Welcome to Northfield: a community continuously redefining itself. We honor the diversity of human experience; we respect the gifts of our elders; we look with joy to the future through our children; and we continually seek to affirm life creatively and thoughtfully.
This is a week long annual event in June on a beautiful campus in Gill, Massachusetts, during which we devote ourselves to growth – personal, spiritual, social, and communal. There is time to learn, to question, to doubt, to affirm, to explore what gives our lives meaning and depth.
According to Wikipedia, to be multi-faith is to feel an affinity with aspects of more than one religion, philosophy or world-view, and to believe that no one is superior to the others. Our goal is to enable people of all ages and backgrounds to experience their fullest selves in the midst of a loving, supportive and nurturing community.
Essential to our community is the participation of each and every member of the Conference. Each year we learn anew to care for ourselves and each other through sharing our gifts, appreciating the uniqueness of others, and striving to recognize and accommodate the needs of all. In this way, all Northfielders share in the responsibility for the success of the Conference.
It is our hope that this intentional week provides an opportunity to be challenged, to celebrate our differences, to honor who we are and who we can become. The week-long conference welcomes individuals, couples, and families, and offers a variety of activities for people of every age group including:
- Sports and recreation
- Singing and dancing
- Community gatherings
- Enjoying the company of friends
