Fireside: Wonder

What does it mean to live life with a sense of wonder? How do we inject that childlike state of wonder into our adult life that expands our imagination and creativity in the everyday things we do? Is it possible to keep our sense of wonder all the time, even when things go wrong? How does one combat sentiments of certainty and rigidity? And how do you know when you have achieved a balance between the need for certainty and wonder? How do we know when we should listen to messages we get from flirts in our environment? Have a question about Wonder? Join the discussion and discover what more there is to Wonder.

Wisdom Session: Wonder

How often do we pause from our busy schedules, our judgements of why things are so, our need to be certain about outcomes, and allow ourselves to be surprised as we let the magic of life unfold? Are there things that life is meant to show us if we can just be present, open and curious? If we could walk through life with a sense of wonder, what wisdom could we tap into beyond our physical mind? What can we learn and appreciate through the interconnectedness and dance between ourselves and nature? Join us for a conscious walk and reclaim your sense of wonder – a quality we all have as children, that seems to fade as we grow older.

Speaker Night: Wonder

Remember a time you looked with childlike wonder at a spiderweb, or asked why your mom would kill a fish she brought home, or wondered why it was wrong to color grass black? And nobody could really understand you? Alas, spiderwebs have become a common sight, you’ve forgotten about your pet fish, and you no longer notice the color of grass in your garden at night. We have lost our ability to see goodness in the world, to be curious, to play, and to live life fearlessly. Instead, we’ve bought into the ways of the world, living dull, predictable lives. What would it be like if we could experience life in all its beauty and awesome wonder again?

Fireside: Ego
Oct

7:30 PM19:30

Fireside: Ego

Who is to judge whether an ego is healthy or not? Can a person really change who or what he is? Is it possible to heal an unhealthy ego? What is a healthy ego? How is self-esteem and confidence related to one’s ego? When I put my ego aside I feel suppressed. How can I strike a balance between being too critical and too nice? How do I use my ego positively for growth? Does altruism exist, and how do we know it’s not somebody’s ego? What can we do to be more aware of and responsible for our egos? Have a question about ego? Share them and open yourself up to different perspectives and experiences of others as we wrap up our series on Ego.

Speaker Night: Ego
Sep

7:30 PM19:30

Speaker Night: Ego

What makes you, you? Where do you get your concept of self? Who are you, really? Are you your thoughts, your emotions, your body, or a bunch of traits that define your personality? While we identify ourselves with these, in the end they lead us to suffering because we only live within the confines of our conditioning. Ego can be destructive, yet fear of ego can stop us from growing. How do we jump over ourselves? Journey with Eugenia Gajardo, our distinguished speaker, in an inquiry about what lies beyond our self-identifications that can truly give us our sense of “I exist”, and the dance between discovering one’s inner power, arrogance, and personal responsibility and power.

Wisdom Session: Ego

“I can’t stand his ego! Who does he think he is?” “My ego just took a beating after my boss insulted me in front of my peers.” “I am lazy.” “We should be humble.” These are all statements that come from ego – a term we use loosely to refer to our own self-concept as distinct from others, which affects our self-esteem, self-worth, and in turn, our behaviors, our choices, and how we live our lives. Everyone has an ego, and it’s almost impossible to be devoid of our personality. The question then is what is my ego? What is its nature? And how do I live with it personally, and socially? In a fun and lighthearted interactive session, develop greater self-awareness by discovering the different parts of you.

Fireside: Trust

7:30 PM19:30

Fireside: Trust

Trust is such an important part of a relationship, yet many of us struggle with it for different reasons. How can I tell if someone is trustworthy? What can I do to get her to trust me? How do I continue to trust others as the boundaries of my relationships are tested over time? When do we trust the past, and when do we trust the future? Can I trust someone without making myself vulnerable? What is the source of distrust, and how do I know if it comes from me or the other person? How can I prevent mistrust from creeping into my relationships? Have a question about trust? Come share and uncover what there is to learn through different perspectives.

This Dwelling session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Wisdom Session: Trust
Jul
18
7:30 PM19:30

Wisdom Session: Trust

The best teams have a high degree of trust, where members have faith in one another to do the right thing. This means believing in another person’s integrity, strength, and ability to the degree that you’re willing to put yourself at some risk. Trust is essential to an effective team because it provides a sense of safety to share, collaborate, be creative and take risks towards achieving a common goal without fear of others protecting themselves or their own interests. When does trust become a reliance or pressure on others? Through a lighthearted evening of fun, games and insightful sharing, discover how trust is reflected in the way you interact with others in various aspects of life.

Cost goes towards rental of games ($3.30/hr) and F&B (menu prices) from Settlers Café. Dwelling does not charge any fees to attend this session.

