Caroline Kenner to retire from Sacred Space conference

HUNT VALLEY, Md. –When the doors are opened for this year’s Sacred Space conference on the ides of March, it will be the last time Caroline Kenner attends the opening ritual as a board member. Kenner helped relaunch and re-imagine the conference after it spent time in “dry dock” last decade, and she is the last of that group to remain involved. Her retirement quietly closes a chapter for the Sacred Space Foundation, the nonprofit through which the conference is organized, but her presence will remain: all but one of the remaining board members have been her students. There is a long tradition of esoteric gatherings in the shadow of the nation’s capital.
