At last week’s HER LA dinner, guest of honor (& master host) @kellybrownejam , founder of @kitchentableapp led us through a moving conversation on what it truly means to gather, cultivate connected community and create memorable and lasting experiences. #HERHighlight ____ Professional purpose in life: Create spaces that bring people together to connect in person around a shared love of a homemade meal. Personal purpose in life: Build a beautiful life, invite others to share it, spread more joy. Best advice you have received: Be kind. People will never forget how you made them feel. Words/motto you live by: Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. Love with your whole heart. Feminism means: Human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights. One message you want women to take away from the evening: Last night was magic. A group of inspiring women gathered around the table to enjoy a homemade meal made by hand with love and care to meet one another, connect with each other, and share a part of ourselves. It was emotional and encouraging and so special. I will always remember it. ____ Photo by: @matthewnevinsbell

And what a magical evening it was. Tucked away in an intimate setting, a mini, tender group of 12 HER LA ladies shared a beautiful meal in a beautiful space. ✨ In collaboration with @kitchentableapp, founder @kellybrownejam opened her home for us to cultivate community, gather, and share memories and current challenges. Thank you to our humble, graceful chef, @aimeerosehunter 👩‍🍳, for the delicious food and roses. 📷 by @elizabethrweinberg

Our favorites one-liners from @priyaparker? “Be present and judge later.” and “Hosting is not the same as cooking.” #HERNYC x @trustinus brought 100 women and men together to deep delve into gathering more intentionally, tears and laughter ensued.

Comment 👇 with what you learned from ‘The Art of Gathering’ workshop with @priyaparker last week. Here are 8 takeaways from the master of intentional gathering herself: ____ 1 Decide why you’re really gathering 2 Close doors 3 Don’t be a chill host 4 Create a temporary alternative world 5 Never start a funeral with logistics 6 Keep your best self out of the gathering 7 Cause good controversy 8 Accept that there is an end

“None of us shows up as a blank slate to anything.” - @priyaparker our GOH for tonight’s @her.usa X @trustinus event exploring her must-read book ‘The Art of Gathering.’ #HERHighlight _____ Professional purpose in life/personal purpose in life: Both are the same: connection for progress. Helping people see each other and be seen -- particularly around lines of difference -- and using that lived knowledge to actively build a better society. Best advice you have received: Read the newspaper everyday. You can't catch up later. Words to live by/motto: "Speak your mind even if your voice shakes.”- Maggie Kuhn One message you want guests to take away from the evening: Gathering others is a form of power and a form of love. Think deeply about why you want to bring people together and don't be stuck to a specific form in your head as to what that has to look like.

New Yorkers: we hear you! It’s been a cold one: adding some much needed warmth and spice to your lives with this #HERHighlight on @sophia_roe as she talks food 🍉🥑🌶= feelings at tonight’s #HERNYC dinner. Read below for a glimpse of her soul— we don’t know about you but this is exactly the kind of message we needed to hear today. _____ Professional purpose in life/Personal purpose in life: My personal and professional purposes in life are deeply tied. Professionally, I want to make myself available as a resource to others, period. In whatever capacity I can, I really just want to be there for people. I want to be a person who people know will always talk about the real stuff, the difficult to swallow stuff, the painful stuff, the real stuff. Best advice you have received: “People can take up space in your heart, without taking up space in your home” —It’s okay to need to love someone from afar. I know the relationship with my mother is deeply entrenched in that quote. I love her, but I also know that I have to build up barriers to keep myself and my home safe. Words/motto you live by: “Time is only real when you’re baking a cake”—This one I probably say to myself all day long, and have for years. There is this idea of RUSHING these days that HAS TO GO! Hemingway said, "I write one page of genius, to 92 pages of shit” GOOD THINGS, AND IMPORTANT THINGS TAKE TIME! One message you want guests to take away from the evening? Remember that food is never the enemy, never to be trickled with guilt, or laden with regret. The connection between food and feelings is rooted deep, and investigating that relationship is how we can grow to further understand ourselves, and even others around us. It’s my hope that conversations such as these..(discussing what gives us joy, why does food feel like poison when it’s what we need to survive, what breaks our hearts about wellness, why do we feel shame about our bodies, etc) can help steer us in the direction of triumph, happiness, and freedom. None of us can do it all alone, and I believe its high time we start TALKING to one another about our FEELINGS!
