SOME CONFERENCE AFTER-THOUGHTS FROM GORDON NEUFELD
It struck me as I was preparing for my four 2022 conference sessions, how well they actually fit together as a whole. If you registered for the conference, which took place online from May 12-14, 2022, and were intending on viewing these sessions, I would suggest treating them as a set, starting with my anchor keynote, followed by session C1 on trauma, and then going to session A4 on happiness, before ending with session E5 on music.
I enjoyed preparing for these sessions immensely, feeling as if I was breaking through to new realizations and new ways of conveying what I was seeing. (Hopefully that is not just a comforting self-serving illusion). The most cherished feedback I received was actually from our database programmer who said that it opened his eyes to what became self-evident as soon as the words were spoken. It has always been my greatest challenge and fulfillment, to find the words that can open the eyes to the pivotal truths that were always there but had not yet entered our consciousness, or at least not with the weight that should be given them.
What I missed tremendously with our online conference is the interaction with the audience. I pretend the audience is in that little green light in the camera that I stare at, and I don’t quite know what to do with myself when that light suddenly disappears. I decided that what I could do is set up a separate Q&A webinar for conference attendees who have viewed my sessions. We’ve set the date for Monday, August 29, 2022 at 1:00–2:30 pm PDT.
There is no fee for this webinar. Instructions on how to submit a question about material covered in my sessions will be provided upon registration. I look forward to hearing from you.
The feedback we’ve received from over 700 registrants who attended our live 2022 conference has been outstanding. But what we’ve heard most from participants over and over again is how much they appreciate the ability to view the conference session recordings long after the live conference ends. The three keynotes by Gordon, Tamara Strijack and Deborah MacNamara were absolutely engaging. The remaining presentations all served to flesh out the implications and applications, offering further context to the anchor keynote.
If you didn’t get a chance to register for the live conference, or have friends that you think would benefit from this material, it is not too late to register for access to all of the recordings. The sooner one registers, the longer one has access to this feast of insights. SEE CONFERENCE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS.
