For our new community, we are encouraging people to do a heartfelt intro – modeled after the way our Burning Man camp does it. Answer WHO you are, not just WHAT you do. Here is what I posted.

My name is Halcyon.
I used to want to be famous. Now I want to spread Love.
More and more my life has become about being of service. This is a much more complicated path than simply working at a soup kitchen. To me, it means putting my talents and energy to promote ideals and values greater than myself. For me, those values are Love, Connection, & Harmony.

I believe the world is perfect and our path is less about achievement, and more about appreciation & gratitude. “Float more, steer less.”

I have been going to Burning Man for 14 years and it plays a huge part in my life.
I’ve hosted a weekly online video show about Love for 10 years. For 3 of those years, I co-hosted with my retired minister grandfather. That chapter with him was also hugely influential on me.

I’ve worked for the last 15 years on the Internet – using my passion for digital intimacy to start small companies and consult for massive ones.

I took depression medication for over 10 years, but finally got off it 2 years ago. I’m now happier than I’ve ever been. I attribute my change in brain chemistry to a spiritual practice of positive thinking and refocussing towards service. So much of what is important to me is hard to express in words – but that doesn’t stop me from talking about it ALOT. Be wary about giving me a microphone. 😛 (Me spewing my views on the universe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1SRXbJJJj4)

I believe that being vulnerable and supporting others as they do the same is supremely important. I believe there is nothing more beautiful than our raw, honest selves. I believe this community can be an important tool for self-growth and global healing.

I know this adventure will be amazing…and I’m honored to share it with you.
