The Cosmic Café is now serving Truth, Beauty and Goodness in a town near you!
Looking for a way to share the life giving truths of the revelation? Ready to test your abilities as a Righteousness Recommender? If the answer is yes, the Cosmic Café is for you.
In January of 2005, Thomas Orjala and Aurora Hill put up posters in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho advertising the first Cosmic Café – “A mind boggling menu of delectable dialogue”. The group has been meeting ever since, providing all who come an opportunity to share their views about a broad range of weekly topics such as; Spirit Matters, The Guru in You, The Power of Now, Revelational Influences, Hell and other Hot Topics, Cosmic Citizenship, and, well you get the idea. The goal is to have fun with the subject matter while providing a forum where the light of truth has a chance to shine brightly.
We created the CC as a model that anyone can use in their community to meet other spiritually minded individuals. “The act is ours”, as it says in the book, and what we have found is that it is to our great benefit as the hosts, as well as those participating in the weekly meetings. I have become very adept at sharing the concepts of the revelation as I get to practice for 2 hours every week.
Seven or eight Cosmic Café’s have started in the last year from Canada to Mexico. There are more starting soon, and we keep busy helping those ready to step into the public arena, as the disciples and apostles did 2000 years ago.
We can assist the creation of Cosmic Café’s by sharing our experiences as well as our collection of helpful literature and an attractive poster. Just let us know what you need.
Perhaps finding the Urantia Book was not so much about discovering how to feed our own soul, as discovering how to feed the hungry souls of our fellows.
The act is truly yours.

Here in Winnipeg, Canada, we had a super site to hold the Café for 4 months during the winter, and we faithfully held a café every week, with the attendees being primarily 20 to 30 years of age.
The discussion was always on topic and everyone was very considerate of each other, they (and we) really enjoyed it and the group kept coming back.
Some of the topics we used were Fruits of the Divine Spirit, so one week we talked about Social Progress and another week Moral Satisfaction etc. There are so many ideas of topics that can be related to the spiritual, we always used UB quotes although we didn’t cite them as nobody asked the source. One guy said he really liked the quotes.
Then the owner of the Eatery decided that he wanted to charge us for the use of the space as he was getting busier, so we have been looking for a new place and haven’t held a gathering for quite a few weeks. We are not concerned about losing the interest though, as the concept is fabulous and is so needed in society.

Bill & Share attended a Cosmic Café gathering in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho.
The ages appeared to be from 20s to 60's. It was a way of spreading the teachings of the U.B. as a service, in a non threatening manner. The one we attended was held in a room donated by a private school, one evening each week. The facilitators did an excellent job of keeping the discussion on track. They donate their own time and materials and do not solicit donations except for refreshments.
