Types of Events
Speaker Nights are a great place to begin an inquiry on a life topic, through inspiring shares by ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives. Through their stories and journeys, get a glimpse into aspects about the topics we may not have explored. Sharing is candid, raw and real, reflecting values such as truth, respect, and wonder that fade as we grow older.
Wisdom Sessions are a great space to explore your thoughts and experiences on a life topic in-depth, and hear from others in a facilitated discussion. Led by Professional Certified Coach Julia Ng, there are dynamic models, concepts, coaching sequences and experiential activities designed to deepen our awareness and enrich our experience around the topic.
Firesides are intimate discussions held in a cafe, over a drink or meal—perfect for sharing your lingering thoughts and questions having attended the Wisdom Session and Speaker Night on a life topic. Our Question Bucket is ever ready to keep the conversation going, with questions to ponder on, deepen the discussion, and learn about life on a more conscious level.
“What should I choose to focus on next year and how can I make the next year even better?” If that’s a question on your mind as we approach the new year, forget about new year resolutions and pipe dreams that don’t work and come join us as we facilitate a discussion to complete your year powerfully and create the next. We’ll be inquiring into what makes a fulfilling life beyond the daily grind, the kind of life you’d like to have for yourself, the steps you need to take moving forward to fulfill it, and the resources and support you need. Find out through sharing and inquiry the balance between keeping your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground.Read More
We must have experienced mental block, being stuck, awkwardness, and performance anxiety in the most critical of times. How often do our minds edit our imaginative ideas down to what we consider makes logical sense, stopping our natural flow of expression? How do we unfreeze and get into a creative flow state, sparking our imagination and bringing ideas into reality? Experience an increased awareness of your creative capacity through an improvisation session led by Julia, where you’ll explore beyond mental limits and flow into a realm of possibilities for teambuilding, problem solving, ideating, public speaking, writing, storytelling and more.Read More
How do leaders become great? What makes others follow them, or even die for them? On what premise or principles do they make decisions, especially in critical situations? And what does it take for them to lead their people to win a war or cause worth fighting for? In our first Movie Night, Dwelling takes a new spin on our usual Philosophy Sessions where we will explore leadership themes through characters, plots, and principles that can be found in a movie. In a discussion thereafter we will draw out what our favorite heroes and villains reflect in us and in those around us, and how the plot reflects real life situations we face and how we approach them.Read More
We find ourselves drawn to certain stars, world leaders, and people who captivate us by their magnanimous deeds. Does charisma belong to just these people, or can you have it too? What is charisma?

Do you ever wonder what you have that draws others to you, and what kind of people you're drawn to? If you're ready to discover how others see you and what qualities you have to offer, join us in this Philosophy Session on Charisma to become aware of what makes you truly charismatic, and begin to step into your natural confidence around others.Read More
