Call for Workshop Proposals

Call for Proposals ~ Opens February 1, 2019

Note updates: The schedule has been revised, we will be returning to offering four workshop sessions.

Proposals will be accepted until April 31st. Proposals must be submitted through the form at the bottom of this page.

We invite you to submit a workshop proposal on any aspect of spirituality. We are particularly interested in workshops that focus on ways in which people of diverse spiritual traditions work together, understanding and respecting the similarities, and diversities of their own and others’ lives and traditions. We encourage presenters and participants from varying ethnic, racial, age, ability and class backgrounds. We emphasize no one spirituality or religion – all approaches are invited.

There will be four 90 minute workshop periods. We welcome a variety of formats: formal paper presentations, round table, activity, ritual, experiential, demonstration, discussion and child friendly. Child friendly sessions can either be geared to children or children and adults. Although children are welcome at these workshops, we expect all other workshops to be adults only and will make note of that in the conference program. Activities related to celebration of spirituality are encouraged. In an effort to provide maximum accessibility of workshops to participants, your willingness to repeat your workshop is appreciated.

All presenters will receive notice of acceptance / non-acceptance via email by May 31st. Presenters and co-presenters will be able to register for the main conference at a reduced rate, if they would like to attend workshops. The rest of the conference benefits will be available at no cost. *Note: we have drastically reduced the cost of the conference to make it more accessible. Those presenters that are also exhibiting will be able to enjoy the conference workshops for no cost. Information regarding a co-presenter must be submitted with your workshop proposal.

Please note: Once the selections for the 2019 conference have been made, your provided information will be used for the printable conference program and on our website. Your workshop description may be edited for conciseness. Please submit separate proposal for each workshop. Please do not send information that has not been requested. Please complete the form in full, incomplete forms will not be accepted. Thank you!
