Conversation Salons

A new initiative to bring different people together for uplifting conversation on a range of topics will begin in Kilkenny in the new year.

Are you tired of small talk and longing for a real conversation? We all know how good it feels when we have a truly satisfying conversation with someone you feel energised, inspired and understood.

Conversation Salons will take place in a relaxed 'café-style' setting over tea and coffee. Attendees can choose from a conversation menu of thought-provoking questions, such as: 'Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone- True or false?' 'How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?', 'What makes your heart sing?'

The aim is to have friendly, welcoming events to meet new people and get to hear different opinions and ideas. Come along to chat, and be inspired by different ideas. The events will be hosted by life coach Heather Bourke.

The first event is being held as part of the First Fortnight Festival, promoting positive mental health. It takes place on Friday, January 5 at 5.30pm in Loughboy Library, Loughboy Shopping Centre.

Booking is essential, by contacting the library on 056-779 4176. For further information, contact aisling.kelly@kilkennylibrary.ie or call 056-7794160.
