Fireside: Everyday Wellness: Making the Right Choices

Salad or burger? Be lazy or exercise? Meditate or Netflix? Yes, we often know what we should do but... we tell ourselves it's ok to indulge once in a while, or that we would start being good next week. Decisions are so often based on how we feel in the moment that we procrastinate on doing what serves us better in the long run. How long do you let your guilty pleasure run before you wake up to doing the things you're supposed to do? And what does that do to your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing? What if it didn't have to be that hard? How do you win your battles over making conscious choices that serve you best each day, instead of settling for decisions out of convenience or circumstance? Are there things we can actually do on a daily basis we haven't even taken notice of?

Join us for a cosy facilitated discussion on how we can make better choices for everyday wellness.

Fireside: Efficiency and the Discipline of Time and Space

What is the nature of time? Do time and space actually exist, or have we created our idea of time for our own convenience? Why do I feel so dictated and restricted by time? What does it mean to be aware of time? Why does time seem to pass faster or slower? How can I consistently be on time, and get things done on time? How should I handle interruptions and past concerns and emotions, to make the most efficient use of the present time? Can we transcend the limitations of time and space? What questions do you have about efficiency, time and space? Bring them into examination with others in a cosy dialogue.

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

Fireside: Leadership, Discipleship and Fellowship

What is essential to being a good leader? Can a leader have multiple leadership styles? How do you break through the notion of a hierarchy and bond with your team when you’re at the top? When a team is new, as in a startup, how do you build a culture and create consensus and buy-in? What can I do to bond my team when they are so diverse? How can I inspire and empower my team to implement bold ideas? How do you transcend the fear of screwing up when you’ve taken on a role that’s bigger than you? Have a question about leadership, discipleship and fellowship? Bring it into examination with others in a cosy dialogue.

Fireside: Dreams, Vision and Faith

Everyone has a dreaming aspect. By following and tapping into subtle feelings, uncontrolled movements, signals and synchronicities, we enter a ‘dreamdoor’ into an altered experience. There, it is possible to gain insight into the deeper meaning of what is calling to be discovered. By enhancing our awareness of these unfamiliar aspects of existence, we can bring wisdom to our everyday experiences, and change and enrich our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to the world. Join us for an experiential session on visionary dreaming, and in a facilitated discussion, find an answer or insights into a question you have been asking yourself.

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

Fireside: Beauty in the Moment

What is beautiful? Where does your concept of beauty come from? Is there beauty in negative situations? What happens to beauty as we age? The Japanese have a saying that translates to the idea that we live each moment only once: “ichi-go ichi-e”, meaning “one time, one meeting”. As nature unfolds in a kind of balanced harmony, all that is happening now cannot be happening in any other way. No two sunsets are ever the same. Even our objects of beauty are not the same each time we interact with them as they change, and we change. How do you appreciate beauty in the transience of things? Join us as we dwell in the experience of beauty and moments of intense presence.

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

Fireside: Guilt, Forgiveness and Letting Go

If you had ever blamed yourself for something, how do you let go of the guilt that keeps you tied to the past? If it was as easy as affirming ourselves, letting go should be easy but why isn’t it? How do you forgive someone who shows no remorse? Or is it a matter of dealing with that part of us that is hurt, and for some reason holding on to the pain and suffering? How do you forgive your parents if they have hurt you in any way? Does holding onto feelings of animosity or cutting them off mean we’re cutting off parts of ourselves? Bring the questions you have to an intimate discussion on how to heal ourselves from guilt, shame and past hurts.

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

Fireside: Connecting Perspectives

Many of us find it difficult to be at ease when meeting someone for the first time. We end up talking about topics that seem acceptable to most people, afraid that we might appear too presumptuous if we got more personal. But that only leaves us yearning for deeper connections. What if, beyond “hello”, we can get to know another person so much better, and even help others through difficult conversations? As we continue exploring our edges and boundaries in relationships, come share and connect to different perspectives that will inspire you to dive into realms you never dreamed you would ever venture into with others.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

What insights have you gained so far from the process of stepping out of your comfort zone to live your greater story? What have you put in place that has made a difference in any area of your life? 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!

If you had been at our last Speaker Night, you would’ve heard from Ryan Paugh, the American who did the unthinkable in society’s terms by taking a break from his exceedingly successful career and going on a 15-month journey.

Ryan will be joining us again at our Fireside. Please feed the Question Bucket! We’ll have your questions discussed and look at how freedom and the lessons Ryan shared about can be experienced in our daily lives.
