    It's the 200th Cafe Inquiry and we are going to celebrate with cake. Ron Irvine will be speaking:
    Journey of the Heart.
    Writing has become a way for me to find my voice and to give voice to my questions; a journey from dogmatism and certainty to inquiry and dialogue, from living with clenched fists to living with open hands. (
    Going beyond beliefs and dogma, lets come together and dialogue about being human; facing our drive for certainty and “knowing”, comfort and security, to finding meaning and purpose in a world that seems to make no sense.
