Welcome to Meaningful Conversations that can Change Your Life!
This meetup group offers you a fascinating and stimulating experience.
We have a variety of wonderful discussion groups on our meetup calendar, including a book club that meets every two weeks ("Books that can Change Your Life") and we also host Santa Barbara's Premier News Group which meets every other Saturday.
Our members are devoted to our self-improvement events. We have a core of regulars who come to our world news events, and a regular group of members who join us for our fascinating self-improvement discussion groups.
By joining this group you'll have access to all of our events which are completely free to attend. Your only "cost" in attending our events is a cup of coffee. You are also welcome to order lunch or some wonderful baked goods including a variety of breads and awesome pastries. The restaurant where we meet also offers a large selection of healthy salads and entrees!
I've been hosting our meetup events for nearly six years already. We meet four times a month - and you're welcome to attend our meetups as often as you wish. Please join us and participate in some powerful conversations that can change your life. All of us are intelligent, educated, and will welcome you into our group.
As part of our ever-growing meetup community, you will also be invited to join us for meetups that will help you enhance your sense of well-being, improve your health, and teach you more about social awareness.
