Wow – Fantastic 2015 Symposium

It’s the Tuesday after Symposium weekend. We are all still recovering. Not just from the physical effort of putting on a large 2 day event, but also from the intellectual stimulation, the wealth of information received, the deep show of faith and spirituality from so many, the new friends made and old friends reconnected, and more. Set in two picture-perfect days in rural Vermont, keynote speakers and participants all felt energized, sometimes challenged, and often comforted.

We will provide more information as we move forward, and will be posting follow-up information as we receive it from speakers and participants. (For example, we just updated Gus Speth’s speaker page with additional information on work to create a new economy.) So be sure to check back often, we will not updates and changes on the blog here.

Meanwhile, be sure to Save The Date for next year, August 27 – 28, 2016.
– and if you plan on going to the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City in October, we hope to see you there too during our presentation.

Feeling thanks for the ability to do this work for all of you.

The Pope and us

Laudato Si Joy and Wonder, and the fight for Justice What a joy and wonder to have the Pope issue the Encyclical.
