I was buying a house and went to Bill's workshop. The art part was scary, but it turned out to be transformative. Just one example - in one exercise, Bill asked us to draw our most nurturing childhood memories. I drew a blank worrying about the drawing part. Bill encouraged me to quiet my mind and let my feelings come (his calming presence and the poems really helped here).
 
I instinctively drew an orange fire, which reminded me of when I was around six and tending the fire on which my grandmother cooked (she had a wood burning stove).  Around the fire, I drew other feelings I wanted to feel in my home. Staring at the orange fire, I realized that cooking is central to what I wanted in a nurturing home for my family. Before this, I have always considered cooking "housework" best avoided. Now I enjoy cooking much more and recently bought a townhouse with a more substantial kitchen.

I began the workshop feeling a lot of fear and finished the day knowing great things are in store for me. Bill's gentle presence and inquiry during the workshop both encouraged me to dive deeper into myself and offered me the container to do so. I have been on a journey of self-discovery for many years, sometimes in extreme fashion, and I am gratefully surprised to have rediscovered a part of myself so sweetly and simply in the process Bill offers. I recommend this for anyone seeking to know themselves more deeply including who they are and what they want to be and create in their lives.

The poetics and the attempt to get to people's underlying assumptions and life and how they live; it is powerful and potentially game-changing.

For architecture, the questions of what do we need to feel joy and contribute to the planet seem most critical. I believe Bill challenges architects to ask very difficult questions of themselves in this book.
