Hi friends, I’m Shawn. The Guest House is an open-ended inquiry into what it means to be human in an era of radical change. We’re shoring up together for the long haul while distilling wonder, wisdom, and wellbeing from daily life.

All essays are available for free, past and present. Monthly deep dive conversations with folks who inspire me are reserved for paid subscribers. This publication is 100% reader supported. Please consider a paid subscription if you’re able to contribute. Thank you!
