Candle in the Window Conference

Guest Author - Carla Ruschival

Themed issue-oriented workshops, singing, hiking, socializing, quiet time - all this and more happens in August at this special conference for blind and visually impaired adults.

Candle in the Window is a small nonprofit organization that seeks to build both individual skills and a sense of community among blind and visually impaired people from across the United States. For more than 20 years Candle in the Window has been welcoming blind people from throughout the nation and from all walks of life to its conferences. It has provided a place for folks to feel welcome and comfortable as they explore problems, share their talents and abilities, and learn new skills.

The 2007 Candle in the Window conference theme is "Can You Relate? Navigating Relationships as Blind People". According to conference organizers, questions to be addressed during this 5-day event include:

1) What do we hope to gain by creating, nurturing, and ending relationships?

2) What strategies do we currently use to engage or disengage in relationships?

3) What have we learned while growing up that influences our ability and willingness to engage in relationships?

4) What are the similarities and differences in creating relationships with people with and without visual impairments?

This year's conference will not only include presentations and discussions, but will also allow plenty of time for hiking, singing, socialization, and quiet reflection.

Candle in the Window will be held from August 8 through August 12, 2007, at Wooded Glen, a retreat center in Henryville, Indiana. Henryville is located near Louisville, Kentucky.

Cost of the 2007 conference is $360 per person; if you send a nonrefundable deposit by July 1, you will receive a $15 discount. Payment plans and limited scholarships are also available.

Often conferences and summer camps have large numbers of participants, and you might find yourself feeling "lost in the crowd". The organizers of Candle in the Window keep the number of conference participants few in number so you are sure to feel involved in the fun and learning at every step along the way.
