A new season is upon us
If there’s one thing that 2020 has brought to life, it’s that connection is sacred. The events of the past few months have, in an unexpected way, paved the path for more intentional interaction. It’s offered an opportunity to experiment, to get creative, and to ask ourselves: have we just been going through the motions all this time? And as we move forward past the initial phases of pandemic lockdown and start introducing more social time again, is it time to do so differently, more intentionally?
“If we are willing to bring to the time of Covid-19 a level of intention that we too rarely visit upon our regular gatherings, this heavy time could be leavened by the new rituals it created, the unlikely intimacies it fostered and the ways in which it revealed that convening people is a special privilege that ought never to be taken for granted.”
– Priya Parker, author of “The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters.”
It doesn’t need to be complicated.
Now, as we adapt to new forms of social interaction, we have the opportunity to choose a more deliberate type of connection; one that goes deeper, that challenges us, or maybe that grows us. The purpose of On the Table is to give you a platform to connect around a topic that truly matters to you, but how this looks is completely up to you. Craving some face to face time? Host a few people on an outdoor patio. Love being outside? Organize a physically distanced walk or hike locally. Want to bring together a whole host of thought leaders from local organizations in the same industry as your own over a digital summit type conversation? You can do that too! As long as it complies with local health regulations in whichever way they may come to look in the fall, your imagination is the limit.
