Conference Roundup & Review
Lessons from the Theme

Conference Committee Chair, Rev. Charli Tupper, and her co-chair, Stacy Macris Ros, created an opening session that guided us to place our intentions on "yellow bricks" that were on display throughout the conference. Banquet decorations built on the theme, with poppies at our feet and magic in the air.
And Harold Payne entertained with his on-the-spot song challenge, creating a song based on an the suggested phrase, "Toto escapes"!
Our Workshop Presenter, Dr. Jonathan Young, and his co-presenter, Anne Bach, led us on a SEEKER's journey through Red Riding Hood's forest, along the Wizard of Oz's Yellow Brick Road and into the swamps of Louisiana to find our fortunes. We learned about using familiar and unfamiliar tales and how telling stories casts a certain kind of spell on the listener, and how to use these techniques in our teaching and talks and for our own journaling practice.
