Our focus is in-person activities & projects, not
internet presence; but soon we hope to have more volunteers & staff to not only update pages with all we're doing & planning, but make it more user friendly, & include an unusual new
local & global online network we've created.
There is a Hidden Landscape All Around You...
SEEK WHAT MOVES YOU
& Find Others to MEET YOU THERE!
…The REST Of The STORY:
~ WHY close your book & END YOUR STORIES
with ‘HAPPILY EVER AFTER’?... Why do books end there?...
Ever WONDERED what
happens in THAT PART OF THE STORY?
TAKE PART IN IT!
~Don`t live your Life experiencing Only a Part of Who You Are & what life offers:
Your Whimsies are Your Treasure Map.
Live like a PIRATE -- Revel in Your Passions
& Recognize their Power to Create & Recreate the World!~
Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only
thing that ever has. --Margaret Mead
Join us in exploring, engaging, celebrating, LIVING--humans’/earth's
/the universes’ potentials, + the
mysteries between & BEYOND…, *NOW* in an
arena which operates in the new frontiers space that exists beyond *unperceived* barriers:
The WHIMSYUM has created 'MEMEstitutes' where people from diverse backgrounds brainstorm & collaborate to identify, then dispense with, unseen barriers in everyday life which suppress natural potential (e.g. not being aware of how our daily habits, or our perceptions &/or acceptance of how to run & structure a city, --affect us). Then,
the MEMEstitues offer new directions thru creating not just new, but new KINDS, --of free & by-donation
community activities, resources, occupations, environments, projects, curriculum, contexts & patterns for living…at our New Directions Centers. Interested in participating?: Click here to read more...
Share who you are & the unique untapped gifts that every individual
brings, in an awesome exhilarating experience of life in this
reciprocative community of spiritual & imaginative activism; for
people who think outside the box who want to challenge, expand, enrich
their & their community's experience & potential:
We’re a free-spirited, extremely imaginative, multi-discipli
multigenerational, interactive, undauntibly upbeat, friendly
philanthropic network of individuals from all walks of life who are
putting their dreams in motion, or are living the life of their dreams
-- supporting each other to make this happen: The
WHIMSYUM is filled with people who are not just talking about, or
planning, to redesign the world to reflect their fantasies—but many have
been living with quite different structures, resources, communities,
lifestyles, etc… for years: We stand behind the knowledge that Everyone
has a unique gift they can enjoy contributing to the world, without struggling
or martyrdom; & that Everyone on this planet deserves to experience a
life filled with magic, comfort, & delight; spending every moment
in mind-body-spirit epiphany: Created when people actually live utilizing their potentials, --& using the continuously evolving knowledge & wisdom we've been gathering for centuries.
New primary colors…

Though as always these games provide fun, new, informal contexts to get to know people w/a bit of playful exercise --today’s games are more focused on laughter, imagination & silliness --than the one’s last month which were focused on exploring personality, or the month before which was solely focused on the body. A variety of goofy games are planned, & anyone is welcome to share their favorites!
Beverage for yourself ( the garden has no water fountain!).
Comfortable, Flexible Clothing
