Sunday 5 July: We are not going to proceed with the conference in August. We did not receive sufficient Early Bird registrations to justify the risks involved in proceeding with the three-day event at Wisemans Retreat. There were also risks involved in proceeding with a one-day event, so we are stepping back and drawing breath.
We know that the concept of “Mind in the Matter” was appealing, and the format we planned out for the conference was exciting. We know that we had gathered together a wonderful group of people to facilitate the four strands of the conference and run the workshops. However, we needed to be sure before the end of June that we would have the numbers to make it viable, and that did not happen.
We are taking pause and rethinking how to proceed. We have a management committee meeting on 7 July and we will be discussing the matter then. We will report to you what we resolve.
Thanks for your understanding. We maintain the vision of an event that is fresh and vital, with the opportunity for personal inspiration and transformational development within the container of a mindful, inquisitive and appreciative group of fellow travellers on the spiritual road.
We are also proceeding with other activities. The next issue of the Journal of Spirituality, Leadership and Management will be released soon. And our next Cafe in Sydney is coming up on 25 July, featuring Anna Harper.
We also invite you to become a financial member of SLaM. It helps to keep us afloat, and it inspires us to keep going.
Susan Goff and Glenn Martin for the Management Committee
