    We are excited to inform you that this year's MSR Retreat will go ahead online!  We have been hard at work adapting the program to offer an immersive experience that people can participate in remotely.  Please save the dates and make plans to enroll as soon as the registration link goes live.

    The Details

    Dates: August 11-14 2020
    Fees: $25 for Students $50 for Faculty and other Professionals
    Spaces limited to 75 participants
    Scholarships available

    The Rhythm of Our Time

    We're holding an intention for participants to bring the spirit of 'being on retreat' to their lives during the totality of the program.  Each person's experience will have a unique rhythm in their day/week depending on your global time zone but everyone will share a mix of whole-group circle, break out sessions, and personal time.

    On the 11th we will gather to kick off the Retreat with opening exercises and information for the entire group.  The middle two days will offer a blend of Whole Group Plenary sessions, optional workshop offerings, and opportunities to engage in private or small group inquiry and reflection. And on the final day we will gather to draw on the creative energy and relationships formed throughout the event to focus on our research projects for AOM 2021.

    Given the opportunity to evolve this year's MSR Retreat to a 'distributed' format and the remarkable circumstances bringing us together on a global scale, this chance to gather the MSR Community in Retreat together is more important than ever and we know you will experience deep fulfillment through participating.

    We'll let you know when registration opens on the AOM website.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions or are interested in leading one of the sessions, please reach out by reply to this message or to any of us (info below) any time.

    Respectfully yours,
