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.

October's Topic:

  • "Forgiveness" - We've all been hurt - by our families, friends or colleagues. Oftentimes, the biggest perpetrator is ourselves - our thoughts and actions that cause us harm. And sometimes it feels really good to hold onto that hurt - to stay angry, wounded, clenched and closed down. Maybe we get attached to our pain? Maybe it's our revenge? Or for many, it's our way to feel "safe"? But what does it mean to truly forgive ourselves, others, our circumstances, and why is it important? How does forgiveness impact our relationship with ourselves, the people in our lives, and the world around us? What freedom does forgiveness provide? Let's have a conversation about forgiveness: what it means, how to go about it, and most importantly, what it takes to truly forgive others and ourselves.

During our intimate dinners (5-7 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.

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 Dinner Confidential different from other 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.
