News: Creating a Still Harbor in Uganda
Today, Still Harbor launched the first session, "On Being Present," of the final phase of our reflective leadership curriculum with the 2012-2013 Global Health Corps fellows. Still Harbor accompanies each class of fellows with this reflective leadership curriculum, offering daily sessions at each of three main Global Health Corps training events: Training Institute, Mid-Year Retreat, and Exit Retreat.
Still Harbor's Perry Dougherty facilitated "On Being Present" with the 85 fellows who end their fellowship year this week. Through a series of journaling activities, she challenged them all to consider questions like these: What does it mean to be present? How can cultivating presence help us during transition? How do we reconcile our aspirations with acceptance of what is? All of the fellows ended the session in small group discussions about how they might practice presence during their upcoming career and life transitions.
