Sell at the SI bookstore!

Not particularly crafty, don’t worry, you can offer a service like chair massage, or reiki.  You can also help the scholarship fund by donating an item or gift basket for our raffle table.  Please send me a quick email at […]

The Good News is that it’s June 1, which means there’s only a little over a month before Summer Institute. The Bad News is that, at 11:59pm tonight, we must start charging a $75 registration fee per person.

Applications for the 2018 Summer Institute Morning Seminars/Afternoon Workshops

The 2017 SI ended in July, and the Summer Institute Planning Council got right to work. We’ve met, and reviewed what went on in 2017, and read your comments about it (you’ll hear more about that later). Now it’s time to start on the 2018 SI. The first order of business is Morning Seminars […]
