Deadline for Fall 2009 – Summer 2010 Residencies: April 30, 2009

Are you a grassroots organizer or a social, environmental or economic justice leader? We know you work hard at all dimensions of strategy, community building, organizational leadership and movement building. Thank you for all you do in these hard and exciting times!

But with your high level of commitment, we also know that you may skimp on the time needed to keep yourself creative, healthy and energized. Have you taken a rest lately? Do you need to renew your energy in the face of economic and political turmoil? Have you come to a turning point in your life/work? Are you burned out?

Apply now for the Windcall Residency Award or nominate a colleague.

Windcall Residents spend 2-3 weeks in beautiful natural settings with a small group of social, economic and environmental justice leaders who share open time and space for reflection, artistic exploration, contemplative practices, transformative learning and rest in order to bring renewed energy to the work. Windcall time is your time — open time and space with no expectations — which has been a powerful experience for its over 435 alumni.

Windcall is accepting applications and nominations for the 2009-2010 residencies (sites in Washington, Vermont, and other locations TBA). Please see our website at for more information, lists of past residents and their testimony. Applications can be requested by e-mailing
