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!
I'm so excited that you're joining us round the table my friend. Just pop your details in below and you'll get an email with all the joining links and instructions.
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.
HANG ON I'LL GRAB MY BAG...

AS SEEN IN
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 what’s you and what’s your pretzel!
You’re yearning for a place to kick back and just be you. All of you – even the bits you usually hide away.
You’re a Courageous Rebel in Training, committed to doing the work of untangling your Human Pretzel.
Your inner rebel child is still in there, you can remember a time when she ruled the roost but over the years, she’s adopted the “successful humaning” blueprint, but she’s ready to make a comeback.
You’re 100% here to support and share with other womxn and womxn-identifying folx and you’re ready to show up and connect around the table.
I'm In - should I bring wine?
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 start 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 here at the Home of Belonging is a simple one: I want to help thousands of wannabe courageous rebels, untangle their Human Pretzel and belong to themselves. Belonging to yourself is like coming home; home to that cosy chair by the fire, home to your best fluffy socks and home to 100% no bra!
Most of us have learnt to be Human Pretzels, twisting ourselves into all sorts of shapes to fit in. Complying with expectations for the comfort of others, just for us to feel some sense of belonging. But this isn’t real belonging!
Real belonging is being courageous enough every day to be all of you, 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 (the Patriarchy anyone?). It’s building a home of belonging within yourself and I can help you do just that!
