Event description

Description

Dinner Confidential's mission is to help build a world where women feel more free, loving, connected and courageous.

We explore the full spectrum of the feminine experience through storytelling and community. Each month we investigate a different social topic globally (i.e.: Failure, Sexuality, Courage etc) through intimate dinners and then share the learnings with our community. You can read our stories via Medium or our website.


Our SUMMER Topics:

  • Thursday August 29th "Trust" --> When we feel trust - whether for ourselves, for a loved one, for a community - there's a sense of safety and security that allows us to to open and truly be ourselves. Trust is so fundamental to relating, and yet, can feel so hard to establish - and so easily broken. What does it mean to be worthy of trust, and how do we cultivate trusting relationships in our lives? And if that trust is broken, how do we recover, and allow ourselves to be open to trusting again? Let's have a conversation about trust - how to create it, maintain it, and rebuild it when it's gone.
  • Thursday September 26th "Power" --> It's always there. Governing moments both ordinary and extraordinary - from the office, to the bedroom, to our friendships - our relationship with power often emerges from its imbalance. Sometimes we feel strong, influential, perhaps "better" than other people. And on the flip side, there are times when we can feel inferior, worthless or unsafe. Let's explore our relationship with our “power” — what happens when we abuse it OR we give it away/it’s taken away? What does it take —and how it feels—to stand in our true power (where we don’t better better or worse than anyone else)?

During our intimate dinners (7-10 max), our experienced hosts create a safe container for women to come together and talk with vulnerability and honesty about our most personal topics and emotions (e.g. self-confidence, fear, control). After each dinner, we identify the key learnings and insights from the night and share them with our community so they, too can benefit from the experience. You can read our stories via Medium or our website.


We are currently hosting dinners in over 20 cities around the world. New cities coming soon. Please get in touch if you'd like to attend a dinner in one of these cities.


FAQs

Do attendees know each other?

  • Sometimes. But usually they don’t and that’s part of the magic. Coming into a place full of strangers to open up and share some of your most personal experiences is very powerful. No one there knows your history, you are a blank canvas. People won’t judge you or give you advice (unless you specifically ask for it). We are there to listen, share and connect.

Do I need to prepare for the Dinner?

  • A little bit! Your host will send all the details of the night via email, including a few questions for you to reflect upon prior the Dinner. All Dinners start with an intimate set of introductions, where each guest share her stories and is deeply heard.

How much are the dinners and what’s included?

  • Dinners are $15 and they include a healthy and yummy meal. We invite our guests to bring one thing to drink (wine, flavored water, etc.). Note that we are NOT making any profit from these evening and the fee only covers the cost.

Do the meals follow certain dietary guidelines?

  • Our hosts will always ensure there are vegetarian options available. If you have specific dietary restrictions, be sure to communicate with your host at least 1.5 weeks in advance.

How do you keep confidentiality?

  • We include a vow of confidentiality in our invitation, and reiterate the importance of confidentiality at the start of each dinner. We create a strong container of trust and integrity, and expect the same of all of our participants.

What makes DC different from a women’s circles?

  • Our secret is our hosts and the stories we tell! Our dinners are led by professional moderators, researchers and facilitators all around the world. Brilliant women with years of experience conducting challenging conversations amongst diverse groups of people. We’re less about the woo-woo, and more about the raw, real and impactful conversations with tangible insights for our guests and community to take action and implement within their daily lives.

What do you mean when you say “women”?

  • Anyone that is female identifying. Inclusivity is one of our core values! We welcome women of all ages, colors, religions and backgrounds. If you are male identifying and would love to attend a dinner, let’s talk.

What’s your cancellation policy?

  • We put a lot of love and effort into these dinners so please do your best to avoid a last minute cancellation. If you need to cancel, try to find a replacement. All cancellations made less than one week in advance can’t be refunded.
