What is S. P. A. C. E.?
A VIRTUAL, closed conversation that’s DK:N and focuses on starting where you are to get to ‘better.’
In other words, S. P. A. C. E. is a journal by and for members, on how to ‘N+1.’
A new conversation every week. Starts on Tuesday 7AM USEST.
Who is it for?
Is this you? Please continue.
Why there’s S. P. A. C. E.
THIS IS WHY. Too much ‘news’ is pandering to the lowest common denominator. Too much ‘infotainment’ is beating people into fear and consumption and subjectivity. When you step up and away from it all for a while, it becomes obvious that this is sucking the life from our veins and killing the heart of our human ingenuity. Modern knowledge workers are numbed. Drugged. And terribly bored.
Would you like fewer junk reads and more of the kind that challenges your mind in new directions? Perhaps even directions of growth, learning, and motivation? In other words, would you like less of whatever is clickbait today and more discernment, more aesthetic attention, and, oh, I’ll just say it, care in the existence of you as a real person and not just another wallet?
ARE YOU, like us, more inspired by three hours of fascinating dialogue with someone you just met or haven’t seen in ages than, say, a television sitcom? If so, please step forward. Please tell us you exist. We want to know you. Read some of what we’re sharing so far here.
Even if it’s true about what Huxley said, ie that the truth’s being buried in a sea of irrelevance—even if it’s true, well, there is still S. P. A. C. E., and you have found it.
Engage the heart, mind
ELEANOR ROOSEVELT SAID IT: ‘You must do the thing you think you cannot do.’
People want challenges.
They want to be pushed to try new things.
To make space for, say, art, or writing. Or to find better quality relationships. They want to be inspired to work better, not harder.
Achievement-oriented people want challenges.
We’ve got challenges.
TWENTY YEARS’ real-life conversations with people in Europe, Asia, both US Coasts. Some were friends. Some were clients who showed us how to become sharper by making space for more thinking together, clearer dialogue, ‘N+1’ results. (See testimonials at the bottom of this page). Recommended books, gave us wine. Loved us as true friends, in moments, and moments collected are all we really have. In Seattle. Durham NC, southwest Ireland’s County Cork. Amritsar, Chiang Mai. Gangtok. And now here in Phnom Penh. Growth. Change. Discovery. Engaging with new questions, making more friends. Organically. Linking them. More conversations. International. Local. Multilingual. Inspirational.
Now we are in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh, seizing the moment away from old mores to reinterpret our learnings, and bring you the highlights.