Speaker Night: Trust
Jul

7:30 PM19:30

Speaker Night: Trust

“Trust is conditional.” “Trust has to be earned.” “Trust takes time to build.” “Trust the process.” “I’ll trust them if they pass my test.” What is your concept of trust, and when did it get formed? Fundamentally, what makes you trust, or not trust? How do you trust what is unknown? We believe that good relationships are built on mutual trust and respect, but what if you trust someone who turns out not to be honest? We have probably all been hurt. Can trust that is lost be rebuilt? Join our speakers as we share our journeys of trust and distrust, and facilitate a discussion on the nature, value, and (how to get around) the paradox of trust in relationships.

How have your patterns in commitment either helped or hindered you in various aspects of life that are important to you?

Think of a time when you embarked on something and did whatever it took to see it through. What compelled you to? Was it to fulfill a promise you made, even in the darkest moments of that journey? Were there times you wanted to give up, and what kept you going? What did you forego to get what you really wanted? Often we fight a battle within ourselves about the choices we make to fulfill what lies deep within us. In the end, what wins out? Through an award-winning movie and facilitated discussion, discover what it means to follow the beat of your own drum and to be a force of devotion that triumphs over adversity.

What does it mean to commit, whether to yourself, or to someone else, or to a chosen field? Why do so many people fear commitment? What are we committing to when we say ‘yes’ to something or to someone either willingly or unwillingly? And when things go wrong do we push on or hold back, and how does either consequence impact us? How do we stay committed to the choices we made? Come hear from Suchi, our speaker who is no stranger to Dwelling, and expand your notion of what commitment is as she shares about what it takes to persist in one’s chosen endeavors through the most difficult moments.

Important questions arise about whether this is something for us; or when the going gets tough, how much to keep persisting and when to stop and try something else. If you could examine your relationship to your leans or ‘callings’, your practical considerations and commitment, you would get realizations for yourself on how to pursue your passions in ways that allow your deepest truths and growth as a person to guide your choices and make your chosen endeavors worthwhile.

Speaker Night: Passion

It’s something everyone wants to find – their passion. But what is it and how do you find it? How do you know you are passionate about something? Is passion a burning flame of enthusiasm, or is it something more? It’s easy to think that when we’ve lost our enthusiasm for something we are no longer passionate, and we look for something else hoping to find it there. What eludes us is that we might be experiencing passion without even knowing it. Dwelling invites you to join us on the road to discovering passion as our speakers share their experiences so we can deepen our understanding of what passion really is.

Our pursuit of ‘the good life’ and how to achieve it leads to the desire to acquire more, often beyond our basic needs. And with consumerism encouraging the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts, how do we get to a life of simplicity? What do your possessions and the notion of having them mean to you? Why is it so difficult to let go of them?

What is simplicity? Without a deeper understanding of it, we could pursue a lifestyle of simplifying our environments and glorify the idea of minimalism only to find that the once decluttered space fills up again. There is more to simplicity than just eliminating things. How can simplicity help in decision-making, better understanding in communications, and make for a richer life that flows? Join our talented speaker, Sean Chua, as he shares useful and applicable principles around the process of getting to simplicity. As head of concept of a company that creates explainer videos, Sean condenses complex topics into 3 minutes.

How do we resolve energy conflicts within ourselves – for example, sweet and tough, or quiet and wild, or withdrawing and exerting. What do these energies in us have to do with what we see in our relationships, or in the news about the world around us? What we don’t realize is that we are inextricably linked to timeless processes which go far beyond our present identity, that we are part of these shared fields, and that everything is needed for the larger whole. Join us in exploring the process of coherence and decoherence, and get to resolve a personal energy conflict for yourself.

Fireside: How to Navigate through Change

Were there times in your life where there was sudden change and you were caught off-guard? We have expectations that things should go a certain way, but the truth is everything is constantly shifting, balancing out, and never still. We don’t know what we’re going to get, and we need to let go of our assumptions that come from our attachments to things to be pliant enough to move when things move. So how do you maneuver through things in flux, and not get stuck, worried, or stressed out? This Fireside, join us in a fun activity that will give you an experience of the state of flow and how that could shift the way you encounter change.

This session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Catch up with fellow Dwellers to share as we gather again for our Fireside to wrap up our series, “How to Live a Life of Greatness – Courage and Freedom in Growth”.

In relationships, fostering closeness often requires us to allow ourselves to be vulnerable with another person. This takes courage and can be exceedingly difficult. As a result, some of us run out of conversation to take our encounters further and make our exchanges count. Meaningful sharing often involves asking questions that allow you and your partner to discover yourselves at a deeper level. This Fireside, we give you those questions. Game to explore and expand your relational self? Join us for an unforgettable evening!
