It’s a special year for the Gay Coaches Conference. In the spirit of inclusion, the 2019 Gay Coaches Conference theme is “Everyone’s A Coach: Bringing More Coaching to All Professions.” The conference is open to gay coaches – whether you’re a coach in training, a practicing coach, credentialed coach, or master coach. It’s also open to gay men who want to explore coaching and include it in their profession. In the past two years, we’ve welcomed therapists, psychologists, social workers, congregational ministers, and many others to the Gay Coaches Conference who are adding or incorporating coaching to their profession. This year, we welcome you to join us and include coaching in the great work that you lead! We’ve added an intention for this year’s conference, too. An intention is a lens or perspective through which we can experience coaching anew. It’s a frame to put around the conference sessions and the knowledge, skills, and experiences you will have at the conference. This year’s intention is about revitalizing your practice. It’s about changing things up, giving your approach a revitalizing lift, and taking a new perspective. So, please join us this year – as a presenter and/or participant. Bring more coaching to all professions and revitalize your work as a coach at the Gay Coaches Conference, May 2-5, 2019 at Easton Mountain!
We are also offering a Pre-Conference on May 1st:

It was so wonderful to be in such a beautiful mountain setting with the community. The opportunity to have intellectually stimulating conversations with a variety of men of all shapes, colors, and ages in a beautiful rustic face-to-face setting was spiritually enlightening and a welcomed change ... The majestic 170 acre setting was bursting with wildlife and it is actually on the top of a beautiful mountain with two ponds (one has a water-fountain), a big new swimming pool, and one really large wood-fired sauna along with a huge hot-tub too... I hated to leave and I can’t wait to get back!

Menu/CuisineMeals are provided three times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available. We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
