Schedule

Because we wanted something that was deeper yet non-intimidating like larger conferences, we arranged our keynotes, workshops, breaks and networking events to inspire new ideas, nourish your soul, and provide entertainment.  Select seminars and breakouts are included with General Registration but may require a fee if purchased separately.
