Interested in human rights and social justice? Unsure as to the direction of our political, social and economic institutions?

And are you looking for fellow humans to meet and encourage learning and help inspire change?

In this book club, we encourage each other to learn more, discuss ideas, challenge each other and teach each other. Together we explore nonfiction, memoir and fiction books that we collectively choose. We may also follow up our book club meeting with a tea or a beer down the street.

We meet in cafes or bookstores in the Mountain View/Palo Alto area.

The environment we hold for our discussions is open and compassionate. Recognizing and honoring the different beliefs and political viewpoints, and seeking best to understand and explore. Six principles for dialogue:

6 principles common to most dialogue and circle groups guide the conversations:
. Suspend judgment as best you can
. Respect one another
. Seek to understand rather than persuade
. Invite and honor diversity of opinion
. Speak what has personal heart and meaning
. Go for honesty and depth without going on and on

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
