Conversation Dinner : Anxiety and Discontent
Conversation Dinner Content Image

We don’t know people from the ‘inside’.

People rarely share their true feelings.

People rarely share their pain and worries.

We are all smiling on the outside, yet on the inside we are suffering.

Why are we so afraid of sharing our deepest feelings, worries, and anxieties with the people we love? Plus, why is there so much discontent?

We are currently living in a period of uncertaintity, discontentment and ambiguity and it’s causing a lot of anxiety and despair.  As we witness a decline in decency, kindness and empathy we also know that:

  • Suicide is on the rise
  • Depression is on the rise
  • Drug use is on the rise

“What explanation can there be for this catastrophic escalation,” asks author Andrew Solomon. The reasons are numerous – let’s talk. Join us on June 22nd at 7pm for a conversation dinner. Read Andrew Siolomon’s latest article in the New Yorker for some answers.

“The gap between public triumph and private despair is treacherous, with the outer shell obscuring the real person even to those with whom he or she had professed intimacy.” – Andrew Solomon

Conversation Dinner Detail

Have you ever counted the number of people you speak to in a day? How many of those conversations, were brief, going-through-the-motions exchanges of words? How many were open, honest, real conversations?

We have lost the art of conversation and at The ACADEMi of Life we are bringing it back. Having meaningful face to face conversations is essential to improving our well-being and essential to making the world a better place. In an intimate, one-table setting, over a 3-course meal and wine, we create an atmosphere of unobstructed dialogue and self-discovery through the simple act of getting to know all the guests at the table.

We can host only 12 persons per dinner so register early. Bring a friend. We look forward to you dining with us.

Conversation Dinners can also be arranged exclusively for groups, corporations and non-profit organizations. Please e-mail us at to discuss.
