Who Should Apply
We invite you to submit a proposal on any aspect of spirituality, personal or planetary healing. Our focus and vision for this year’s conference is the connection between spirituality and the land, our inner and outer landscapes and the path to finding our purpose in life. How do we define our spirituality? What does it mean to live a life infused with intention? How do we co-create and bring into being a sustainable future?
Another world is not only possible, She is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.Arundhati Roy
Throughout the 39 years of conferences, our purpose has always been to bring together people of diverse spiritual, cultural and ethnic backgrounds to share traditions, respecting and celebrating our similarities and differences. We continue this tradition today and emphasize no one spirituality or religion.
We welcome a variety of formats: formal paper presentations, round table discussions, activities, experiential, demonstration and discussion. If your workshop is child-friendly or appropriate for teens, please indicate that in your proposal, otherwise we will expect all workshops to be adults-only and will be noted in programming as such. Activities that celebrate spirituality are encouraged, including worship services and rituals. Please review the conference history pages for previous workshops.
In an effort to provide maximum accessibility for all participants, your willingness to repeat your workshop is appreciated! We will attempt to the best of our abilities to honor all requests made for room requirements, thank you for your flexibility on this.
All classroom spaces at the St. Mary’s U of MN Cascade Meadows campus are fully equipped with computer access, podiums, white boards, etc. You are not required to use any of this equipment but it is there if needed. If your workshop is selected we will review your needs and plan to have everything in place ahead of time, including any training you may need to be comfortable presenting. All presenters will have a volunteer assigned to them to assist with any technological or other issues throughout your workshop.
Please note that Proselytizing (attempting to convert others to your viewpoint) will not be tolerated, nor is using your workshop only as a means to sell a product or business. If you have a product to sell or business to promote, we welcome you to apply for a vendor space, vendor applications will be opening April 2023. Workshops are meant to teach, heal, inspire or to guide and create community.
