What we're about

Our group is based on a Discussion Salon that was started in 2011 and is now being brought to Meetup. It has been comprised of a group of thoughtful and curious individuals, some academics and some not, who meet on a monthly basis to engage in discussions across a wide range of fields such as politics, economics, art, science, health, personal development, sociology, alternative/integrative medicine, etc.

We are bringing our group to Meetup because we are interested in welcoming new members in, people who are excited about engaging in discussions around the above topics in a thoughtful and respectful manner.

Our meetings run September through May on the 4th Sunday of each month from 6 to 9pm at the Harvard Smith Center and are limited to 12 participants.

We welcome individuals of all persuasions and beliefs who can engage in a civil and non-discriminatory discourse with other attendees about the issues being presented.

Each session will be moderated by a speaker who will use the first hour to present the material at hand and then allow 90 minutes for discussion. The first half hour is used to welcome new members, get food from the nearby food vendors and socialize.

We are very excited about this new venture and look forward to accepting new members. Please let us know if there are topics you wish to be a speaker or moderator for.
