Hug Nation is a weekly, world-wide, Group Hug – started in 2001.

Those pesky oceans keep us from doing the weekly hug physically, so we do it virtually. Thousands of people around the world gather in front of computers to hug themselves and the people around them at a set time. Rather than a shared physical space, it is a shared mental space.

Regardless of where you are on Tuesday at 1-pm (PST), you can join the Group Hug.

Squeeze yourself in your car or in the supermarket. Hug your spouse or co-worker. Just visualize the thousands worldwide who are joining you at that moment.

Think of it as a sort of prayer — a communal expression of compassion. It is a weekly reminder that we are connected and we all far more similar than we are different. Everyone can use a hug.

The world is torn apart. We need to connect. We need to be able to reach out and feel that there are people out there who care and love and feel like we do.

We need to be able to feel that — regardless of what soil our feet are planted on –our hearts are in the same place.

For the first time in the history, we have the tools to connect the entire world. The Internet may be a nifty place to buy your books online, but at its core, it is a way for ALL of us to connect to one another.

Now, more than ever, we need to use any tools we have to heal our planet. Will it work? A better question is, “Will we try?”

  1. hey john, i came across your site while looking for tips for burning man as i have wanted to go since 2003 and was this close || to going last year. in any case, just would like to say keep up the good stuff inspiring people. pretty cool stuff. t/c man.

  2. Ive heard about Burning Man over the last couple yrs but it wasnt until a few weeks ago that ive really been entertaing the idea. Ive been searching and watching all the videos I can find. It fuels the want and the need to experience this wonderful week long adventure. I stumbled across your tips n tricks videos and they of course lead me to your youtube page. I must say I love all your videos on Burning Man!
    Thank you for all the hugs and love you put out to the universe! Much love n hugs ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love the message you are spreading about love especially self love! I find that Burning Man is a great place to play with self expression expecially if you don’t get to be yourself in the real world. I went to Burning man for the first time last year with my mom (it was her first time too) I am fortunate that I come from a generation where I can be myself but my mom has not been that lucky…untill Burning Man. She said she always had to define herself by her job, spouse or other social expectations and At BM she could finely just be herself and she reveled in the fact that everyone could be themselves. It is a beautiful thing. TY BM and all the beautiful souls that visit there. I look forward to giving everyone a big hug on the playa!
