The Soliton Sessions Are Back! (With a new name)

August 30, 2012

Sideways Sessions, formerly the Soliton Sessions

The Gathering Formerly Known As the Soliton Sessions

Nine years ago, I drove myself to Ventura, California for the first of the Soliton Sessions. I went at the invitation of an online friend I’d never met. I didn’t know what to expect.

It saved my faith.

The Sessions became an annual pilgrimage for me. I’d never experienced a “conference” that was really centered more on community, conversation, and opening to divine imagination. As I wrote for the Next-Wave e-zine, “It wasn’t so much a conference as a reunion of a family I never knew I had.”

The Soliton Sessions are dead. Long live the Sideways Sessions!

After a hiatus of a several years, I’m excited to learn that the Sessions are back! The name has changed to the Sideways Sessions, and the location has changed to Portland, Oregon. And I’m bummed that I can’t make it. …But maybe you can!

As with previous gatherings, the Sideways Sessions limit the number of people involved in order to promote conversation. I know it’s only two weeks away, but… pray about it. Does God want you there?

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
