Stone Soup Ripple
Stone Soup Ripple (SSR) is where creative and curious individuals intersect with compelling content and intentionally-facilitated group participation.
Each of our gatherings is its own unique stone soup recipe… a blend of content, programming and participation that encourages connection, community and ripples that expand ideas, projects, businesses… and lives.
We encourage the exploration of diverse perspectives through active listening and sharing through themed gatherings, screening experiences, workshops and private consulting. Our mission is to create community and ‘ripples’ for individual and collective growth. SSR also provides dedicated forums to enrich and expand group interactions.
So welcome to our world, a world of genuine sharing and connection through an eclectic mix of content that is inspiring, engaging, thought-provoking and fun!
