On the surface our times exhibit an epidemic of disconnection. Yet for many of us who teach, the art of connection has become the heart of our practice. And it has opened new realms of deeper learning to our students.

AEPL’s 26th Annual Summer conference seeks to connect, affirm, and unite those for whom deep encounter—with others, with the world, and with ourselves—lies at the heart of learning.

We will share stories, practices, and ideas. We will come together in joyful and thoughtful community. And we will consider how together we might help make the I-Thou relationship—that AEPL founder James Moffett, in 1968, found to lie at the center of the universe of human discourse—become the warmly beating heart of the whole of human life.
