What we're about

Thinking While Drinking (http://thinkingwhiledrinking.org/) is a group for anyone in the Orange County area interested in discussing topics that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind - all while enjoying a drink at different locations in our beautiful county.

For each event, the facilitators will come prepared with a handful of thought provoking questions and concepts on the topic at hand, we'll see what everyone has to say and go from there...

We are not suggesting that life's difficult and fascinating questions will be neatly answered during our meetups nor that any sort of professional therapy or dogma will take place. This is just a space to meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.

Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions page (http://bit.ly/twdfaq) for more group info. To see a list of every topic we have discussed hop over to our Topics page (http://bit.ly/twdtopics) and every place (pre Covid) we have visited is on our TWD OC Chapter page (http://bit.ly/twd-oc).

Last but not least, our group is run entirely by volunteers and your donations go a long way to keep us afloat. Help support us by contributing to our Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/thinkingwhiledrinking) or buying a custom TWD T-shirt (http://bit.ly/twd-tshirt) or pint glass (http://bit.ly/twd-glass).

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you (online for now) at an upcoming event!

[Online] How To Remain Calm With People

Online event

Suggested viewing before we meet (~5 min video): https://youtu.be/du035tg-SwY

How can one calm down by discerning between what someone else does and what they meant to do?

Why are we not very good at perceiving motives in the incidents that frustrate us?

Would we be calmer around adults if we could resort to the poise we use around children?

How can one focus on the source of agony that drives the person maddening you to act in appalling ways?

Let's think about it!
