Recordings from the 2021 Camphill Research Network are now available on the Camphill Research Network website.
The 2021 Camphill Research Symposium continued the virtual format for a second year, enabling presenters and participants from around the world to join. The six consecutive sessions included a wide range of research modalities and themes: exploring how international partnerships between emerging and established communities unfold, life story research in Camphill, the future of inclusive research in Camphill, and new insights into cherished spiritual and contemplative resources. The event also featured two engaging workshops, wherein participants worked together to develop research studies on Camphill communities’ experience with COVID internationally and the impact and experience of short-term volunteers in Camphill communities.
The 2021 Camphill Research Symposium has stimulated ongoing collaboration between Camphill communities internationally via the Camphill Research Network as well as a means to begin understanding the issues facing communities today through research studies. The Camphill Correspondence and the Karl Konig Institute presented this year, highlighting the ability of this forum to connect and showcase a variety of Camphill impulses and partners. As the second year of partnership with the International Camphill Movement Group, the Camphill Research Symposium has become internationally recognized as an essential forum for the movement as a whole, and we are looking forward to furthering collaboration in this year’s Symposium, November 10-11, 2022.
