This week’s guest is Priya Parker, a master-facilitator and the founder of Thrive Labs where she helps activists, elected officials, corporate executives, educators and philanthropists create transformative gatherings. Priya is also the author of The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters, which really dives into how to create gatherings, in all types of contexts, that meaningfully connect people.

This conversation is all about how to infuse intention and connection into those gathering opportunities. Priya talks about the idea of code switching, what that does at an individual level and how it led her to group conflict resolution.

She also talks about how self-care is relational, and how we can host or guest gatherings in ways that foster self-care with some tactical tips and questions to reflect on.

Priya and Robyn also talk about the idea of a spiral supper, encouraging listeners to participate as a virtual community.
