Conversation Cafés are lively conversations among diverse people about our feelings, thoughts and actions in this complex, changing world. The simple structure of Conversation Cafés and their spirit of respect, curiosity and warm welcome help people shift from small talk to BIG talk. Cafés are unique because they foster inquiry rather than debate - minds and hearts are both involved. The hosts of our March event, Anoek Inbar and Tobin Quereau, have been convening Conversation Café sessions for over four years at the Triumph Café on Spicewood Springs Road (first and third Sundays 1:30-3:00) where anyone is welcome to just show up and join the conversation. This Potluck will be an opportunity to not only learn more about the Conversation Café process, but we will also conduct a short café process so folks will have a first-hand experience. We know the Potluckers love to eat and talk, so this should be a perfect combination! If you have questions about our upcoming gathering, you can contact Anoek at 512-502-8111.
This Potluck is also happening during “Conversation Week 2008” which is an annual event to encourage people in communities everywhere to engage in thoughtful conversation with others about some important questions facing us and our world. You can learn more about the Conversation Café process and Conversation Week, see a listing of gatherings in Texas and around the country, and learn more about how you can become a Conversation Café host by visiting www.conversationcafe.org.
PLEASE BRING a dish that serves 6-8 people. There are no food or beverage restrictions. Our hosts will provide plates, utensils, napkins and cups as well as something non-alcoholic to drink (but you’re welcome to bring other drinks you would like to enjoy).
From Mopac take exit Far West (only one way). Go past the schools and shops, through residential area. Far West drops down a hill, at the bottom it turns a sharp right and becomes Ladera Norte. Take an immediate left (about a 100 yards) and enter Backtrail. Take the second right (not the first! It is called Cedro Cove !) which is Cerro Cove. Go up the hill and you will dead end into our driveway: 6408 Cerro Cove
From 360 north or south: Exit 2222 going east. Take the first left turn (small road and comes quickly off 360) = Lakewood drive. At the Y take the right leg for 50 yards or so, take the first right after Y = Cedro Trail. Take the second left = Lemonwood. At the T, right = Backtrail. First left = Cerro Cove. Go up the hill and you will dead end into our driveway: 6408 Cerro Cove
Please park as much as possible in the driveway and if not possible, be mindful about the neighbors.
