Spreading nationwide and into Canada, Conversation Cafés are drop-in community conversations in public places such as cafés, bookstores, or community centers. These conversations are organized and hosted by at least one person who welcomes participants and introduces the Conversation Café process and agreements (the “ground rules”). This process and the agreements create the minimal structure that allows even strangers to quickly get into deep, compassionate discussion. Conversation Cafés attract diverse people wanting to make meaning of the times we’re living through. Conversation Cafés were cofounded and organized by Vicki Robin, bestselling author of Your Money or Your Life, in the summer of 2001 in Seattle.
