Natalie Goldberg's Friday Dinner Address


I feel so lucky because not only did I get to hear Natalie Goldberg speak, I got to hear her speak twice in one day.

Goldberg is author of Writing Down the Bones (1986)—a book that “met American exactly where it was” at the time. She is a Zen follower, and an absolutely fabulous speaker.

Her book has sold more than a million and a half copies. Rich said during his introduction that Goldberg“…has a remarkable gift for making you feel that there is something unique and profoundly valuable inside you.” I completely agree—I feel wonderful after hearing both of her presentations!

Goldberg's stories were striking, but it was such an experience because she is so real, adding humor to every thought, and making her speech very relatable.

For example, she thanked all of their therapists for their hard work, saying that she can only imagine what it is like to be “on that side of the couch” but she pictures it to be similar to a Zen experience.

I left her dinner presentation feeling satiated-not just from the delicious filet mignon and delectable dessert-but from a feeling of inspiration that’s overwhelming even as I write this now.
