What we're about

“Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.”― Tom Hanks

This quote can be a summary of our talks together. So engaged with our conversations, we sometimes stay an extra hour! Thank you to everyone who come from near and far to spend time with us.

This group is for intellectual, but more importantly, contemplative thinkers to come together and share conversations about issues that face our communities locally, nationally and globally. It's a great place to meet other people who love to think about important issues, and it's about having those deep conversations that make everyone lose track of time.

Discussing The Topics That Matter Most

EarthFare Market

• What we'll do *************** We will spend a little time getting to know each other, and begin exploring the scope and direction of our discussions. The list of topics to consider is broad, and together we will narrow the field to a few most popular issues to focus on. As we move into the discussions, expect robust and energizing conversation that will peel back the layers of our topic and help us move to the core of the important issues we decide to address. We recognize that we sometimes don't agree with the opinions or beliefs of others who choose to join us; however, the diverse discussion that develops is encouraged. Contemplative conversations are not debates. Instead, we seek to understand, then be understood. To support this effort, we strongly discourage unfounded conspiratorially charged dialogue. • Important to know *************** Our host, EarthFare Market has extended the privilege of their space for our MeetUp. Coffee, tea, sodas and snacks are available at EarthFare, as well as shopping for your groceries in a place supportive of the environment, renewable and clean energy. Please considering joining their mailing list. Thank you.
