We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. – e. e. cummings

We all start life wondering about the world. Somewhere along the way we tend to lose our natural curiosity, and the world becomes more and more about what we know, or don’t know. Our natural instincts to inquire are suppressed.

We invite you to join us in rediscovering, celebrating and developing the free spirit of human inquiry.

We have six realms of inquiry, each with one or more weekly 55-minute online sessions. Join a meeting via computer.

We have a Facebook group, Inquiries of the Social Commons. It’s a closed group, so ask to join. We also have a monthly newsletter, Wondering. Subscribe
