IMG_5546Registration is now open for the 26th Fall Conference scheduled for Thursday, October 21 through Sunday, October 24th at the Ghost Ranch Conference Center in Abiquiu, New Mexico.  The conference begins at 7:00 PM on Thursday and concludes shortly after noon on Sunday.

The conference theme this year is “Walking the Path, Fording the Stream.”

The path we’re on stretches before us.  How do we regard ourselves, the people we meet and the universe around us?  How well are these perceptions working?  How do we choose to react to the inevitable discord and conflict we encounter upon the path, and how do thesIMG_4802e choices define us?  Using experiential activities and exercises, creative expression and reflection, we invite you to explore with us the paths we’re on, our role in creating them, and the freedom and power that arises from the graceful dance with conflict.

Registrations must be postmarked by no later than September 30th, and early bird registrations postmarked by no later than September 15th. All registrants will receive a confirmation letter with more details about the conference.  This year confirmations will be sent only by Email (rather than postal mail) unless specifically requested otherwise. Registration is limited to 90.  Should we receive more than 90 registrations, they will be accepted on a first-received basis.
