Thank you for your interest in leading a program at La Casa de Maria. We appreciate you taking the time to fill out our Proposal Form. We have a very limited number of public program spaces available each year.
We are especially interested in presenters with a strong experiential teaching history, a solid educational background in the field being taught, and successful books or other products. Additionally, we are looking for presenters who are able to demonstrate their ability to market themselves successfully through a variety of methods (such as websites, mailing lists, and studios) and have followers in the southern California or San Francisco Bay areas. During our review process, we pay particular attention to the strength of the program’s foundation, the presenter’s relevant background information, and the presenter’s capacity to promote their work successfully. We encourage you to submit books, articles, and other materials that will help us understand your work experience and program offerings.
Please be patient while we process your program proposal. We consider proposals year-round. Due to the limited number of program slots we are booking for our two newsletter periods (Sept-Feb and Mar-Aug), if selected, it could take a year or more for your workshop to be scheduled. We receive far more program proposal ideas than we have space for in our calendar of programs, and cannot respond to inquiries regarding the status of your proposal submission. However, you will receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of your proposal. We will contact you if we are interested in discussing your program further. If we decide not to run your program, we will contact you with that decision. In the time between the confirmation of our receipt of your proposal and the final decision, please do not call or write to La Casa.
You may download the Program Proposal form below. Once completed, please send your proposal and supporting materials either via e-mail to [email protected] or via standard mail to the address below.
