What we're about

This group creates opportunities for you to experience deeper connections in life - either within yourself, with others, the world around us, or the divine cosmos itself. Whether you feel it through your mind, your body or your inner being, there can be an awakening and/or transformation that, in the end, leads to greater wholeness, purpose and a sense of belonging.

Utilizing effective models and practices such as Conversation Cafés, TED Talk Discussions, Weekend Retreats, Workshops and Seminars, Sacred Listening Circles, Book Clubs, Food & Nutrition Classes, Holistic Mind-Body Practices, Mindfulness and Meditation, Pay-it-Forward Campaigns, Krafting Kindness Activities, Care & Compassion Programs, Adult Colouring Therapy, Zentangling and Journalling , and many others, a more compelling picture begins to emerge of how everything is interconnected.

[ONLINE] Conversation Café - Walkerton Edition @ 11 AM

In this new reality of self-isolation and social distancing we can still remain connected as an inclusive and meaningful community by taking conversation to the on-line world. In Walkerton, Ontario this used to take place in-person every Wednesday. Through ZOOM video conference we can keep that going while at the same time opening it up to folks here and everywhere. And so, from the comfort of your own space, you are warmly invited into dialogue with others and to discussing different topics each week while exploring some deeper questions along the way. In this safe, inclusive, casual, and accepting environment, dialogue is encouraged over debate as each person has opportunity to share from their own diverse perspectives and experiences. Folks in this group enjoy going beyond small talk, reflecting both inward and outward, helping build pathways for more peace and understanding in the world... and your voice matters! No particular set of beliefs (or creed) is required to be a part of this community building activity. Diverse perspectives are welcome. Whether to discover yourself amidst a community on a common journey, or to find meaning among new friends, there is room at the table for you. We are LGBTQ+ affirming. Namaste.

Creating Connection is a network of twenty communities across Ontario committed to sharing authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities and fostering holistic wellness practices.

As a result of this inclusive outlook, these communities are multi-faceted - expressing the inspirations, aspirations, wisdom, practices and blessing of all. By welcoming and accepting people who identify as “more spiritual than religious”, those searching for meaning, and those with humanist or agnostic approaches to life, the collective Creating Connection experience transcends the sum of our individual ways of being. By embodying the principle of unity in diversity, we discover that dialogue is enriched by individuals with different backgrounds and experiences - and even by viewpoints which are contrary. By building relationships of trust, we can facilitate inner peace and meaningful conversations in our inclusive communities.
