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.

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:
a free-spirited, extremely imaginative, multi-disciplinary,
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…
The WHIMSYUM is centered around the practice & wisdom of focusing on positive thoughts & intentions, sharing positive energy & actions. *~
We celebrate friendship, collaboration/cocreation, & leadership from people of any background no matter their: style choices, lifestyle, shape, educational background, financial situation, age, skin color, state of fitness, sexual preferences, spiritual path, behavior preference ( hyper people, quiet people...), etc...

2nd path on the left, walk across the courtyard: We'll be sitting at the picnic tables in the clearing of trees.
Join us for a special presentation, activities & discussion exploring the Myers-Briggs system which provides tools to more deeply understand the intricate facets of our own personalities & the human beings around us. Geoffrey our insightful & incredibly friendly & accepting host today, is the main organizer of the LA/ So Cal Myers-Briggs Community. He especially focuses on hosting gatherings for a specific section of the Myers-Briggs community -- individuals who identify themselves as “NFs”: People who value, & focus on making life decisions in a heart-centered way, --intuitively, by the way they feel inside. Everyone is welcome to come to today’s event, as it’ll be an intro to the whole Myers-Briggs system, & an opportunity to explore your personality & others ( no matter whether you’d think of yourself as an NF or not).
FREE, no donation box put out for this gathering. This is a seated, not an active gathering.
Special event! People will be driving from all over So Cal to attend: Usually Myers-Briggs gatherings are unstructured conversation w/occasionally short intro at beginning, but today Geoffrey leads interactive activities he created especially for the gathering today to more deeply explore the Myers-Briggs system, each other, & have more fun !
Beverage for yourself ( the garden has no water fountain!).
Laptop, Ipad, internet phone if you can for an optional 15 minute activity to do as people are arriving & chatting.

The WHIMSYUM is focused on sponsoring NF communities (like the Interactive Kundalini Yoga community, the Tantra community, the Dances Of Universal Peace community, the AFFIRMassage community, Goddess Dojo, etc…), & creating a space, activities, & resources which support intuitive, heart-centered living; & providing new directions for these communities.
