face-to-face conversation

BreakBread World is…

A Community

that delightfully practices the art of mindful conversation for the purpose of cultivating deep meaningful nourishment.

A Practice

that builds stronger communities by exercising our capacity to intentionally show up and listen, think, and empathize with one another.

A Platform

that facilitates the creation and management of small, intentional gatherings around the globe.

A Belief

that meaningfully breaking bread creates deep, powerful, tangible (yet intangible) attunement that resonates throughout our cultural fabric.

BreakBread World is the dream of building a more deeply connected world through mindful conversation every day!

“We’re all human at the kitchen table.”

“It’s not about ideology or dogma. It’s a search for purpose, community and identity.”

“Our differences are our strength as a species and as a world community.”

How Does BreakBread Work?

Receive an invite

A friend extends a personal invitation to BreakBread with new and old friends over a carefully crafted prompt. They ask you to commit with vigor* and invite a friend! Get invited.

Invite a friend

Dinner is better with friends. You extend the same invitation to one of your friends.

BreakBread

Be nourished by an intimate evening (5-7 dinner-goers) weaving meaningful conversation and food.

Savor

Reflect on what you learned and how deeply you were heard and seen by new and old friends. Ask yourself how you can get more of that and wait to be invited again.

Host

Perhaps feel inspired to host dinner yourself! If so, we invite you to our community!

Mindful conversation is the practice of being more present, listening more deeply, and being more in relationship with others.

It is a practice of building intimacy through curiosity, weaving connections, witnessing one another, and building empathy. Mindful conversations feel good and deepen bonds with self and others.

At its core, it is exercising that muscle commonly referred to as an
open heart.

Mindful Conversation Prompts

What does honor mean to you? Does honor or acting honorably matter?

What have you learned from your family that sustains you to this day?

What does radical mean for you in your life, at this point?

When is compromise acceptable and when is it not? Where in your life have you compromised to your benefit or detriment?

How has faith served you or failed you in your life?

What Guests Are Saying

This is the best thing I’ve done all year!

“BreakBread conversations stay with me for weeks.”

“If you’re not building community you’re not building trust.”

BreakBread…all over the world!
