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, ages, stages, backgrounds, histories and our own uniquely lived experiences.  All women are welcome and have a seat at The Communal Table.  Let's be up to something bigger & contribute to our shared narrative together.
