The Jasmine Dialogues began in 2008 as a book club to discuss the human adventure and our relationship with our surrounding “more-than-human” phenomena.

Often accompanied by several cups of jasmine tea, these lengthy discussions were designed to share stories committed to exploring the truth, truth of our own misconceived boundaries —┬átales of endurance, artistic edge, spiritual pilgrimage, human rights and environmental activism. Brave explorers of the Mystery and the human potential. We sought literature bleeding authenticity, we inquired more into how genuine reciprocity might be forged within ourselves, with others, and with our external surroundings.

We only got through one book.

Since its dissolution, the name “Jasmine Dialogues” stuck as a reference to this ever-present conversation I continually have with myself, friends, and family — both human and non-human. It’s calls forth a lifelong pursuit of studying and celebrating the shimmy-dance between my own inner ecology and the outer layer I strive to intimately inhabit.

So, I dedicate the Jasmine Dialogues as a digital space to share this journey, this shimmy. Posted will be visceral experiences that shape me, shake me, break me, and make me. I wish to highlight art, edgy people, and places dripping with beauty that help deepen this conversation. The Jasmine Dialogues is committed to such intention. I hope you enjoy and check back often.
