Nate & Amber Butler recently shared from takeaways from their reading Amanda Palmer’s “The Art of Asking” as part of our online Thunder Talk series.  These are monthly calls where you can gather to hear new ideas and discuss them together. The goal is to move us towards creative, relational and spiritual growth.

Amanda Palmer is an independent artist who started her career as one-half of the quirky Boston based duo, Dresden Dolls, which was an out and out DIY effort. She gave a widely popular TED talk on the same title “The Art of Asking,” which eventually led to her sharing on this topic more deeply by writing the book.

Themes from the evening include the importance of vulnerability in community, the struggle to ask for help and importance to ask open-handed, with no strings attached.

We are excited to share the recording of that evening with you here.  Listen in!
