Parker Palmer is an author, educator, and activist who focuses on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality and social change.
Parker is the founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal (CCR) whose mission is to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it. Since 1997 CCR has offered programs to help teachers, physicians, clergy and others “rejoin soul and role,” renewing their passion for their work, reclaiming its basic values and deepening their service to others.
"Good work is done with heart as well as knowledge and skill, done with a depth of commitment that brings integrity and courage to the workplace. But workplace culture can make it risky to reveal our hearts. So we hide them – and sometimes lose them. By supporting teachers, medical professionals, clergy and others who want to reclaim their hearts, we bring new life to them, their work, and the people they serve." ~ Parker Palmer
