Bolts of Love had its kick-off meeting in January 2014. A conversation spurred the gathering between Karen McGrath, Erin Stolz, and Jenn Shepherd. During the conversation, they pondered the meaning of people competing and arguing their viewpoints, especially in spiritual settings. The joke between the three was that all one needed to do was throw Bolts of Love (similar to Zeus throwing lightning bolts) to get everyone to play nice with each other. The three pondered the idea of setting up a space for gathering, for people to share their viewpoints on the world and their connection to it and have constructive conversations about what was being shared. The world and its perspectives moved forward through dialogue and cooperation instead of division and competition.
