What is Tea Time, exactly?

🍵

Tea Time is where five-ish strangers sit at a cafe with a Host to have a two hour conversation. It's not about anything in particular.

You're meant to know pretty much nothing about the people that come, aside from the fact that they all signed up for this — just like you. It's self-selecting in that sense.

However, it may bring you comfort to know a little something about your Host. If so, just keep reading

Meet your Host, Ryden.

(It'll be helpful to know what they look like when you're looking for a group of confused strangers at the cafe.)

My name Ryden means "explorer of possibilities" and as cheesy as this sounds... I'm looking forward to exploring new conversations with new people (YOU!) to open up a more possibilities together.

What's your story?

A recent story that provides some insight into me overall: After 6 years at a US investment management firm, I wanted to do something in the social impact space. To figure out what that was, I traveled to Kenya for 2 weeks to meet with social impact firms and generally learn about the industry. The conversations lead to more questions than answers. To get a closer look at what was going on, I decided to try out the products (clean water, energy, shelter, etc) these companies offered. I spent the following 6 months literally getting my hands dirty by building myself a house and farm with these "best of" products. Side note... learn from my mistake and don't build a house out of trash despite how cool it may look on google. :p

What might we talk about?

Anything! But regardless of the topic, let's go deep. Instead of just talking about the subject (Current events, philosophy, politics, religion, whatever...), let's also talk about why you have the views you do and how it affects you. This is a chance to get to know eachother.... as humans

Tacos can be "Tea" too!
