      >For years, the Pueblo of Zuni has been involved in a challenging
      >battle to protect the sacred Zuni Salt Lake (Ma'k'yayanne) from Salt
      >River Project (SRP), a large utility company based in Phoenix, AZ.
      >Over the past few months, SRP has intensified efforts to begin
      >development of an 18,000 acre coal strip mine approximately ten
      >miles from Ma'k'yayanne. As part of the proposed Fence Lake Coal
      >Mine project, SRP plans to pump groundwater at a rate of 80-90
      >gallons a minute over the next 40 years. A number of independent
      >hydrologists believe that underground aquifers supply both water and
      >salt to Ma'k'yayanne, and that any pumping would drain the lake and
      >destroy it. Zuni legend tells of the deity Ma'l'okyattsik'i (Salt
      >Woman) who is believed to live at Ma'k'yayanne. The legend says
      >that if Ma'l'okyattsik'i is desecrated in any way, she will leave
      >Ma'k'yayanne with her sacred salt, never to return. SRP also plans
      >to build a 40 mile long railroad corridor between the mine site and
      >the Coronado Generating Station near St. John's, AZ. The railroad
      >would destroy a number of ancient burial sites and salt-gathering
      >trails across what is now officially known as the "Sanctuary Zone,"
      >an area where warring tribes could set aside hostilities to worship
      >and gather salt in peace. The Sanctuary Zone is eligible for
      >inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the
      >State Register. Recently, Ma'k'yayanne and the Sanctuary Zone were
      >added to the National Trust's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places
      >listing. A special documentary, hosted by Roger Mudd, will air on
      >the History Channel on July 12, 2003. The ultimate hope is that
      >this program will bring attention to the plight of Ma'k'yayanne, and
      >that the Interior Department will reconsider approval of the federal
      >mine permit made in July of 2001, and that SRP will consider
      >abandoning their plans for the Fence Lake Coal Mine. For additional

      >Sunday, November 16 - Thursday, November 20, 2003
      >on the Ocean
      >at Pawleys Island, SC
      >
      >The Courage to Teach Formation Principles and Practices Retreat is
      >for
      >people who want to experience a retreat based on the work of Parker
      >J.
      >Palmer, to learn more about how to create evocative and trustworthy
      >spaces for learning and reflection, and to bring greater depth to
      >the work
      >they are already doing.
      >
      >A program of the Center for Teacher Formation, the retreat is also
      >sponsored in South Carolina by Courage South Circle and the Center
      >for
      >Education and Community of Coastal Carolina University. It will be
      >led by three national Courage to Teach facilitators, Rebecca
      >Blomgren and
      >Sally Z. Hare and Russ Moxley. The location is the Sea View Inn, a
      >charming inn on the Atlantic Ocean on Pawleys Island, S.C., between
      >Charleston and Myrtle Beach.
      >
      >For the first three days of the seminar, we'll be together in
      >retreat,
      >giving us the opportunity to experience the formation process as
      >used
      >in the nationally-known Courage to Teach program. In large group,
      >small group, and solitary settings, we will explore the intersection
      >of our
      >personal and professional lives, making use of stories from our own
      >journeys, reflection on professional practice, and insights from
      >poets,
      >storytellers, and various wisdom traditions. Reflecting on our
      >experience
      >in retreat, the last two days we will look at the underlying
      >principles
      >and practices of formation and explore how participants might use
      >them
      >in their own work - as part of professional development activities,
      >in
      >facilitating circles of trust with colleagues or friends, or in work
      >in
      >renewal and cultural change within schools or other organizations.
      >
      >The retreat will begin at 6 pm, Sunday, November 16, and end with
      >lunch about 1 pm, Thursday, November 20. This program is open to
      >persons who feel drawn to living divided no more, to exploring the
      >intersection of their inner work in the outer world. It is
      >recommended for educators, diversity and health professionals,
      >business and community leaders, and others with an interest in the
      >writing of Parker Palmer. The program is both for persons who have
      >never experienced Courage to Teach - and is also recommended for
      >those who have completed a two-year Courage to Teach program and
      >want renewal or a "refresher".
      >About The Courage to Teach and the Center for Teacher Formation:
      >
      >Under the guidance of Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to
      >Teach,
      >the Fetzer Institute created The Courage to Teach (CTT) program,
      >piloting an approach to professional development called "teacher
      >formation." The formation process invites educators to reclaim
      >their own wholeness and vocational clarity, and makes connections
      >between the renewal of a teacher's spirit and the revitalization of
      >public education.
      >
      >The Center for Teacher Formation, established in 1997, is committed
      >to
      >developing and expanding the work of teacher formation-a process
      >that
      >offers educators an opportunity to explore their inner lives, to
      >deepen
      >the identity and integrity from which good teaching
      >and leadership come. Though there is strong interest in this kind of
      >renewal at all levels of education and in other professions as well,
      >the Center's focus is on professionals related to K-12 public
      >schools, on
      >whom our society depends so heavily but for whom we provide so
      >little
      >encouragement and support. For the first time this year, the Center
      >expanded its work to include leaders in a limited number of others
      >fields.
      >
      >Tuition Costs for the Formation Principles and Practices Workshop:
      >The fee/tuition for the five-day program, including materials, is:
      >$450 for public school teachers
      >$650 for other educators or non-profit
      >$825 for corporate
      >

      >discrimination and the disdain of dominant groups

      >neighborhoods do they utilize as they grow? How do
      >they negotiate the often rough terrains of school,
      >the streets, or incarceration? Finally, how do
      >urban youth develop a critical account of their
