Spirit Talk: What is it and how did it get started?

Nearly two years ago, deep into the “lockdown”, a small group of Village members decided to “meet for coffee” one Saturday afternoon on the Pasadena Village Coffee Klatch Zoom link. A new member had just joined and we all wanted to meet her and learn more about her background and the book she had written.

Our discussion that Saturday afternoon was about religions, spirituality and the mysteries and unknowns of life. It was not the ordinary conversations most people have. We all enjoyed it so much that we decided to meet again in two weeks.

After our second meeting we decided to do this regularly on the second and fourth Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon to explore the wonders, mysteries and marvels of life. We do not proselytize or discuss “merits” of one religion over another nor do we discuss politics. We simply share our views and curiosities without judgement and with respect for differing perspectives. 

Topics for discussion can vary from the healing effects of being in nature, to faith vs. spirituality, to how do we forgive, to space exploration’s effect on our spirituality, to who was the most influential person in our life and why. We never seem to run short of topics to discuss. Everyone has a chance to share and we all offer ideas for topics. While we may not always agree, we are respectful and we do have a lot of fun. Humor always has a place.

Spirit Talk is just an hour of interesting conversation about any topic that appeals to us or interests us. We find it enlarging to discuss beliefs and spirituality without getting into specific religions and doctrines.

Generally there are about eight or so participants. We are always open to new members. If you would like to be notified of future meetings of this affinity group, please let Karen know by emailing her at
