Event description



**Dinners are now Virtual and donation based**

Dinner Confidential is a safe and inclusive space for womxn / female-identifying folk to listen to each other's stories with deep vulnerability and confidentiality. Our mission is to spark a deeper sense of belonging because when we really feel we belong, we gain the courage to make positive change in our lives and our world.

Each month we investigate a different social topic globally (we are in over 22 cities around the world!) 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.

Spring Topics

  • Thur, June 18th --> "Fear" (in English) - At the core of so many of our darkest, most painful emotions lives fear. Some of us are afraid of flying, others of being alone most of us fear death. We fear what we can't control. When we are scared, the fear can take over our minds and bodies - it can paralyze us, blind us, and can compel us to act in ways that aren't caring or compassionate to ourselves and others. And yet, some say our greatest fears mask our greatest power. But what does that even mean? Let's have an honest discussion: What is at the core of our fear, how does it show up in our lives, and how do we cultivate a greater level of awareness, and even compassion, with fear in our lives?

  • Thur, July 16th --> "Guilt" (in English) - It keeps us up at night. Endlessly ruminating over what we thought, did, or said that was "bad" or "wrong." Maybe you lied, cheated, or stole (anyone?). Maybe you said something that hurt someone else, and you feel awful about it. Maybe it's the guilt you feel for carrying a dark thought inside of you. Whatever it's source, guilt can seriously affect our sense of self-worth. So, let's have an honest discussion: What role does guilt play in our lives? And how can we release it and make room for more nourishing thoughts and feelings in our lives?

**While everything said at dinner remains strictly confidential, there are a few exceptions to this rule. Specifically, we may disclose confidential information when we judge that there is a strong possibility of serious harm being inflicted by you on another person or on yourself. In these instances, local mental health professionals may be contacted. Please keep in mind that Dinner Confidential is a safe space for women to come together and share their stories, but is not a replacement for therapy. Upon request, we have a rich resource list of local therapists, hotlines and therapy groups for any interested guest.

During our intimate dinners (6-8 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.


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?

  • Currently - donation based

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 “womxn”?

  • 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 cancelation 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.
