Our Vision

The Communal Table Santa Barbara is a space for women to gather, share a meal and discuss topics that are important, relevant and interesting. 

Together we will create a place to share stories, explore different areas of thought, process new ideas, expand our worldviews and build bridges within our community.  The Communal Table Santa Barbara is for bringing women together and lifting each other up.  Together we will generously listen and hear from women with different perspectives, circumstances, ages, stages, backgrounds, histories and our own uniquely lived experiences.  All women are welcome and have a seat at The Communal Table.  It is my desire that through authentic and vulnerable explorations of varied discussion topics we will grow in our capacity to connect and relate deeply with others. I want to bring back the "art of conversation" by creating a space for women to practice "being comfortable getting uncomfortable," one meal at a time.
