2016 Schedule

What’s New

As a new innovation this year, we are splitting the conference into two separate tracks, which we are calling a ‘Fundamentals’ track and a ‘Advanced’ track. The two tracks will overlap at various times and come together halfway through the conference. The Fundamentals track is designed for people who are new or fairly new to the Principles. The focus will be on clarifying what the Principles are, their significance, implications and applications. The idea is to keep it simple and clear. The Advanced track is designed for those with more experience of the Principles. It will assume a certain level of understanding of the ideas and terminology. The theme of this track is ‘Going Deeper’.

Whilst people are obviously free to choose where they go, we would strongly recommend the Form track for people who do not yet feel fully comfortable with the Principles themselves. This is not quite as true in the opposite direction. Because all of our speakers will ultimately be focused on the same ideas, we feel that the Form track will still be fully relevant even for someone who has been immersed in the Principles for many years.

Additionally, we are providing a ‘Teen’ track for kids aged 12-19. This will only be available the first day of the conference when there is no school. The focus will be on introducing teens to the Principles in a way that is relatable for their age group.

Please note that the schedule is subject to change over the next few weeks, but we don’t expect anything major.

And the more we see the impersonal nature of the human condition, the easier it is to accept and embrace both our frailties and our greatness.
