it was amazing

This is probably going to be a book I revisit; I found the lessons pretty invaluable. It reframed gathering for me- whether for a casual dinner, a work meeting, or an event you're hosting. There's an importance of individuals coming together, whether to enjoy life or to create something, that is often lost because we get so used to the routine of meeting for work or for fun. The Art of Gathering is fresh air that can breathe life back into the experience.

Another thing that I loved about this book is the power it places upon people in general. Depending on how an event is structured, you can really travel to new ideas, intimacies, and self-reflection just by using the people you have in the room in an equipped and intentional manner.

Overall this is accessible and very usable-- I've already started putting some of the things I've learned into practice!
