What we're about

We are a group of individuals who want to engage in thoughtful and intelligent conversations on a wide range of topics. We try to reach the substance of an issue and to probe into some of the messy details, all while having fun.

We could talk about politics, science, spirituality, the environment, relationships, or the nature of the universe.

Come join us! Help us find fun and meaning in our conversations. You can suggest a topic close to your heart. You can even lead the discussion if you wish. We encourage your maximum participation during a discussion, or just sit back and chime in occasionally with a comment or a question.

These are not debates. We are not interested in having an organized argument, nor do we want to engage in partisan bickering. There are no winners and losers. If you learned something new, then the conversation was a success. Who knows? You might even change your mind about something!

Over the years, many of us have become deep and meaningful friends who love to socialize. Two hours of intense conversation often leads to a group going out afterwards for a meal (in normal times). This is a great way to break into a whole new social group, make new friends, and have fun!

We are meeting via zoom at the moment, but are anxiously awaiting a time when we can all get together in person.
