These days, all I wanna do is hang out with people.
I want to co-work with friends and make them highly-caffeinated chai.
I want to take meandering walks with my love and our pup, crunching over fiery-colored leaves.
I want to be there for people when they’re crying, and try to be vulnerable enough to let them be there for me, too.
Desire is serious business.
I take these sorts of irrepressible desires very seriously.
I consider them the blinking lights coaxing me (and you, of course) closer to my sacredest and most essential self.
When I ignore them, I get stuck. Very stuck, indeed.
And so when I remember to heed them, I do.
The wonderful thing about my current enthusiasm for spending quality time with others is that I’m realizing how many of us feel this way.
We want to gather with others who care about connection.
We want to feel accepted and heard and understood.
We want to meditate together and write together and talk to one another.
And we want all of this so. very. much.
An in-person gathering in Seattle.
Thanks to my highly scientific findings, I’m starting a meditation/journaling/sharing group here in Seattle. You can find all the details right over here.
I know that, because of the location, those of you who are far away won’t be able to join us.
But! Those of you who are in town or are visiting are so totally invited to the (introspective) party.
We’ll be having our first session next Tuesday, and continuing for three Tuesdays after that. I would love to see you there. If you can make it, please register through Meetup so I know you’re coming, and feel free to invite friends.
Whether you can make it or not, I want to know:
What is your most irrepressible desire?
It matters so deeply and fully and completely.
And it will not be ignored.
