Group Poetry. You need a group of people. Someone writes a line of poetry in a notebook and then passes it to the next person who writes a line and so on and so forth until everyone has written one. It’s a beautiful collaborative experience that brings people together and creates a group chemistry.

Sarah

 

A book called “Egypt: Then and Now” A book of pictures that shows how sites used to look way back in history, and then you flip the page and it shows how it looks today. She loves how much information it gives and it shows multiple places she was able to visit on her recent trip. Her golden nugget is this book but also having little trinkets or something to remember places you’ve been.

Evan 

Jeremy Heimans and his book called New Power. Evan listened to him speak recently and he felt so inspired by his old power versus new power and old values versus new values, and how we can take those principles and bring them into creativity. Old power is based in currency and new power is based in current. You can’t accumulate current, but it’s what you can do with it, how you can bring other people into it.

EJ Hill

 

When he’s really looking to ground himself again, start a new project or just reaffirm, it’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The album hits all of the right notes. It feels like a gospel text to him. If he never had to listen to anything else other than that, he’d be fine.
