Work and Spirit Series

In order for corporations, government agencies and non-profit organizations to be successful today, employees need to be committed to and passionate about their work. Key to increasing passion and commitment is the promotion of spirit at work. Spirit at work is about finding meaning and purpose and making a difference. It involves a sense of connection to others and to something larger than self.

The Work and Spirit Series is designed to provide breathing space to professionals to reflect on their deepest values and hopes for their own lives and for society. With retreats led by seasoned facilitators, Cranaleith offers a sanctuary-like setting for quite reflection and a process for supportive dialogue with colleagues. Retreats range from one to several days and can be customized to the unique needs of an organization. Regardless of the program offering, participants have the opportunity to explore, from their own experience, what humanizes the workplace, honors the human spirit, and frees people to do their best work, from a sense of integrity and larger purpose.

“The most helpful aspect of the program was taking the time, without pressure, to reflect on my decisions, my goals and the path going forward.” Past Participant
