Bethlehem is located 60 miles north of Philadelphia and 80 miles east of New York City in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  It is situated in an area rich in history, culture, and outdoor recreation opportunities.  A music festival will be in progress the week of the workshop.  For more information about Bethlehem and attractions, please visit the Lehigh Valley Attractions link.

Due to the concurrent music festival, we need a sense of how many hotel rooms to place on hold by July 9. If you are attending, please drop a line to Tara Coyle with "Emergent Meaning Workshop" as your subject. This does not constitute registration to the workshop it is for our planning purposes only.
