Saloon Salons; or The Art of Conversation is Not Dead

This fall, my husband and I are going to start facilitating ‘Salons’ in our home, where we facilitate dialogue on lots of metaphysical topics. We’re inviting a few couples now to come and spend two evenings a month socializing in a new way~

Instead of talking about sports, or [God-forbid] work! we’re going to offer up topics to consider ahead of time by email, so that our friends can have some time to ponder the subject and have formulate some thoughts before coming over. Of course, these will be opening questions and convos will go off topic and allow for a wide-ranging, involved discussions that may lead to who-knows-what? Flash mobs and social activism, creation of music and art, and probably a more dynamic community. Watch out world!

Topics we’re considering combine the latest Scientific findings and esoteric Spirituality; ‘the nature of the universe, unified field theory, string theory’, practical applied Kabbalah principals, personality types of the Enneagram, and more general topics such as ‘what is the definition of the Authentic self?
These kinds of ‘adult education classes’ are the kind I teach/participate in at our Unitarian Universalist church, but we hope to start more meaningful dialogue and a comfortable, close-knit group of friends by opening up our home. Of course, alcoholic beverages will be served up to loosen the otherwise tight lipped. We’ll call them “Saloon Salons” 😀

I hope to get permission from the participants to post general comments here about our findings.
I encourage you to try this in your homes as well! Why settle for small talk when there’s so much depth to life?  ~ooohhH! this will be exciting! Stay tuned.
Namaste’

Comment: our first ‘official’ Saloon Salon was held September 10, 2011  on the topic of “The Nature of Reality; parallel universes and cosmic consciousness. A good time was had by all.
Upcoming Salon to be held October 22, 2011 on the topic “How does the Mind affect Reality” using the book, “Biology of Belief” and the latest findings on Matter and Mass. Stay tuned…
