Living well:

a core collective workshop through Krista Tippett's Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living

(Thursdays October 5th - November 30th from 7:30PM-9:30PM)

Third Window Brewing Co. Patio 406 E Haley St #3, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

This 8-week series will be the next step of communal preparation as we move toward a more official launch of the Way Collective at the beginning of Advent. This book is one of the best books we’ve read in the last 10 years, and almost no resource speaks so directly to the changes that are afoot in translating Christianity and religion for our time. Krista’s insight and depth of wisdom will inform a study through 5 main topics: Words, Flesh (Body), Love, Faith, and Hope. These conversations will be a more in-depth look at the Jesus Way we are all being invited into: a way of artful living committed to connection, contemplation, critical thinking, creativity, and compassionate action for the 21st century.

This will be much more than a book study. Our gatherings will continue to reflect our core practices and values while deepening our collective understanding of what it means to live well for common good in our community in our time. If you have loved being a part of Dinner & Dialogue series, or have a piqued curiosity about who we are, then this will be right up your alley. We hope that you’ll consider being a part of the core community at the Way Collective as we move forward and commit to not only these 8 weeks with us, but also what they are building into: a space for all people in the greater Santa Barbara area to find a spiritual community that welcomes all and inspires them to deepen peace and live well for the common good.

Dinner & Dialogue: 5 practices & values

(Thursdays August 31st - September 28th from 7:30PM-9:30PM)

Third Window Brewing Co. Patio 406 E Haley St #3, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

This was our opening series for the Way Collective. We met to eat, engage new ideas, and explore our core practies and values. We conversed about Connection, Contemplation, Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Compassionate action and how we can impact the community of Santa Barbara by living well together for the common good.

These five gatherings set the tone for our collective future and built in to a new Collective Conversations series in which our core community will dive even deeper in to living well by studying Krista Tippett's Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living. We look forward together to a more official launch of our weekly gathering at the beginning of Advent.
