ResilienceCon will be hosted at the Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, TN.
The Scarritt-Bennett Center offers an exceptionally beautiful and serene environment right in the heart of downtown Nashville. The campus is a combination of historic buildings (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and tree-lined green spaces. The Scarritt-Bennett Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to social justice, and we are supporting many strengths-based initiatives by supporting the Center. We hope the space will promote ResilienceCon goals by providing space (literally) for attendees to reflect on their roles as researchers and practitioners.
Scarritt-Bennett, near Vanderbilt University, is within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops in the vibrant West End and Midtown areas. It is a short drive to Broadway music venues.
Housing is available on-site that is consistent with their mission to provide a place for mindfulness and spiritual reflection. Like many retreat centers, the housing is simple and modest (no televisions in rooms and every two rooms share a bath). We invite you to use the opportunity of the meeting to explore mindfulness in these surroundings and at least partially unplug. We believe that a less distracting setting will foster collaboration and connection.
