01 / Gains in the eyes of community

“Ichi-go ichi-e. The master told me it roughly translates to ‘one meeting, one moment in your life that will never happen again.’ She explained further: ‘We could meet again, but you have to praise this moment because in one year, we’ll have a new experience, and we will be different people and will be bringing new experiences with us, because we are also changed.’

― Priya Parker, The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters

I was reminded of the importance of gathering with purpose when we kicked off our first cohort of Creative Intimacy sessions in the last two weeks.

Our purpose:

To be in the practice of creativity together in ways that allow us to explore our inner world.

To grow our willingness and capacity to look within ourselves.

To feel the ability to share our whole, beautifully unfinished selves with strangers that potentially become creative colleagues in life and art.

To cultivate our compassion and our power.

Our purpose creates the gaps in which we can experiment, show up different than we have ever been before and be met with the fresh, curious eyes of community.

And seeing how we grow from there.

oceans of love,

The Imagination Times is an exploratory digest centering creativity, relationships, psychospirituality and self leadership. I'm happy you're here. Let's create and grow together.
