Rachel Lark’s Guide To Throwing Just The Absolute Best F*&#ing Parties


Parties are essential to a healthy community. At minimum, they help us bond and bring us joy. But a well-thrown party can do much more than that. At their best, great parties can help people become their most aspirational versions of themselves, give them the fuel they need to show up more fully in other parts of their lives, and actually unlock unforeseen growth.

Yet many people feel intimidated or stressed by the prospect of throwing parties, so we have far fewer of them than we should.

In this interactive workshop I'll cover my philosophy of partying, and how I think of party-planning as an artistic and healing practice. You'll learn practical tips like how to be realistic about what's possible, how to throw parties with no money, the key elements of the physical space that matter most, how to write a GREAT info e-mail, and how to turn asking for help into a call for collaborators.

Then we'll have time to do individual work with prompts, setting you up to plan your next rager, soiree, dinner party, picnic, immersive festival, or birthday party.

At the end of this workshop everyone will have a plan for the next party they're going to throw!
