Monthly global dinners where we explore sensitive and complex topics in a warm, brave and judgement-free space.


Hungry for connection and interesting conversation?

Feb 2024


Conflict is a fundamental aspect of our shared human experience. It can be a catalyst for change, a force that propels us toward deeper understanding. Yet, it also has the power to strain connections and challenge our ability to empathize. Let's talk about how we navigate conflict in our lives.

Resilience is the quiet strength that empowers us to bounce back from adversity and navigate life's challenges with grace. Yet, being overly resilient can prevent us from asking for help.Let's gather to share our stories.

From the long-lasting relationships to the fleeting encounters that leave a lasting impact, feeling connected with other people is a core human need. Let’s come together to share our stories about connection — the moments it flows and the moments we disconnect from one another.

Every month, we gather in cities across the world to discuss a new topic

What can I expect when I attend a dinner*?

* Between Us was originally known as Dinner Confidential.

Strict Confidentiality

Dinner conversations are confidential. Everyone has time to speak in a non-judgemental format.

Warm & Intimate Environment

Each Dinner is focused on one specific topic and lasts about 2.5 hours. We keep the groups small (6-10) to ensure we have time to dive deep into the conversation and everyone has time to share.

Healthy & Delicious Food

We provide healthy and delicious food. You BYOB (wine, flavored water, etc.)

Virtual and In-person

Most dinners are held at hosts’ homes. Some gatherings are virtual. Please check your city page.

Not for profit

Our dinners are donation-based or charged at a small fee to cover the costs. Everyone is welcome regardless of your financial resources.

Trained facilitators & Hosts

Each city's host has been trained to facilitate sensitive conversation in a warm and judgement-free space.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our dinners started just for women (including non-binary folks and transwomen, of course). Nowadays, some of our dinners are for women only and some are open to all bodies. If you are a man and would like to host dinners, reach out! Everyone is welcome here. Please check out your city host page for more information.

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.

Absolutely! Actually, we have found that the richest conversations happen when we have a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. Some of our dinners have 18-year-olds and 80-year-olds at the same table.

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.

Dinners are not for profit. We charge a small fee to cover the food and preparation. Some of our dinners are donation based. If you can’t afford our dinners due to price, please reach out. We will accommodate you. 

For in person dinners, the price includes a healthy and yummy meal. We invite everyone to bring something to drink to share with others.

 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. Please check with your local host to learn about their specific cancellation policies.
