Welcome to this global gathering and gift economy for collectively navigating the complexity of our times.

Come collaborate to:

  • Support action

  • Weave community

  • Foster healing

  • Unleash generosity

Now What?! is like a fair with tents of all sizes where people from around the world come to explore, experience, talk, and feel into different possibilities of what it is to be fully human in a time of crisis. In community and in our bodies.  On Zoom, via other online platforms, and in person.


Together we explore ancient and modern ways to build and deepen relationships, learn and take action together, and generate a nourishing flow of resources to support ourselves and our work in the world. Since 2019, the gathering and accompanying “gift economy” have been held twice a year.  


Activities are offered by our collective members and organizational partners.  In the “cafés” that take place multiple times each week, you can get oriented to the gathering, have conversations, play games, network, share music, and more.  A set of “engagement streams” focused on different topics and activities fill out much of the calendar as well.  You can find invitations to many of these on our blog


All are welcome!

Now What?! supports personal and collective development for people searching for community and insight in these challenging times...  I am honored to be part of this and grateful that I can participate in a number of ways, all serving different aspects of my own growth as a human being grappling with our massive existential emergency.

People I met through Now What?! gave me encouragement and opportunities to be fully myself.  I found many different approaches to explore possibilities to be more resilient and to participate in a culture of appreciation.  Now What?! is driven by a gift economy---a practice for fair sharing that we can all learn from. 


Discovering Now What?! has gifted me deep connection with people from all walks of life. I’ve felt uplifted by the power that emerges from the safe and open spaces that Now What?! participants create. Together we engage in the co-creation of what feels like a healing field of transformative possibilities.
