You don’t need to have read Plato's Symposium before you attend. We will read the story, reenact some of the scenes, and wonder together. We’ll also do a workshop where Skye will guide you through writing exercises to create your own speech on love, and you’ll have the opportunity to present them after dinner. Speech giving and intoxication are both optional.

This is our gorgeous home up in Wassaic, NY. We hold weekend seminars and welcome members of our scenius for creative residencies and projects. It is located less than a 20 min walk from the Metro North station in Wassaic and 2 hours from Grand Central. We are the proud neighbors of the Wassaic Project.
Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
