Practicing Resurrection: School Inspires Hope and Transformation While Serving Communities

GREENSBORO, NC, March 31st —The Servant Leadership School of Greensboro in conjunction with Holy Trinity Episcopal Church is hosting its second national Co-Creation Conference May 1–3, 2014 in Greensboro.

Co-Creation 2014 keynote speakers are Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault, author of “The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three”  “The Wisdom Jesus,” “Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening,” and several other books and articles; Dr. Phyllis Tickle, founding editor of the Religion Department of Publishers Weekly, lecturer and author of more than two dozen books in religion and spirituality; and Rev. Jon Wortmann, ordained minister and graduate of Harvard Divinity School, executive and mental coach, speaker and author of “Mastering Communication at Work: How to Lead, Manage, and Influence” and “The Three Commitments of Leadership”. Wortmann is also a regular contributor to Huffington Post.

“We do all that we can possibly do through spiritual practices in our school to nurture spiritual intelligence—as this is our source of hope, direction, meaning,” said Ruth D. Anderson, Ph.D., Executive Director and Faculty for The Servant Leadership School. “We are creating a sacred space in Co-Creation 2014 where we can listen to the intelligence of our compassionate hearts and invite participants into a time of reflection, renewal and spiritual and transformation.”

The Servant Leadership School of Greensboro has been offering classes, weekend workshops, training and retreats on various aspects of servant leadership in the community since 1992 and has nurtured a generation of servant leaders who have made a significant impact in their communities.

“Wisdom Schools have formed in times of great spiritual and cultural transition as a crucible for transformation and a meeting ground between ancient, time-tested practices and emerging spiritual insights,” said author and Co-Creation 2014 presenter Cynthia Bourgeault. “The core assertion is that wisdom cannot be accessed by the mind alone; it requires a transformation of the entire being.”

The three-day conference will also include opportunities to engage with one another in a variety of ways: through contemplative worship; participation in a 24/7 prayer room; a story lounge; a global “Walk One at One” on World Labyrinth Day; and a Unity Walk into downtown Greensboro at the end of the conference.
