The Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center in Chaska, Minnesota, is a beautiful retreat center that has 130 acres of natural beauty surrounding Lake McKnight. Located just 30 minutes from downtown Minneapolis and the Minneapolis–St. Paul Airport, the property has everything needed for an idyllic retreat.
Enjoy Keynote speakers, featured poets, exciting opening and closing events, and a wide choice of workshops that explore the use of creative expression and the literary arts, to promote growth, healing and social justice through language, symbol, and story.
At our 2018 conference, we are introducing “Tracks” into the program to help attendees select workshops which best suit their needs as professionals. The tracks are:
Clinical/Health Care Setting: for those interested in working in both mental health and medical professions
Educational Setting: for those interested in working in schools, universities, after-school programs, etc.
Social Justice: for those interested in working in community settings that address cultural diversity, gender identity, and social issues
Spirituality: for those interested in working in spiritual centers or pastoral care, or whose work has primarily a spiritual focus
