Were you here when @sharonsaysso shared about us? It was the start of amazing things here at Gather! The week she shared, we released an episode called “10 Ways to Become an Everyday Host” and it quickly became our most downloaded episode to date. As years have gone by, we wanted to bring the conversation back to the surface because it is more important now than ever!
In culture, we are often told narratives that gathering is for a select few, with a certain income, certain skill set, and steady friend group. What if that wasn’t true? What if the key to gathering is something entirely different? Through my own rewriting, and listening to many of you, I have curated a list of unconventional ways to be an everyday host. Not just any host, but an intentional one that cultivates meaningful connection.
In this episode we will discuss these 10 key topics:
1: Seeing a need & willingness to go first
2: Willingness to fail
3: Commitment to growth: personally & practically
4: Becoming the designated diffuser & difficult conversation manager
5: Prioritizing ambiance
6: Creating food intentionally
7: Shifting from untouchable to intentional hospitality
8: Creating Systems & Stations
9: Auditing your kitchen
10: Working towards leading with vulnerability and authenticity
See this list as a way to identify where you need to grow, what you do well, and where you need to head next! From there, we would love to support you through blog posts, guides, and workshops found at www.gatherintentionalliving.com.
