Southport, CT – The Trinity Spiritual Center invites the public to join a generational dinner conversation on the importance of love in these difficult times.
Part of the nationwide “Generations Over Dinner” movement, this special event will be the second dinner party in Southport, led by Michael Hebb, who the New York Times calls “underground restaurateur and provocateur.” The dinner, which will take place on Sunday, January 29, between 17:30 and 19:30, is open to everyone. The importance of close relationships will be the main theme of the night.
“Love Is Actually All Around Us” is Hebb’s latest project that uses the dining table as a mainstay for cultural exchange. Last year, tickets for the Trinity Spiritual Center’s “Let’s Talk About Death (at Dinner)” talk sold out. Over the last 10 years, more than a million people worldwide have attended Hebb’s dinner parties.
Throughout the evening, Hebb will engage participants in a deeply engaging conversation about the many ways intimacy and connection can transform our lives. After this highly interactive discussion, at a family-style dinner, participants will begin to share how love has changed their lives. The mix of generations around each table will bring each age group’s perspective on the subject.
“Generation Z, Millennials, Baby Boomers, and Silent Generations can all benefit from better understanding each other’s love lessons,” said Mark Grayson, Director of the Trinity Spiritual Center. “Don’t you know what a ‘state ship’ is or what ‘this magic moment’ means? This is your chance to close the gap.”
Welcome. No connection with Trinity is required.
Hebb is the Founder of www.Deathoverdinner.org, www.Drugsoverdinner.org, and EOL.community, whose writing has appeared in USA Today, GQ, Food and Wine, and many other publications. Hebb is also the co-founder of Convivium, a creative agency specializing in changing culture through thoughtful food and discourse-based meetings. Convivium’s client list includes: The Obama Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, TEDMED, The World Economic Forum, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative, X Prize Foundation, The Nature Conservancy.
“We are excited to help create a national movement that promotes shared wisdom,” says Michael Hebb. “There is no doubt that intergenerational connection and collaboration can truly change the world.
In addition to the Trinity Spiritual Center, partners participating in Generations Over Dinner include: Academy of the Modern Elderly (MEA). Growth and Education Association (AGE), Longevity Stanford Center, Esalen Institute, encore.org, Old Dominion University, University of Denver, soho houseand more.
“Last year’s ‘Let’s Talk About Death (Over Dinner)’ was so successful we knew we couldn’t stop here,” Grayson says. “Michael’s provocations demonstrate the importance of bringing inquisitive minds together to have important conversations. It will be great to see what wisdom an 80-year-old shares with a 21-year-old, and just as importantly, what new curiosities someone else shares.” A 21-year-old can share to inspire an 80-year-old on January 29th. Come join us for another great discussion!”
