Salon Interest Form
What makes a conversation really good? It's one that makes you question something you thought you understood well. One that leaves you feeling a sense of wonder and optimism. One that gives you a new understanding of the world. One that encourages vulnerability and brings you and your counterpart closer together.
A good conversation involves asking lots of questions, and spending the time needed to explore answers to them. It involves each participant teaching the others something from their own knowledge and experiences, and approaching disagreements with reason and curiosity, with the goal of finding the truth. It involves actively making progress towards a better understanding of our selves and our world.
I'd like more of my conversations to have these qualities, and I'd like you to join me in making this happen.
There's just one prerequisite for participating: you have to believe that conversation (exploring thoughts and ideas with openness, reason, and compassion) is an effective tool for getting closer to the truth...and is also super fun.

Optional Survey Questions 👇
These questions are more for me to craft a positive experience, but feel free to skip.
Any topics/questions you're especially interested in?
The meetings are generally Tuesday evenings at 8pm ET, but we're flexible. Any comments on availability?
e.g. weekends vs weekday evenings; what time of day (and timezone). Also, EACH SESSION IS STILL OPT-IN, no upfront commitment.
What formats are you interested in?
Talks with Q&A
Open-ended group conversation
What group size feels reasonable for you?
I've kept them open and sometimes they go up to 13-15 people, but I'm also open to smaller, more intimate groups.
Are you open to meeting new people through this?
Any other comments/suggestions?
