Review Detailed Program      


ToP Network is celebrating 25 years of ToP at its 2016 Annual Gathering. Come join us for an exciting program as we gather together for several days of learning, creating, networking, and celebrating ToP. Spend time in carefully selected sessions designed to help you grow and develop as a ToP facilitator. Take some time to learn from your peers and see what new and exciting things you can incorporate into your ToP practice. Hear about the interesting work that is being done with ToP all across the country, and lend your stories, ideas, and experiences to the Gathering so that we can all learn together.

Your ToP Network Annual Gathering 2016 registration includes:

  • access to all the gathering sessions (framed in yellow above),
  • a ticket to the special Sunday night celebration dinner celebrating 25 years of ToP, and
  • meals at the Franciscan Renewal Center from lunch on Friday through breakfast on Monday.

Please stay posted for more details about the Gathering program. As we get closer to the event, we will be able to share a more complete program that will outline each of the sessions that will take place at the Gathering.

**Before and after the Annual Gathering, you have the special opportunity to take part in several courses that are designed specifically to help you grow as a ToP facilitator. You will have the chance to choose among five pre- and post-gathering courses (additional fees required). These courses offer a deeper dive into topics of interest offered by ToP trainers and are a wonderful way to make use of this event and your travel time in a way that maximizes your experience.

Full day courses are offered on Wednesday and Thursday, January 6th & 7th before the Gathering begins and early afternoon on Monday, January 11th through midday on Tuesday, January 12th. Please see additional descriptions of these offerings - links are provided below. These courses are offered at an additional fee.

****Also before, during, and after the Gathering, there will be time and opportunities to refresh yourself and explore a variety of local adventures (some requiring separate registrations).

The “Fun in the Sun” group from the Arizona Host Team is excited to present a variety of Arizona experiences. They encourage you to come early and stay late to sample from the amazing treats Arizona has to offer. Some of these experiences are free, and some have additional fees. These events are being managed by the “Fun in the Sun” team, and separate registration is required. Please stay tuned for more information about the Arizona experiences that will be available.

The Franciscan Renewal Center is a beautiful retreat center in Paradise Valley, Arizona. With charmingly peaceful rooms and pleasantly designed grounds, the Renewal Center is a place that focuses both on reflection and wellness. We will be holding all of our sessions and meetings at the Renewal Center. Because this venue is not a hotel, those who wish to stay here will need to secure their room as part of the Gathering registration process. You can read more about this lovely venue on the Gathering Lodging page.
