1 Million Cups: Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center
November 8 from 8:45 am to 10:00 am
Franciscan Eco-spirituality and Conference Center located on 72 acres of woods and prairie in Hiawatha. Prairiewoods offers retreats and programs that focus on holistic health, ecology and spiritual growth. Prairiewoods also hosts 100s of organizations each year for trainings and meetings.
Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center is developing a program called Sabbatical in Everyday Life. It is an affordable and transformative option for individuals who cannot afford to take extended leave – or for businesses who would like to support their valued employees but may not be able to offer extended paid leave. Prairiewoods is seeking honest feedback on their program, barriers people may experience, desired services, timing, cost etc.

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!
The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Join us on Wednesdays @ 8:45 a.m. at the Geonetric Cafe. Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.
We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
