Full disclosure: I think you have a purpose.
Wait, wait, now. Hear me out. Maybe you hate that word. It’s become synonymous with rainbow puppies, and bacon butterflies. All frosting and no cupcake. I think intuitively we know it can’t be all about dreams, and stars, and affirming your way to happiness. Because sisters get cancer. Dogs die. Fools get elected President. Climate change. Everything can start to feel like it’s falling apart. And so we become cynics, because ice cream can’t fix everything.
I believe all things are strangely connected; my gift is pattern recognition. And I think there’s a middle ground—a creative solution to the particular puzzle you’re up against. Many times we just don’t have the bandwidth for diving headfirst into our subconscious inner turmoil. If Wikipedia and WebMD can’t clear it up, we just accept our miserable lot and return to binge-watching Game of Thrones.
DRINKS* | WHY IT EXISTS
That’s why I created DRINKS*. I kept running into friends who were vaguely interested in the unusual, strangely freeing ideas I’d been studying: health, self worth, purpose and meaning, quantum physics. Funnily enough, they didn’t have eighteen to forty-eight hours to commit to diligent research. I started suggesting they half-ass it, just commit a little bit and let me do the heavy lifting***. Through hundreds of conversations, I found people wondering about the same things:
How to build their confidence and get good at receiving rejections
How to imbue purpose and meaning into their lives
What to do when they are overwhelmed
What it means to be a genius, and how to find theirs
How to keep going when giving up seems like a viable alternative
How to find work they enjoy or fall back in love with the work they’re already doing
How to map the plot of their lives, and the myth of separateness
So, I started doing these hour-long sessions—soul excavations wherein we just talk. About everything. We went as deep as they wanted to go. I asked a few questions, we processed the answers, then a few more questions. Together we’d look at some of the patterns I had observed, and very, very often, they would walk away with an incredible new sense of clarity. After watching this happen probably 100 times, I decided it’s officially A Thing I Do. See, I’m good with patterns.
DRINKS* | DETAILS AND WHATNOT
The cost is $99. That includes:
A Skype session + an audio recording of the call
A pre-quizlet designed to help guide the session
Have you, maybe subconsciously, been looking for some type of guide to help you connect the dots of all the seemingly random pieces of your life? Someone who sees creativity as a powerful tool that can be used to remake our societies and ourselves? Curious, but want confirmation that it’s a good fit? Email me, and we can set up a free 30 minute Meet-Cute session via Skype where we’ll dive into your most pressing problem.
Let’s have DRINKS*.
* Deductive Rambling and Introspection for Kindred Spirits; I won’t actually be imbibing during a session. But I’m not saying you can’t.
** Although, I do have a bachelor’s in sociology and am working toward my master’s in social work. I also parent a five-year-old teenager, an actual teenager, and one very anxious puppy.
*** TBH, I can’t actually do the heavy lifting *for* you. That’s not how these things work, really. But I can come alongside you and help you carry the daggone thing and even take a few steps with it by myself so that you can step away and see it with a fresh perspective.
