Blue Ridge YMCABlue Ridge Reflections: Word-Paths for Growth and Healing

Our conference will be held at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly on Black Mountain which is nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains near Asheville, North Carolina.

The retreat center is a full-service conference center situated on 1200 acres of woodland beautified by mountain streams, wildflowers, ridges, valleys and spectacular views. This mountain vista lends itself to poetry, story, and NAPT'S quest for enhanced well being, self-reflection, personal and professional growth.



blue ridgeWe are currently accepting proposals for regular workshops for next year's conference in April. Our regular workshops should be 90 minutes in length, so plan your workshops accordingly. If you think that your work and experience may contribute to the professional growth, education or training of our participants and tie in to this year's theme, please submit a proposal. We will be offering CEU's for attending the conference workshops.

Please download and fill out the proposal form below and send it as soon as possible before the deadline. Also, please feel free to pass on the information about our conference to friends and colleagues who may be interested in attending or submitting a proposal on how writing, journaling, poetry, or any of the healing arts could tie into our theme.
