Since our inception we’ve read 28 books (now reading number 29); created ‘SEJ Talks’ (think TED Talks with an open bar, followed by a cosmic bazaar); built our flagship ‘Helping Friendly Little Free Library’ in Uptown Dallas; and formed our 501c3 to “Elevate the public conversation and connect people through books in convivial ways.”  

As part of our overall strategy to raise the free public book exchange movement to the level of an art form in three phases, we created the ‘Helping Friendly Book Stand’.  We also buried @thetimewharf during last summer’s Great American Eclipse, which we will unseal the morning of the next Total Solar Eclipse, which happens to pass directly over Dallas on April 8th, 2024.

All this adds up to form a living Idea that is greater than the sum of all its parts.  Helping Friendly is a dynamic community built around the shared ideal of searching for the Secrets to Eternal Joy and Never Ending Splendor together for nearly 5 years now.  Like a seed that was planted, what began as ‘just a book club’ has now grown into a micro cultural ecosystem.

The true value of the Helping Friendly Ecosystem is the creation of a community of individuals bonded together by valuable shared experiences.  We'd love you to join our conscious connected community.

The young are no longer invited to seek the hidden truths, dynamic and eternal, locked within the shapes and behavior of living beings…
