Dear Beloved Community,
We, Summer Institute Planning Committee, miss you greatly. Who would have thought we are still are this pandemic? That being said, it is with a very heavy heart that, after extensive thought and careful deliberation, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel in person Summer Institute for 2021.
Thinking ahead to July, as a community that values inclusion and collective care, we don’t want to create in-person situations that inadvertently exclude those at higher risk, or create situations that force those at higher risk to publicly identify themselves. Our decision-making must center the needs of the most vulnerable.
We really did create a most magical, virtual experience last Summer and we will recreate that again, with some newer twists. So please stayed tuned and look for more information about “Summer Institute—Food for your Soul” .
In peace and love,
The Summer Institute Planning Committee
