Sponsor this Conference
This conference is a grassroots effort to have a focused conversation about the inclusion of contemplative practice into our everyday lives and our institutions. Financially, the goal of the conference is to be revenue neutral. A second financial goal is to provide access to the conference for anyone who has an interest in this discussion. Therefore, the registration fee was set low to allow access to all. Virginia Tech has been generous in their sponsorship and we are seeking additional sponsors. We would be grateful if you would support this conference and help bring contemplative practice into the cultural mainstream.
All sponsors will receive acknowledgement on the sponsorship page. Sponsors providing $500 and above will receive one free registration (while registration is open).
$250 $500 $750 $1000
