Summer Festival and Annual Meeting

Summer Festival is an opportunity for Ipsalu graduates (of Cobra Breath Level 1 and above) to come together with kindred spirits to celebrate and co-create a magical weekend. Make plans to dive deep into the wonderful energy, make new friends, and connect with kindred spirits! Summer Festival is held each year in June.

Annual Meeting will be held November 3-5, 2017 in Grover Beach, CA.  This is adjacent to the renowned Pismo Beach, which is absolutely beautiful!  The annual meeting is open anyone who has received the Level 1 Cobra Breath and is your opportunity to participate, with the Executive Committee, in shaping the future of our organization.  Your voice is a crucial part of this process!  It’s also a great way to see old friends (Bodhi!), make new ones, and deepen relationships in the context of Ipsalu.

This year’s meeting is important also because our President, Dave Small, is at the end of his active term.  We are grateful for his leadership!  We need someone from the community to step into the role of President.  You would have his guidance, as immediate past president, for the first year of your three-year term.  Your third year would similarly be in service of your successor, so the duration of the active Presidency is two years.  Someone who has taken some advanced courses would best suited to the role.

As we expand into SOCIAL MEDIA as a way of reaching out, someone that is savvy in how to navigate those waters would be invaluable, too.   As Ipsalu continues to expand into new countries and grow its base of teachers we look forward to fresh energy and vision to help support that growth.  Being of service in Ipsalu is both a challenging and singularly rewarding experience; now is your chance!

Details of meeting:
When:  Starts the evening of November 3rd and ends after lunch on the 5th.
Where: Holiday Inn Express, Grover Beach, CA.

Make your travel plans early!  Grover Beach is an easy drive or train ride from Southern California and the Bay area.  The local airport is conveniently located in San Luis Obispo.

Please R.S.V.P. to Sharon at
We look forward to seeing you!
