So how do people connect? The simplest way is through storytelling... Or it would be simple if we hadn't messed it up so badly.

Storytelling used to be about sharing our experiences clearly, so that they may be useful to others. The earliest stories, cave paintings, and native American petroglyphs show where to hunt and what to avoid. Stories on Facebook and Instagram are not so informative or truthful, and often provoke judgment and even ridicule.

In this Meetup, we want to gather people from all sorts of backgrounds to tell their stories clearly, in a low-stress environment without any judgment... AND to practice listening to each other's stories without judgment; seeking only clarity and information. The outcome is stronger connections, better information, and more enjoyable conversations.

We have a proven event structure that makes this happen easily and comfortably. The storytelling is impromptu, no one knows the story subjects or themes in advance.

All we need is you.... you already have your stories so there's nothing else you need to bring.
