Trust

When we feel trust there's a sense of safety that allows us to open and be ourselves. It is fundamental to relating, and yet, can be hard to establish and so easily broken. How can we cultivate more trust in our lives?

Anger

We all know the feeling. That flame inside of us. Some of us repress our anger. Some of us are driven by it. Either way, our anger is real and valid. Let's explore ways to have a productive relationship with it.

Sexuality

This one of the least talked about but most fundamental aspects of the human experience. When left unexamined, we lose the opportunity to heal, grow, and cultivate deeper pleasure and intimacy in our lives.

EXPERIENCE

What can I expect when I attend a dinner*?

* Between Us Dinners are formerly 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.
