Gather Good

To gather – to come together with others – is a deliciously human act. But the experiences are varied. And many of us are out of practice or still adjusting to how it feels to be together. As we step into the season of gatherings, we invite you to consider what makes a gathering good for you.

Sharon reflects on some of the wildly different gatherings that she has been a part of recently – from her annual-ish Entrepreneur’s Getaway to a Catskills Sister Moon Circle, from¬† a Vision at Work Retreat to a family routine of playing Dragonwood before bed. She shares what each of these gatherings is, what she appreciates about the experience, what surprises her and more. Through cozying up to these experiences, she draws out 5 lessons that she knows will serve her in the intense season of coming together that lies ahead. And she prompts you to set your own intentions for the gatherings in your life.
