Connection through Conversation

A lighhearted and enjoyable conversation group

Live via Zoom


Our ability to connect with other humans has been seriously diminished particularly in Melbourne over the last few months! So this is a space for open and easy conversation! 

Each week a different topic will be up for discussion. 

Week 1 - 11/09/20: Spring Celebration.

What's your favourite thing about Spring? Perhaps it's the flowers, the warmer weather,  even the wardrobe change! Maybe it's the just the different feel in the air that you can't quite put a name too! Think about it and come along for a chat.

Week 2 - 18/09/20: What I've learnt over the last 4 months.

This might be that you really enjoy a particular pastime or tv show or even a food. It might a new skill or something you've realised about a family member or neighbour even! There are no wrongs or rights with this as long as we keep things positive!

The aim is to positively support people, with an emphasis on effective communications and to challenge the way mindfulness and meditation are perceived in the general public domain.

Her corporate experience covers more than 20 years in client services, relationship management, leadership and mentoring. 

Here Now Group values the impact of philanthropic work and has a firm pro-bono quota. This enables the company to offer its services free of charge to a number of not-for-profit organisations and charities.

Thought provoking and engaging course that was a good inspiration to open up in conversation. Presenter was very professional and the content was presented in a casual and informative way.
