Fall, 2023

Staybridge Suites in McLean, Virginia

November 7 – 10, 2023

The Voyagers will meet at the Staybridge Suites in McLean, Virginia, November 7 – 10, 2023.

Our focus for the meeting will be on looking at aging through the lens of Bowen Theory. Priscilla Friesen, faculty member at the Bowen Center and a founding member of Navigating Systems, Inc. will be our speaker on the topic.

Bob Hunter will be presenting, as will several other members of the Voyagers. We also will continue the discussion begun in Albuquerque (with Kathy Wiseman) on the intertwined branches of clergy and Bowen Theory. As usual, there will be Family of Origin groups, the opportunity for case studies, and look at the upcoming lectionary through a systems lens.

Registration is $300. 

The Room and Meals cost for the Staybridge is as follows: Single-occupancy suite for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday is $480. Double-occupancy (one bedroom suite, please arrange your own roommate) is $250 per person. This includes breakfast on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and a light dinner with beer or wine on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will have our traditional Dutch-treat “Voyagers’ Night Out” at J.Gilberts on Thursday.
