Welcome to the Ethical Culture Society of Silicon Valley





We are back to doing some of our events in person, but many are still virtual (using Zoom). Please go to our Meetup page for specific information about each meeting.


Below is a list of our usual recurring events. Make sure to check the Meetup calendar, however, because we sometimes depart from this general schedule, and we sometimes offer additional special events.



Friday Morning Ethics Discussion

First and Third Friday every month, 11am to 12:30am PST

We’ll explore ethical issues of the day. The topic changes for each meeting, so bring issues from your life or the news to share.



Coffee and Conversation

Second Sunday every month, 11am to 12:30pm PST in person at Neutra House in Los Altos

Coffee & Conversation sessions are informal, inclusive, supportive gatherings. We just talk about things that are on our minds, things that make for, or detract from, a fulfilling human life in the real world for ourselves and for other people. We listen to each other, share our thoughts, sip our hot drinks, and enjoy being together.



Wednesday Evening Ethics Discussion

Third Wednesday every month, 7:30pm to 9:30pm PST on Zoom

Join us for discussion of issues related to ethics.



Sunday Spotlight

Third Sunday every month, 11am to 12:30pm PST in person at Neutra House in Los Altos

At our monthly ‘Spotlight’ meeting we invite a speaker to enlighten and challenge us on a topic of ethical relevance to our lives. We invite questions and discussion, and we mix in a little live music, light refreshment, and community sharing.



Video Night

Fourth Wednesday every month, 7:30pm to 9pm PST 

Join us for another video exploring issues related to ethics. We will look into the deeper and more introspective questions in life. The goal of the night is to be inspired and motivated to pursue meaningful virtues in our everyday lives. Suggestions for videos under 30 minutes welcome! 



Ethical Culture Book Club

Fourth Sunday every month, 11am to 12:30pm PST on Zoom

All are welcome, whether you have read the book or not. There is much for everyone to discuss and learn.



Poetry Night

Occasional Weekday Evenings, 7pm to 8pm PST on Zoom

Our thoughtful and talented members and friends share original works, personal favorites, and meaningful observations. All are invited to bring a poem or a short piece of prose to read and offer a few words about how the selection touches or connects to them.
