| The Heart Space Cafe Reinvents Itself:
In 1990, when I purchased an old Victorian house, a handyman
special, I had a vision of renovating this structure into both a living
space and healing space.
My vision for the house included having monthly gatherings
where those of us who lived there could open our doors to the larger
community. The Heart Space Cafe began as a monthly gathering,
where people could come together for good food, good conversation, and
I enjoyed hosting a gathering where people felt emotionally
safe, welcome and able to speak and listen from the heart. However,
over the years, as people's lives got busier, with increasing demands
and decreasing personal time, this face to face forum became more work
to sustain. In time, those of us who lived in the house realized we
were burned out, so the gatherings stopped.
As I have reflected on how to connect with others and stay
connected in this internet age, the idea of establishing a virtual
Heart Space Cafe seemed like a natural evolution. While I have not
explored the world of internet social networking too much, I can't help
but notice the growth of this cultural phenomenon as I read the Wall
St. Journal each day at the gym!
So, over the next few months, with the help of some far more
technosavvy friends and colleagues, I will be designing and birthing
the new Heart Space Cafe on www.heartspacecafe.com. For sure, blog and
forum capability will be built into this new website to facilitate the
exchange of ideas. And some of the questions I receive from people who
have read my books, attended my workshops or simply found me on the
internet can be answered more thoughtfully in a more public place.
I look forward to bringing you a meaningful, interactive
forum through www.heartspacecafe.com, where through both speaking and
listening, you can both enrich and express your heart!
