This monthly gathering is meant to be both intellectually stimulating as well as social leading us out of a year of forced isolation into a promising future, hopefully with a fresh perspective.
Socrates based his discussions on knowledge not just opinion. Shadybrook's Socrates Cafe has elected to focus on a different topic each month to broaden our horizons. Each participant is encouraged to research & contribute insight, but passive observers are equally welcome. Each topic welcome various viewpoints open for discussion within a structured format, which honors each individual.
Refreshments are meant to add to the relaxed, casual atmosphere of exploration and shared engagement. We will enjoy 'decent' (mostly mid-palate) wine offerings that differ month to month, along with exciting non-alcoholic mocktails for non-wine drinkers. Non-dairy and vegetarian snacks will always be provided and crackers will now be gourmet GF. This is a snack and not a dinner substitute so please eat dinner before you arrive.
It is our hope to create a safe space in which to open our minds and share diverse ideas. This allows us to better appreciate the thoughts and opinions of others and experiences that helped form them.
Our core group has found this to be a monthly event we all look forward to. We invite you to join our investigative journey. Bring a friend - it's fun to continue discussions on the ride home!
*Address will be provided upon registration.
