What we're about

We are a group for those who yearn for a greater sense of belonging and crave deeper connections in life. Not only with others, but with themselves, the physical world around them, and the mysterious universe itself. It is an opportunity for people of all diversities to come together in unity and mutually explore experiences that build healthy communities.

"I had a great time conversing with everyone yet again!" -Shane K.

Creating connection can take on many meanings and look very different for each of us, and so we will utilize many fun and engaging models and practices in order to facilitate a good variety of options, such as...

- Conversation Cafés
- Walking & Talking Encounters
- TED Talk Discussions
- Retreats & Workshops
- Community Meals
- Taize Singing Circles
- Reading Groups
- Food & Nutrition Awareness
- Physical Mindfulness
- Kindness Projects
- Pizza & Games Nights
- Care & Compassion Programs
- Pay-it-Forward Initiatives
- Movies That Matter
- Zentangle Doodling
- Adult Colouring Therapy
- Thoughtful Card Making
- Repair Cafés
- Open Mic Reading Nights
- Free Listening Sessions ... and many others, open to your suggestions, interests and ideas.

As we journey together, encountering authentic and genuine connection, a more compelling picture can begin to emerge to help create a greater awareness of the inter-connectedness of everything.

Whether you feel it through your mind, your body, or your inner being, come find new meaning with us.

Coffee & Conversation

Coffee Culture

Creating Connection One Conversation at a Time You are warmly invited for some meaningful conversation, to connect with others and to meet new friends, as we discuss a new topic each week and explore some deeper questions together. 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 its simply to discover yourself amidst a community on a common journey, or to leave just a little bit better then you arrived, you can listen, share, and find meaning here. Namaste. DATE: Wednesday, March 27, 2019 @9:00 am LOCATION: Coffee Culture, 555 Rossland Road, Oshawa, ON NOTE: The RSVPs here represent only some folks who may attend since this event is advertised through several other on-line and print mediums. Creating Connection Oshawa email: [masked] Website: https://oshawa.creatingconnection.ca Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CreatingConnectionOshawa/ Creating Connection Oshawa is part of a network of over twenty communities across Ontario committed to sharing authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities and fostering holistic mind-body practices. People of every walk of life, culture, faith or tradition, participate in a myriad of connection groups, forming meaningful community within the reality of this welcomed diversity. 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.
