Register for Being Benedictine

Being Benedictine in the 21st Century will not be a traditional conference.  It focus is a FACILITATED CONVERSATION among all participants about expanding how we live the Benedictine tradition now and into the future—come ready to actively participate. In order to have all voices represented in the conversation, we are allotting reservations by current commitment: oblate, vowed, and interested in living Benedictine spirituality and limiting number from any one community. We can accept a total of 200 participants for this conversation.

Participant limit is 3-5 oblates per community and 2-4 vowed members per community--once that limit is reached, please consider attending as an observer. Observers will attend all speaker sessions, meals and socials. They can observe the facilitated dialogue sessions if they choose but WILL NOT participate in the dialogue. Regular participant fee is $175 and includes meals, socials and conference materials. Observer fee is $115 and also includes meals, socials and conference materials.

In this space we'll list segments by community or cohort as they fill. If you are in a filled segment, consider attending as an OBSERVER.
