MSI Founder Randy Richards and fellow board member Bob Stremba presented a workshop at the 38th Annual International Conference of the Association of Experiential Education in *Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference was loaded with keynote speakers, meetings, networking , and other events and activities, although the workshops are its foundation.
Outdoor instructors, program managers and administrators traveled from as far away as Japan and Ecuador to be at the conference. Attendees that attend the workshops are rejuvenated and inspired to delve deeper into their practices.
Richards’ and Stremba’s workshop was about introducing spiritual practice into experiential education, and was well attended.
Bud Wilson of Sacred Passage, and Krag Unsoeld of Washington State (who also presented, see above) attended and added to the conversation during the workshop. This year the association featured over 120 workshops. For more information on AEE see their website at www.aee.org or Mountain Spirit’s website at www.mtnspirit.org
* A strange place for outdoor educators to meet. More on this in another post.
