“Part of the Whidbey Institute’s path is to help people find their own authentic center point, the place in themselves where they are able to be at ease, to be resilient, to be flexible, and to be at peace.” —Joel Shrut

The Wesley Group Retreat

September 18, 2016 - September 20, 2016

This retreat is closed to public registration.

About the Wesley Group, from www.thewesleygroup.com:

“We are internationally recognized thought leaders who know how to help families shift their cultures to accomplish great things.

What we do is actually quite simple to understand.

It is well known that for families to succeed in the next generation, they must create a productive family culture.

Unfortunately, most families don’t know how to do shift their own cultures in truly sustainable ways. They may get along. They may not. Either way they often don’t know what they should be doing or how they can come to the kinds of deeper agreements necessary to truly support their long-term mutual well-being. Even when they arrive at agreements, often stubborn family dynamics undo their good intentions.

Our hard won approach fosters productive dialog, candid discussion, open thinking, and creative problem solving. We help families developing solid resolutions that stick. More importantly, we help families follow through on these commitments and gain the skills and capacities they need to be successful across generations. This work shifts the family culture. When the culture shifts, things work.

As skilled facilitators, consultants and coaches, this ability to help families cut through complexity, communicate more effectively and come to collaborative agreements that lead to committed action is invaluable to families who seek to accomplish great things.”
