monthly discussion group

An open monthly discussion group on varying topics - dating, religion, sex, work, spirituality, dealing with aging parents, raising kids, or WHATEVER sparks your fancy. 

Come and enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea and maybe a yummy pastry while talking around the table each month with new friends. 

Discussion Group Rules

Plan to arrive on time and remain for the entire discussion group. If you do need to leave early, please let us know before starting that you'll be leaving at a certain time, and excuse yourself quietly.

Unless you’re expecting an emergency call, please turn cell phones off. (Using laptops or other gadgets is also generally not appropriate.)

This group is for discussing ideas, not debate or arguing. No one is right; no one is wrong. In particular, there is no single correct point of  view on any topic.  

Everyone should treat everyone else with respect: Listen to what is said, avoid interrupting or finishing someone's thoughts.

Keep your comments brief and to the point, so everyone has a chance to speak.Respects the groups time.

Do not attack, or try to hurt, or pass judgment on anyone, whether or not they are present.

Treat this group session as a private conversation, do not repeat elsewhere what is said here.

Everyone is responsible for following and upholding the ground rules.

    The Commons area was a great place to have it. We never really discussed a topic, everyone just kind of had their own conversations going.

    Love good conversation and looking forward to this! Is there a topic that we will start with at the meetup, or just see where the discussion goes? First time attending ~

      I'm guessing either the weather or the Seahawks may be a topic! Just guessing.

    I would consider attending if not for some of the rules.

      what is wrong with the rules?

    • Verne F.

      The rules boil down to three things. Be present, pay attention listen and engage,. Be civil, and be concise. Personally I would roll my eyes at anyone taking issue with the latter two, so I assume she's one one of those folks who like to zone out with the phone out. Alot of people retreat to the phone rather than interacting with people and that would be problematic in a discussion group.

    Confused??? I received a notice saying it was 10:30 not 9:30 as listed on this meetup notice. Which is it?
