In March 2020 we launched our free Online Community Discussions to stay connected during lockdown. Since then, we’ve had hundreds of participants from around the globe engage in meaningful discourse and reflective thinking. These programs have become so successful that we continue to offer them for free as one more way to make Touchstones Discussions accessible to everyone.

Whether you’re just getting familiar with Touchstones or you’re a seasoned discussion leader, Online Community Discussions offer a way to practice discussion skills together and build community. We offer a volunteer-led Touchstones Community Discussion from 11am – 12pm EST every other Saturday. 

Spring and Summer program dates are:

  • April 6th & 20th
  • May 4th & 18th
  • June 1st, 15th & 29th
  • July 13th & 27th
  • August 10th & 24th
