• Courage and Light

    Renewing passion and creativity for organizations and individuals. Courage & Light™ offers a DVD-based learning experience inspired by master educator Parker J. Palmer and acclaimed photographer Jim Brandenburg. 

    Courage & Light is a multimedia DVD produced by the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) in partnership with Aurora Pictures in 2009. It brings together world-renowned nature photographer Jim Brandenburg and widely acclaimed author and educator Parker J. Palmer in a rich dialogue that draws equally from their own life experiences and from the world’s great wisdom traditions.

    Hosted by polar explorer Ann Bancroft, the film focuses on experiences documented in Chased by the Light, the Emmy-nominated public television documentary that followed Brandenburg on a quest for creative and personal renewal in Minnesota’s north woods. 

    The Courage and Light kit includes information on how to use the DVD to facilitate sessions on personal growth with groups such as school teachers and administrators, business groups, etc.
