Ways to get involved

Orientation Calls

Want to maybe get involved? Here is the place to start! This call is a friendly, casual, low-pressure introduction to Intentional Society. We'll introduce ourselves, get some details on what makes Intentional Society what it is, and see what resonates between us. Interested attendees can then get a guest pass to the next community session, on their way to membership. Bring your video camera (phone is okay), microphone, and any questions you might have.

Click here to register for our next orientation video call on Saturday, December 16th at 1:00-1:55pm Pacific Time (4pm Eastern, 9pm UTC).


Want to follow along with what we're doing and learning? Regardless of whether active participation in Intentional Society is a fit for you, you're welcome to stay informed with this weekly newsletter. Once each week (usually Thursday) you'll receive a short update sharing about our recent experiences and pondering what's next for us.

Follow @IntentionalSoc on Twitter if that's your thing. Shares some newsletter content in tweet form, and asks some philosophical questions. Not a nag/reminder stream. Also a handy way to simply refer to Intentional Society in tweets, even if you don't follow the account.


Right now membership means "regular participant" - we're not formal about it. People who have attended an orientation call and a general session receive access to our internal mailing list and our community Discord server.

General Sessions

These meetings are the main heartbeat of what we do in Intentional Society. These run three-month "seasons" with one quarterly week off. Don't worry if you miss the kick-off - we have easy on-ramps throughout the whole cycle, so you can join in at the right time for you.

General sessions happen on Sundays, 1:00-2:45pm Pacific Standard Time (4pm Eastern, 9pm UTC). (Once again, the meeting link is private and provided after an orientation call.)

Our historical timeline contains a record of our meetings and topics.

Meta Meetings

We include "meta time" in some of our general sessions, but this is where further behind-the-scenes steering, strategy, and governance support happen. Attendence is open to any member, as we work "with the garage door open". These currently happen on Mondays, 1pm Pacific Standard Time (4pm Eastern, 9pm UTC) but occasionally bounce around to different times.

One-to-one Connections

Opt-in self-led contacts and calls between Intentional Society members outside of our sessions. Get to know some folks better and hear the stories behind the faces.
