Speaker Line Up

Coming soon!

This annual event is sponsored by the GCSS and takes place each fall on various chiropractic college campuses. The purpose of the Meeting of the Minds is to create a forum for a serious discussion about specific aspects of the Gonstead System. Each year the meeting has a different topic with guest presenters, speakers, panels, and research updates. The formal meeting convenes Saturday through Sunday, with several doctor/student activities scheduled on Friday afternoon and evening.

CE Credits
Up to 12 hours of CE are available in select states with your attendance at MoM for re-licensing. (Verify your state’s eligibility with GCSS)

Who Can Attend
The Meeting of the Minds is an opportunity to learn from many of the Gonstead system’s most accomplished doctors and other experts. Because it is a participatory event, MoM is open to GCSS Fellows, Diplomates, Diplomate-candidates, and Gonstead chiropractors who have been in practice at least 20 years. However, if you have between 10 and 19 years in practice and are not yet a Gonstead Diplomate you may attend Meeting of the Minds ONE time. Attendance at future meetings requires a Diplomate Application.  Membership with the GCSS is not a pre-requisite. For more information, contact GCSS.

Register now for this great weekend or by E-mailing, or by telephone. Domestic callers use the toll free 888-556-4277. International callers should call 831-476-1873.

Friday Night Free Student-Masters Workshop
The traditional and popular GCSS workshop begins at 5:00 pm on Friday. Doctors will share their years of expertise with students—the next generation—and local chiropractors honing their skills. Everyone is invited to attend this complementary workshop and Pizza Party that follows.

Diplomate Program
There will be No Diplomate testing at MoM. Testing will take place during the Gonstead Extravaganza weekend.  Pre-arrangements for testing are required.

Every year, doctors from several generations attend and teach while students become sponge-like absorbing all the great Gonstead class offerings. Unlike other seminars, attendees pick and choose which classes to attend. Moving from one class to the next or repeating a particular subject puts you in control of your learning.

Mark your calendars now and plan to attend this outstanding event. We dare say it is one of the best Gonstead gatherings each year. Half of all proceeds from the Extravaganza go directly to the research fund. The GCSS Board of Directors donate their time and talents for this event paying their own travel and lodging expenses.

There will be Diplomate testing on Friday & Saturday. Today is the perfect day to put your Diplomate Application Packet in order and submit it to the home office. Additional information about the program is available on Diplomate page on this site. Should you have questions or need assistance with your application, simply email All applications and materials must be received by the home office 30 days prior to the test date.
