Are you looking for an opportunity to have a conversation that goes beyond, "How's it going?" and "What did you do this weekend?" 💡

Come on out to Lunch & Learn with Rumie, our weekly "bite-sized book club". The reads are only ~5 minutes long (Bytes from the Rumie library) that spark a meaningful conversation! 🔥

Join Us On Discord

To get started on your Lunch & Learn journey you'll need to join the Rumie community on Discord.

Think of the community as a social extension of the Rumie library (where you are now!)

It's a virtual space where you can browse more content, and chat with other community members to receive or provide support on life and career skills topics.

How Does It Work?

It's easy, and you need fewer than 10 minutes to prepare for Lunch & Learn! Here's how it will go down:

  1. We pick a Byte from the Rumie library and announce it in the #📚lunch-and-learn channel on Discord, along with a few questions to get you thinking.

  2. You read the Byte: it'll take <10 mins! 📖 But if you run out of time it's ok, come anyway. 😊

  3. You join the voice chat in the 🔊server-events channel at the time of the session and participate in a conversation inspired by the Byte!

When you forget to read the Byte (but you have 5 minutes to spare!)

What Will We Talk About?

During the actual session a Rumie community administrator will be present to facilitate the conversation, making sure everyone is safe and has a chance to contribute if they wish. Ultimately though, the conversation is community-led and the Byte is just a starting point to get the ideas flowing!

For example, at a Lunch & Learn session on setting boundaries in your relationships these questions were our starting point:

  • When did you not set a boundary but now you wish you did? What did you learn from the experience?

  • Which of the 6 types of boundaries discussed in the Byte are most challenging for you to set?

  • What's a boundary you'd like to set this week?

When's The Next One?

We meet every week: Wednesday at 12-12:45pm EST! 📅

Each month we'll pick a new theme and add the month's Lunch & Learn sessions to Eventbrite. Register there to get reminders leading up to the event and easily invite a friend to join! 💌

You can also sign up for notifications in the #🎭server-roles channel on Discord: you'll get a "ping" any time @Lunch & Learn is mentioned by a server administrator.
