The Intensive Leadership Experience

The Intensive Leadership Experience is a full-immersion experience that takes place in residence over five days.

This LE is currently held every other year in a location that moves around the region to make it more accessible to participants.

Participants are invited into a covenanted religious community that is a living expression of Unitarian Universalist core values. Each day begins in worship. After worship, participants engage in learning and group work. Evenings are spent exploring different spiritual practices which can enhance and anchor our individual spiritual lives. Our days end in Chalice Circles, which are our daily small group meetings which offer a space to deeply practice our covenant and process the day’s learnings and experience. Chalice Circles are braver spaces where each person can allow the still small voice within to speak its truth in an environment that honors its presence.


The next Intensive Leadership Experience will be October, 2021, in Little Rock, Arkansas.
