Continuing Education: Pilgrim Firs

As many of you know, I just finished one of the most rewarding and transforming graduate programs called Organization Systems Renwal (OSR), now at Bainbridge Graduate Institute.

There is an exciting opportunity for me to continue my education by participating in a week-long retreat on the Olympic Peninsula, but right now, I couldn't afford it.

In lieu of gifts for my birthday or if you just feel like helping me better myself even more, I would be overjoyed and thrilled if you could help me. If I don't meet my goals, you will not be charged.

Here's a quick description of what I'll be doing if I can muster the $$$:

OSR invites alumni to join OSR 20 at Pilgrim Firs for a week of continuing education. This week offers a unique opportunity for renewal, connection, and learning.

You will learn alongside OSR 20 and also be part of a special track designed for alumni in the course officially titled Foundations of OSR, unofficially known as Pilgrim Firs I.

The benefits of the course include:
-Reconnect to the OSR energy
-Engage with the current OSR faculty
-Discover new developments in the field
-Disconnect from daily demands and recalibrate your foundation
-Make new connections with the OSR community

Dates: Monday September 30, 2013 through Friday October 4, 2013

Time: Begins at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning, concludes at 3:30 p.m. on Friday

Cost: $1,850 for the week includes:
-Food and Lodging at Pilgrim Firs
-In-Class Materials
-Sharing the Rock: Shaping Our Future through Leadership for the Common Good by Bill Grace
-Instructional time with OSR Core Faculty and Visiting Faculty
-A link to electronic articles and video links

Participants are responsible for:
-Travel Expenses
-Acquiring or borrowing nine books for the course pre-readings

This special opportunity is for OSR alumni only. You must commit for the entire five days; please note all sales are final. OSR will not refund your registration fee if you are unable to attend.

One alumni described the experience as, "Suit up, show up, lean in, and chill out."
