Leadership and the Rule of Benedict

 

 

 

Friday, April 1 – Sunday, April 3, 2016

 

 


Benedictine monks take three vows: Stability, Obedience, and Constant Conversion. This workshop/retreat continues from last year’s examination of stability to understand the implications of the vow of obedience for relationships and for transforming leadership.

 

 

Presenter: Michael Carey, Ph.D; Obl.OSB

 

 

Room, board, and tuition: $250 single; $200 each shared

 

 

Dr. Michael Carey is an oblate of Valyermo. He is the Dean of the Virtual Campus at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. He has taught leadership studies at the graduate level for over 25 years at Gonzaga and is currently working to ensure that Gonzaga's graduate programs online follow in the tradition of Jesuit education that stretches back to St. Ignatius of Loyola. But his first love is St. Benedict and the community of St. Andrew's Abbey, which he has been connected to since 1971.

 

 


 




 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday, April 4th through Friday, April 8th, 2016

 

 

 

 

 

ORGL 522 (Leadership and Community) hybrid course: partly online, partly on location at St. Andrew's Abbey, a monastery located in the Mojave Desert of California.

 

 

 

 

 

ORGL 522 (Leadership and Community) is offered every Fall and Spring to graduate students in the Organizational Leadership and Communication and Leadership Studies programs. The online-based course includes a one-week stay at St. Andrew's Abbey (www.saintandrewsabbey.com), located in Valyermo, California, in the upper Mojave Desert, about an hour’s drive from Burbank. The first half of the online learning prepares students for their participation in the community life of the twenty monks at St. Andrew’s, and the second half of the online learning uses monastic life as a metaphor for experiences in all organizational communities. The course concludes in a paper written by each student that applies his or her learning to the very practical (and non-monastic) realities of organizational life.

 

 

In order to register for the course, students need to first make arrangements to stay in one of seventeen available guest rooms at St. Andrew’s Abbey.

 

 

Arrangements may be made by:

 

 

• $75 non-refundable deposit

 

 

OR Pay in Full:

 

 

• $400 for single occupancy (includes $75 non-refundable deposit)

 

 

• $350 each for shared occupancy (includes $75 non-refundable deposit)

 

 

*There are 2 twin beds in a room*

 

 

Once students make arrangements to stay at the monastery Guest House, University staff will register them into ORGL 522 on Zagweb. Transportation to the monastery in Southern California is the responsibility of the student, although Dr. John Horsman (horsman@gonzaga.edu) and/or Dr. Michael Carey (carey@gonzaga.edu) will pick up anyone who arrives at Burbank Airport between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the Monday that begins the week of the monastic experience.
