There is a school of thought that the wine is often in the kitchen, so maybe that’s why. And there’s often cake… Maybe it’s both but I think it might be something a little bit more.
It’s a Thursday night. The lights are dimmed, there’s a pot of something that smells amazing on the stove and there, in the middle of the kitchen, stands a beautiful old wooden table ready to welcome you.
There are candles, goregous linen napkins, some oracle cards, and maybe the odd crystal here and there. And there’s friends. Friends you know well, friends you have yet to meet, but you all have one thing in common: you all belong here and you’re all courageously leaving your Human Pretzel at the door and bringing all of you to the (virtual) table.
This is a gathering like those that have been taking place around kitchen tables for hundreds of years. From pretty much when humans “began” we have gathered to eat, to share and to celebrate. Humans connecting on a soul-to-soul level.
PS we’re a shoes-off household so please leave those at the door too!
It's our life's work to untangle our Human Pretzels and reclaim our Courageous Rebels and it takes millions of tiny acts of everyday courage to do this my friend. Round the Kitchen Table is a place to do just that. Practise your everyday courage in a judgement-free zone, where all respectful opinions are welcomed, kindness is queen, and we treat each other the way we'd hope to be treated when we're being courageously rebellious.
Round the Kitchen Table is a #nosmalltalk zone! We won't be talking about the weather Joan or where we're going on our holidays Brenda, The Kitchen Table is a place for honest, real and deep conversation and connection. It's a place where you automatically belong no matter who you are or where you come from and all of you is welcome at the table. So bring your deepest secret nobody knows, your hopes and your fears, they're all welcome here.
Since the dawn of time we’ve gathered. We need each other, we rely on each other. In more recent times this has translated into lives rife with comparison, competition, twisting ourselves into Human Pretzels to fit the narrative and has led to higher than ever rates of loneliness and a lack of real community. The truest goal of Round the Kitchen Table is to bring real community to our lives, where we are both individual and group alike.

AS SEEN IN
You’re a bad-ass A-type achiever, yet you still spend a whole lot of time “fitting in” and twisting yourself to do, say and be what is expected of you.
You just want to be yourself! How hard can it be? You know who you are, what you want and how to get it, right? Or you thought you did but lately you’ve been wondering what’s you and what’s your pretzel!
You’re pretty convinced you’re a feminist but what does that even mean? You do know though, that you’re done with the misogynistic, racist BS narrative that runs through every-damn-thing and you want to be part of the solution.
You're ready to do-the-work it takes to start to untangle your Human Pretzel. You’re not all about the “easy” you’re about the “worth it” and you're all in baby!
You need someone to help you take action, to stay on the path and keep taking those steps, even when you’d really rather run back in the house and hide behind the sofa (aka especially when)!
I WANT TO CULTIVATE THE COURAGE NEEDED TO GIVE A LOT LESS FUCKS WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK AND SAVE MY FUCKS FOR SHIT THAT MATTERS!
I'M ready to learn to trust and believe in MYself no matter what, I know it could be a bit vulnerable, but I'M ready anyway.
I'M ready to tear up the “how to be a successful human” blueprint and to write MY own rules from now on!
i'm done with twisting myself around like a human pretzel just to fit in, only to feel like i still don't belong - not really.
My mission at the Home of Belonging is a simple one: I want to help thousands of courageous rebels untangle their Human Pretzel and build a home of belonging within themselves.
We’ve been taught to be Human Pretzels, twisting ourselves into every possible shape to fit in. Conforming to the expectations of others, for their comfort and for us to feel a sense of belonging. But this isn’t real belonging!
Real belonging is being courageous enough to bring all of you every day, no matter what, where and who with. It’s not having your belonging held to ransom by other people’s willingness or ability to accept you as you are. It’s building a home of belonging within yourself and I’d love to help you do just that!
