This year the conference sessions will be held at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and Spa (commonly referred to as "Starr Pass"), the same as our host hotel. Starr Pass conveniently houses several restaurants, pools, workout facility, and spa. Each morning guests are invited to participate in Mitakuye Oyasin, a traditional Native American ceremony and unique Sonoran Desert experience. Participants will listen to the Native American Flute, burn a sage prayer tie, and receive an eagle feather blessing and have the opportunity to begin each day by reflecting on the connection we all have with nature and each other, finding focus and creating lasting memories. At sunset, guests will also have the opportunity to gather on the Salud Terrace to watch the sunset and experience our nightly tradition - the Tequila toast.
