Dear Proposal Applicant,

Thank you for your interest and time in submitting your proposal. The coming 2016 program comes off the heels of very successful 2012 and 2014 Symposiums, which were both sold out events. This event is co-sponsored with The Garrison Institute, and will be November 3-6, 2016 at The Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY.  For 2016, we are concentrating on the themes of Radical Compassion in Palliative and End of Life Care between all aspects of the team, from patient to doctor, nurse, social worker and chaplain.

We are looking forward to it being a rich four days within community and are seeking innovative workshop proposals that include discussion and experiential aspects with q/a and community participation. We view our presenters as the thought leaders in the field, and support your progressive ideas toward communication and intimacy as it relates to healing.
