Thinking About Sunstone Symposium
I’m contemplating attending the Sunstone Symposium this year. It’s August 6-9th at the Sheraton Salt Lake City. Jana and Caroline recommended it to me, so I’ve been doing a little research. The theme this year is “The Spirituality of the Rising Generation.” I don’t have any experience with Sunstone, the publication or the blog, so I was pleasantly surprised when I recieved a prompt email response to a question I left on their blog. Rory Swenson, member of the Board of Trustees, gave me details of the event and described the symposium as a “good opportunity to meet a varied and interesting group.”
As a bonus, my husband seems relatively interested in going, which surprises me a bit. Perhaps it would be nice for us to do something like this together. So, I’m using this post a little selfishly, to find out about other people’s experiences with Sunstone Symposia.
If you’ve gone, what’s it like? Did you enjoy it? Have you gone back? What speakers or presenters would you recommend? Do you stay for the entire event, including the Banquet? Will I meet people from the bloggernacle? What expectations should I have in going? Is there a lot of change in attendees from year to year, or is it the same core group? Are you going this year?
If you haven’t gone, have you considered it? Why or why not?
Thanks in advance for your comments and reviews.
