Well done!

We’re all doing our bit, and progress is happening. That’s why, in addition to the weekly roundup of online hangouts, we’re announcing our first offline hangouts in 10 weeks. Read on for the full agenda of online workshops and offline hangouts and feel welcome.  

We’re looking at the situation and our responsibilities carefully, and hopefully will bring you more opportunities to meet new people offline very soon, whilst we continue to offer online options. Stay tuned.

TED Talks Discussion Night II

  • Saturday 30th May 21:00 - 22:30
  • Free!

Chapter 1 of the TED Talks discussion group saw three talks centred around the theme of having better conversations. Things get meta when you’re discussing this sort of topic, and it was a delight to have a chance to practise what we heard as well as challenge each other and the speakers. 

This time, we’re discussing creativity. It’s a fantastic way to soundboard the insights we gain from the videos, to question them, and to ground them with others’ experience. Lend your ideas, we want to hear them.

Details and RSVP here.

Mindfulness, Truth & Nature of Mind

  • Every Monday and Wednesday 19:00 - 20:00
  • Free!

Prepare for a journey OF THE MIND! Since we can’t go anywhere else, it’s one worth traversing.

Every Monday and Wednesday, neuroscientist, philosopher, and mindfulness coach, Chao, invites you to re-engage with your mind and your spirit. We’ll meet for an hour via video chat and both practise mindfulness techniques and discuss the philosophy behind them. Beginners welcome.

Monday: details and RSVP here.

Wednesday: details and RSVP here.

Conspiracy Theories Discussion Night

  • Thursday 4th June, 19:30 - 20:30
  • Free!

We all know the feeling: you’re walking home on a beautiful starry night, acres of Kansas corn fields stretching out either side of the dusty track, only owls and frogs for company. Lo and behold, you’re abducted by a UFO, whizzed across the galaxy, and then dumped unceremoniously back where you came from after their experiments are complete. We feel you. 

Let’s discuss any and all conspiracy theories. We’ll be focusing in particular on extra-terrestrial life, so bring along your ideas, hunches, and even personal experiences.

Details and RSVP here.

Picnic in the Park

  • Saturday 6th June 14:00 - 18:00
  • Free!

Outdoors? Offline? Company? Those are words I’ve not written in a while. But it’s official, we are gradually going to start creating offline hangouts again with social-distancing measures in place.

We’re celebrating the wonderful weather and the increments of freedom with a picnic in Beatrixpark. Food, drinks, and human contact on tap.

Details and RSVP here.
