FAQ

What is Northwest Pilgrims?

Northwest Pilgrims is an annual gathering of women who are interested in the intersection of women and Mormonism.  We come together from around the Pacific Northwest (and beyond), from all levels of orthodoxy, activity, and belief to share in a safe space.  NW Pilgrims is dedicated to learning, growing together, and giving each one of us a voice and a place to be heard.

 

What is included with registration?

1) All conference sessions and activities

2) Lodging for Friday and Saturday nights (unless you select 'No Lodging' or 'Saturday Only' packages)

3) Breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and Breakfast and lunch on Sunday ('Saturday Only' includes lunch and dinner on Saturday).



What should I bring to the retreat?

1) Clothing and toiletries (the conference center will provide towels, soap, linens, and bedding). Dress for all sessions is comfortable casual. The Seabeck Center is surrounded by lovely grounds, so bring shoes and clothing that will allow you to enjoy them.

2) Be prepared to introduce yourself with a 60 second answer to the question, "What energizes you right now?"

3) Your sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and love for all of your sisters.
