Do you want to teach a workshop in Virginia next summer


We're pleased to announce that we are joyfully accepting SUUSI 2011 - Joy! - workshop proposals through Nov. 1! Please log into your SUUSI SOLIS account to find the proposal form.
Go to and log in using your email address and password. If you have been to SUUSI since 2007, you should have an account already in the system. You will be able to reset your password, if you have forgotten it or if you have never logged in. You will need to be able receive mail at your registered email address to reset your password. Once you log in, you can click on the "Submit a Workshop Proposal for SUUSI 2011" link to start your proposal.
Successful workshops take many different forms and shapes. Together, we teach and learn about music, the arts, crafts and hobbies, spiritual and religious growth, movement and bodywork, relationships, sports and recreation, and sometimes we just gather to play games and have fun. Most workshops are held on campus, but some involve local travel to various places. Some workshops this year will be brand new, while some will be those that we've enjoyed in the past. And some will be 1-4 day events, while some will be happen every day of SUUSI. As a whole, the SUUSI workshop program promotes community-building, personal growth, and joy by offering a diverse selection of high-quality workshops. Workshop leaders receive credit toward their SUUSI registration costs in exchange for their volunteer service.
A few tips: as you create your proposal, please pay special attention to space and equipment requirements. The more equipment that you are able to provide for yourself (cd players, flip charts, ipod speakers, etc.), the better. And while we are limited in the spaces that we can offer for workshops, knowing as much as possible about your space wishes will increase our ability to offer something suitable. Also, please be sure to indicate any flexibility that you may have in the number of sessions that your workshop will include, as well as when and on which days the workshop will be offered. We aim to offer a balance of single-day and multi-day offerings, held in both the morning and afternoon slots. And finally, ask me questions. If you're new to leading workshops, or of you have an idea for something you'd like to offer but aren't sure about some of the specifics, or if you just have a general question, please let me know. I have personally been blessed by attending and leading numerous workshops over the years at SUUSI, and I truly can't wait to join with you in continuing that beautiful history of joy, growth, and friendship. You can always email me at
And remember, Nov.1 one is the deadline!
