Event Description

Feeding Hearts & Minds is a monthly meal and dialogue exploring the intersection of ‘spirituality’ and social change. It’s a chance to reconnect with people, to remember what feeds your work, and to re-engage in strategic and fulfilling ways.

It’s for activists, organizers, artists, nurturers, students, leaders, and those who are still trying to figure it all out. It’s for people trying to find purpose and meaning beyond the limits of consumerism and self-interest. People longing to live out their values in more impactful and effective ways. People deeply engaged in social change work, and tired as heck from it. People who sometimes experience despair at the state of the world, yet keep getting out of bed each morning to make it better.

And, it's for people of all ages. For now we won't be able to provide separate childcare, but we endeavour for the space to be welcoming to children, so if you've got them, feel free to bring them along. 


The last Sunday evening of each month, starting January 29th, 5:30-7:30pm.

At Lakeview Multicultural United Church, on East 12th Avenue, between Victoria Drive and Nanaimo St. (The location is wheelchair accessible, and there is an accessible, gender-neutral bathroom).

Rotating guest speakers telling stories of what inspires and grounds their work for a better world. This month's guest is Claudia Medina. An educator, activist and filmmaker, Claudia has filmed with Nettie Wild, done organizing with the Council of Canadians, and has been part of coordinating workshops on 'regenerating the ecological self'.

Simple and delicious food prepared by a fantastic team of volunteers (with vegetarian/lactose-free/gluten-free options). Music led by talented local folks (singing along invited). Conversation, socializing, conspiring, and some frivolity.
