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 thisΒ β€” 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, Magdalena.

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

Hi there, I'm Magdalena and I love listening, talking, discussing, debating, storytelling, deliberating, conversing and all the other varieties of thought exchange between people. I am looking forward to meeting you!

What's your story?

I've been in Berlin for over 2 years and I prefer all the things I am by choice over those I am by birth, but since I've heard you cannot become a Berliner by choice, I'll go with ""I am from Central Europe"". I love stories, cold and green countries, books, mental models, the Guilty Feminist podcast, my Pocket account, technology, slightly crazy singer-songwriters, dogs, mountains and I absolutely cannot cook. Professionally, I build companies, products and services for other, larger companies, and I went to art school, which probably shaped some of my thinking. I also have a loud and talkative family, which shaped other parts of my thinking and the volume at which I speak.

What might we talk about?

No small talk and personal facts are necessary, unless they are relevant to the stories you tell, so I won't ask you where you're from or what you do. Bring experiences that moved you, reflections you had about your family, questions you're afraid to ask your friends, proposals you want to make to your coworkers or anything else that might seem risky in other settings. My favourite questions heard at Tea so far have been "How do you make decisions", "Describe a magical music experience" and "Can you break up with a friend". Some specific topics I love to talk about are sustainability, morality, effective altruism, pop culture and human culture in general, so feel free to also bring thoughts about those, but I will do my best not to force them on anyone.

"People make choices, and choices make history." If you know who said this, please tell me, as I love it and don't know.
