Subud Greater Seattle is offering two grants (at least $260 in cash plus free registration, lunch and dinner, and a round-trip bus fare from Mexico City Airport to Puebla) to assist two members to attend the Subud World Congress 2014 in Puebla, Mexico from August 2 – 17, 2014.
Anyone that is a member in the region may apply, but they must show the ability to pay for their lodging (approx. $30/day for 14 days plus airfare which is approximately $700 round trip).
For more information on the congress go to: http://www.subudworldcongress2014.com.
As many of us know, World Congresses are often life changing experiences since we connect with the global nature of Subud and we often deepen our latihan experience. Sharing and doing latihan on a truly global scale with members from now over 50 countries can be a very life changing experience. Plus, connecting with the rich culture of Puebla, Mexico, an ancient colonial city, is also a plus.
If you have not donated to this fund please give a check to Subud PNW-Greater Seattle Center and earmark it World Congress Travel Fund. If we have more funds we can give more grants and assist more to go to congress. Give the funds to Sherwin O’Bar, our Treasurer, or mail to Subud Greater Seattle, 1101 15th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122-4523.
If a member wishes to apply for a grant please email firstname.lastname@example.org and he will send an application form to be filled out by May 20 and the final decision of who gets grants will be made by May 31, 2014. The grant review committee is made up of Marston Gregory, Sherwin O’Bar and Oswald Norton.
