We are excited to offer course participants a free copy of the book The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters – By Priya Parker. She writes: "I believe anyone has the ability to gather well...Gatherings crackle and flourish when real thought goes into them and when the host has the curiosity, willingness and generosity of spirit to try."
