Awakenings Conference 2018 – Pathfinding in an age of Polarization

Register now for Awakenings, April 26-29, 2018. It’s a 3 1/2-day study conference in beautiful western New England. The 2018 theme will be “Pathfinding in an Age of Polarization.”

This is our fourth biennial Awakenings Conference. Each one brings together thinkers, musicians, consultants, artists, and visionaries. We gather around tables for conversations and meals. We offer presentations, workshops, a bookstore, a marketplace — and plenty of time to meet up with people from communities across the continent. Each year we listen, laugh, learn, sing, wonder, and feast.

Your full conference registration includes noon and evening meals (plus snacks in between) from Thursday afternoon through Saturday, with vegetarian and gluten free options. Refreshments will also be available Sunday after worship. Daily registrations also include all the meals on that day. Enrolled students are half-price.

Holyoke’s Homewood Suites offers a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate of $119 per night plus tax, including breakfast and a shuttle to and from conference events for persons without a car. This is an all-suites hotel, located across Highway 91 from the Holyoke Mall. The hotel is about five miles (11 minutes) from the church. Reservations can be made by phoning the hotel front desk (413) 532-3100 and mentioning that you are registering as an Awakenings participant.
