Sidewalk Oracles

Sidewalk Oracles: The Non-Book-Club Book Club

Wednesdays, 5:30pm Eastern | June 14, 2017; June 28 - August 23, 2017

This is the non-copy copy for the non-book-club book club.

I am going to be taking a break from self-help this summer to play with synchronicity and everyday magic. Want to join me?

Warning: there will be no formal class outlines. There will be no earnest soul searching coach-y deep dives.

There will be recordings... because people seem to like them.

There will also be levity and laughter and game playing.

And there will definitely be irreverence.

This will be like a weekly standing playdate, so if you have to miss a few for summer shenanigans, you'll be welcome back with open arms—or ears, as the case. may be—when you return. (In fact, I hope you miss a few if you are going to be out in the world playing. please come back and tell us about the magic you find there!)

Because a little bit of structure makes it easier for everyone, we will be using the games in the book "Sidewalk Oracles - Playing with Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicity in Everyday Life" by Robert Moss as a starting point. However, we might then feel compelled to make up some of our own. Who knows? Let’s see where the magic leads us…

About Our Non-book-club Book Club

There will be an intro call on June 14th at 5:30 pm ET to prime our proverbial pumps for a summer of magic making.

We will then meet in our virtual sandbox for an hour of checking in, story sharing, and gentle magic-block removal (if needed) each Wednesday at 5:30 pm ET beginning on June 28th through August 23rd. Come when you can and share when you feel inspired.

There will also be a private Facebook group to share pictures of things to prove that you experienced the magic. (Not that we require proof. We believe you. Pictures and songs are just fun and add extra oomph to the punchline of a good synchronicity story.)

Before We Begin...

You don't actually have to do a damn thing to join us and play. It is summer, after all. This isn't about adding things to potentially over-committed, school-is-out schedules.


If reading about synchronicity and the various games we will be playing sounds like fun, have a copy of "Sidewalk Oracles" on hand. It is a refreshingly light read and you'll have the game descriptions at the ready.

That is, of course, if playing with shelf elves, chancing an encounter, walking a dream, or keeping a secret book sound at all appealing.

If you're the type that wants a plan, read through page 82 before the first call.

Here's a glance at some book text, to whet your appetite:

"We are embarking on a path of real magic."

"When we pay attention, we find that we are given signs by the world around us every day."

"If you can avoid type A personality disorder and are not allergic to surprises, you may find things and people coming together in unusual ways, giving you, at least, the gift of a fresh story."

"Adventures are more fun than explanations, and a story is our easiest way to get to the truth of a matter and to carry that truth."

Pretty enticing, no?
