The 8th International SLaM Conference

The 8th International Conference is now over, but the feedback from participants has been heart-warming. The conference took on the theme of “wisdom at work” both in terms of the content of the talks and workshops and in terms of the process of the conference itself. In planning the conference, the organising group wanted people to enter into the experience deeply, in a way that would allow the wisdom of the moment to arise. But planning can’t ensure that such a thing will happen….

What many attendees have told us is that the experience for them was wonderful. And the particular things they pointed to covered every aspect of the conference. Here are some of the things they expressed as being highlights for them:

  • the opening and closing ceremonies – meaningful, fun, richness
  • the keynote addresses (Alan Briskin, Steve Taylor, Margot Cairnes, Alison Yiangou) all praised – “excellent”
  • connecting with like-minded people
  • feeling grounded, relaxed and happy
  • good mix of embodied and “em-brained” activities
  • the flow and alchemy of events
  • meeting people, opportunities for informal professional connection
  • the play (“Blasphemy and Doubt”) and the discussion afterwards
  • the community forums
  • the panel sessions
  • mask-making and the entertainment evening
  • the breadth and depth of the program
  • emergent moments of enacted wisdom
  • the light of wisdom shining in revealing moments
  • the excellent keynote presenters and the way they were part of the whole conference

Things to Consider When Buying Dog Beds Online

Things to Consider When Buying Dog Beds Online

Buying dog beds online is extremely simple. If a person has access to a search engine, finding dog beds online to purchase should often take seconds or minutes, literally. If Fido’s loving owner is searching for a bed that’s ideal for his specific needs, he should use a search engine to find one that satisfies everything. Dog beds online, just like those available in brick and mortar stores, are extremely varied and diverse. Some of them are high-end and rather costly. Others are more budget-friendly. Some of them are somewhere in the middle, too. 

They also vary in design and appearance. Dog beds online from can be rather minimalist and basic in appearance, with solid colors and simple designs such as stripes and polka dots. They can also feature more complex designs, whether floral prints, cartoon characters or anything else. If Fido’s favourite person is trying to track down dog beds online that are fun and joyous in style, then he may try to look for pet supply retailers that have those types of products in stock.

People who buy dog beds online also usually have to think about cost. Pet beds can be extremely affordable. At the other end of the spectrum, they can also sometimes be rather pricey. Prices for pet beds generally depend on things such as material and size. If a pet bed is particularly large and made of a fine and durable material, then it may cost significantly more than one that’s smaller and made of a material that isn’t quite as strong.

Since pets tend to spend a lot of time lounging around and sleeping, it’s crucial for their owners to take their beds seriously. The objective isn’t to find the cheapest or most popular pet bed, but rather to find one that’s both comfortable and sturdy.
