Invitation from Happy Teachers, Happy Students: Join Us at the

International Conference of Creativity, Thinking & Education

Saturday-Sunday May 3 – 4, 2014
Congress Plaza Hotel, Chicago, IL
Keynote Speakers: T.A. Barron & Sharon Promislow

As the season changes and the leaves are turning shimmering gold and red we feel the stirring of new energy flowing though Nature and our very souls. In accordance with this quickening of energy we would like to announce a new annual conference — The International Conference of Creativity, Thinking & Education. This conference will happen May 3th & 4th, 2014 at the Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. The mission of this conference is to allow educators to explore horizons on the cutting edge of creativity, brain-based education and techniques to relieve stress in the classroom for both teachers and students.

We are thrilled to have T.A. Barron and Sharon Promislow as our keynote speakers. T.A. Barron, the highly acclaimed author of the Merlin Saga, The Great Tree of Avalon series and now the beginning of a new series Atlantis Rising is an amazing and inspirational speaker. His first book in the Merlin series is being made into a movie with George Lucas and Warner Brothers. His keynote The Magic of Creativity discusses the wondrous power of words. He believes that through stories, we can create new worlds, find lasting inspiration and reach across boundaries of all kinds.

Sharon Promislow, author of the international best seller Making The Brain Body Connection provides a bridge between the latest in stress, learning and brain research. Her presentation is full of hands-on practical and easy techniques to re-educate the body and central nervous system to switch on the whole brain / body for higher energy, increased coherence and to release old, less-effective coping strategies. She promises that you will come away with a model to transform your personal and classroom effectiveness with simple activities for improving seeing, hearing, writing, learning, memory and focus.

We look forward to seeing you next May! For more information on our speakers or the conference or to contact Synchronicity Publishing LLC, please visit
