What we're about

Creating Connection One Conversation at a Time

Join us for meaningful conversation, connect with others and meet new friends, as we discuss the week's topic "How do you know what you believe to be true?" and some deeper questions together.

We offer a safe, inclusive, casual, and accepting environment that encourages dialogue over debate through sharing from our diverse perspectives and experiences.

We enjoy going beyond small talk, while at the same time building community, creating meaning, and valuing the worth of all persons, in an effort to promote peace and understanding in the world by envisioning our role together... and your voice matters!

Come, simply to discover yourself amidst a community on a common journey, or to leave just a little bit better then you came.

Come, listen, share, and find meaning here.

We welcome you.

By building relationships of trust, we can facilitate inner peace and meaningful conversations in our inclusive communities. We are LGBTQ+ affirming.
