In partnership with Copper Beech Institute and the Aetna Foundation, Contemplative Fellowships for Nonprofit Professionals support the growth of nonprofit professionals through contemplative practice in an eligible Overnight Retreat setting. These contemplative trainings provide a supportive environment in which individuals can cultivate mindfulness, compassion, personal wellbeing, and professional efficacy – qualities that can extend into their professional lives and improve workplace culture.
Please note: If you are awarded a fellowship, you are committing to attend the retreat for which you are applying. Should you need to cancel your fellowship for any reason, you must notify Copper Beech Institute immediately at 860-760-9750. Cancellations may result in forfeiting your eligibility for a Hemera Fellowship for the following year.
By applying for a Hemera Fellowship, you agree to allow your contact information to be shared with Hemera Foundation.
