In this study, the author examines how a model of self was cultivated through the social practices of a transformative professional development program for urban public school leaders. She combines insights from ethnography and discourse analysis. 17 administrators and building leaders participated in the study. The author identified three practices that were used at the retreats to facilitate participants’ access to an essential and true inner self: (a) Modeling of multiple ways of talking about an inner self; (b) ritual experience of the self in relation to others; and (c) the connection of the self to a natural order.
