The Uptown Discussion Forum meets for meaningful discussions about a variety of pertinent and interesting topics. Meetings are limited to ten people and take place somewhere in Manhattan north of 59th Street. Meetings consist of a mindfulness activity, member introductions, discussions on three predetermined topics, and a debriefing discussion. Discussions are guided by common rules intended to encourage engaging conversations. This group is a great way to meet new people and engage in intellectual discussion. We respect honesty, the exchange of ideas, and respect for diversity.
