Do you find yourself craving more than small talk? Something deeper than polite chit chat and amusing anecdotes?
Research tells us there is a link between time spent engaged in meaningful conversation and happiness. This is particularly the case with more introverted people but there is a basic need in all of us for deep connection with other humans.
The intention behind ‘Brave Words’ is to provide a series of conversation evenings in Wotton, where you can enjoy facilitated discussion in small groups with people you already know or perhaps with people you’ve never spoken to before. We don’t all have to agree and topics have been chosen deliberately to bring out a range of opinions. The aim is to stimulate lively, respectful debate.
Snacks and drinks will be available throughout the night.
