Good News & Updates

We have some good news to share.

I'm happy to share with you that Still Harbor's Executive Director, Perry Dougherty, gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl and has begun her maternity leave. She will be spending time with her family at home for the next twelve weeks. 

While Perry is away, I will be managing week-to-week executive and leadership tasks for Still Harbor, and I'm proud to say that programs and operations are thriving at the moment.

We are deeply grateful that your support of Still Harbor has meant that our team can continue to push forward our vision of elevating spirituality for social change.

Programmatic highlights of the next few months include:

  • As I write this, Still Harbor facilitators, Akwese Nkemontoh and Eliza Ramos, are en route to lead retreats for young global health leaders in East and Southern Africa. I myself will be heading down to New York to lead a retreat for the same constituency at the end of the month. Together, the three of us will support and train more than 130 young people in the skills and practices of transformative leadership this month.
  • Our team of six chaplains and spiritual directors are offering one-on-one chaplaincy and spiritual support to non-profit organizations and fellowship programs. We are currently on call to accompany nearly 200 people working in social justice organizations not just in Boston but also around the world.
  • Still Harbor's Spiritual Direction Practicum students have begun the second half of their year-long program, in which they will be working with clients and further developing their accompaniment skills. If you find yourself interested in exploring what this program has to offer, please check out the details here and stay tuned for more information. Applications for the 2017-2018 cohort will be released in March.
  • Lastly, Anchor magazine is accepting submissions for the next issue between now and March 15, 2017. Our editorial team is thrilled about the quality and quantity of work that is coming in. If you haven't yet had a chance, read Issue 06 online here.

This is all to say, I am thrilled to share these highlights of Still Harbor's latest work. I remain deeply grateful for Perry's ongoing leadership as well as your thoughtful engagement. On behalf of Perry and myself, thank you for your support.

Please don't hesitate to be in touch in the coming months.

All my best,

Edward Cardoza
Founder and Spiritual Director, Still Harbor
