July 28 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


We may all be living in interesting times, to quote the apocryphal curse, but how we choose to do so is up to us.

We might find new ways to celebrate family by feasting, turn a formal dining room into a makeshift gymnasium, reach for the farthest corners of our library, go back to university to complete that long-delayed thesis, practice mindfulness in the tool shed or strategize rebuilding the economy and creating a new culture of work. There is at least as much that we can do than there is the obverse that we can’t.

We anticipate the first  meeting to go for one hour.

Why not join a group that’s prepared to share the spoils of this pandemic?
