Exhibitors and Sponsors

Event has concluded.

Would you like to connect with hundreds of people involved in spiritual care?

SDI proudly involves sponsors and exhibitors as a mutually beneficial program of our educational events. Become an exhibitor or sponsor at Emerging Wisdom to experience the triple benefits of your participation:

1. You reach a unique group of people in a friendly and beautiful setting.
2. You help participants find resources to aid them in their ministry, service, and self-care.
3. You allow SDI to make educational events more affordable by contributing to the financial stewardship of the global learning community.

Thank you for your involvement!
