The Conference Center at Emory University
Atlanta, Georgia, USA
September 26 – 29, 2024

Hosted by Contemplative Outreach and CP 12-Step Outreach service team, this 40th anniversary conference is intentionally located on the grounds of Emory University, the home of the Thomas Keating Archives, tangible evidence of his legacy and its future access for many generations.
You can find list of speakers and presentations here.
The cost of the conference registration is $250 USD which covers the conference program and meals; the hotel registration is separate and is $180 USD per night plus tax. Thus, registration is a two-step process:
Please register for the conference here.
View the event here.
Please register here for the conference hotel. You may wish to share a room and split the cost with another person, which you can arrange on your own.
There is no shuttle between the Atlanta airport and the hotel, so attendees will need to take a cab, Uber or Lyft to the Emory Conference Center from the airport. For those driving to the hotel, the cost of parking is $15 per day.

Included in your registration is a one-day conference on Saturday, September 28 with a variety of speakers. For those who cannot afford the time or resources to attend the full conference, this one-day conference is a good alternative. Registration for this one-day option will open soon.

Some of the programming will be freely livestreamed and some of it will be recorded and posted on the Contemplative Outreach website after the conference.
