The Worldview Cafe was born out of pure excitement.

When people started requesting follow up meetings because they wanted to keep on exploring their worldviews in meaningful conversations with others, we realised the immense value of these conversations.

The fact that we can have such profound conversations with people from different places in the world, while sitting in the comfort of our homes, is actually amazing and a potential we felt we should harness.

The format

The format is simple. We host a virtual meeting once a month in which anyone interested can participate. The meetings will last for an hour to maximum 75 minutes.

We start with a warm welcome, explain the basic conversational techniques, and do a short mindfulness practice together. After that, we’ll break into small groups, of two or three people per break out room. In this way we can explore our beliefs, values, and frameworks in a safe and intimate setting, and learn more about ourselves and others.

Simple exercises and powerful questions support us in this process. We’ll have at least half an hour of in depth conversation and exploration in these small groups. After that, we’ll meet with the whole group to exchange insights and experiences, and close the meeting.

Practicals

You can come every month, only once, and everything in between. The cafe is free and open to all, but you do need to register beforehand.

We’ll keep on introducing new exercises and questions so the space stays alive, also for the repeat participant. For us it’s a great opportunity to explore what methods and questions are most helpful to facilitate self-discovery and generative conversation.

You can take the worldview-test before hand, and/or watch some of the educational videos to get fully prepared, but it’s not necessary. All you really need to do is show up with a curious mind and heart. You may be surprised and delighted by the depth of connection and conversation that emerges!
