A purposeful dinner conversation where we come together as strangers and leave as friends.

Would you be interested in having a real meaningful conversation over a soulful meal? In the past three years, we have had an unprecedented period of isolation and distancing. As we crawl out of this era, we are hosting small gatherings to connect and share with kindred spirits.

People walk in as strangers and left as friends. These conversations are a sacred space with an invitation to be authentic, appropriately vulnerable and open-minded. The carefully curated format allows for connection with confidentiality.

As the veil of the pandemic begins to lift, this dinner conversation is an attempt to heal from the pain of social distancing and to help foster emotional well-being through connection, and empathy among people with different perspectives and beliefs.

This event will be guided by Jay Chodagam, once a national champion sailor, a monk for 18 years, an engineer, a TEDx speaker and now a Realtor. Read more at https://joywithjay.com/about
