Dear Juanita,
We thank you, since the very first cafe idea. All your works and books have inspired us.

Especially nowadays, I think It is the most we need, even it is a small step but we hope it is going to serve to create environment for understanding the importance of dialogues and collective intelligence, especially for today's world, regionally or globally !!

The 'coffee pot' is so important in preparing the Turkish coffee, it should be from copper and the fire should be so slow to be tasty :)

We are again happy being part of the family. Thank you.

Dear Amy Hi,

I tried to contact with you several times but it did not happen, someway. Anyway, I hope you are all doing well. We are fine and it is 1,5 years ahead and almost 23 person as Facilitator (i.e. per table) which is not bad for today but still need more practice and experience. Up to now we did 20 meetings, 7 of them were full-day 'cafe meetings' (practice) and the rest were pre/post-evaluation meetings named as 'coffepots' :)

As I promised before (sorry for being late), to send you the turkish version of the 7 integrated principles and methodology, now they are ready and you can find them both in jpg or pdf formats in our web site (aok). In case you need the high quality versions, just let us know, then we can send them directly to your email, if needed.

Warm regards,

Hi Amy,

We are in the process of preparing and sharing an outline about how to be member here to Anatolian Learning Cafe in the World Cafe Community for our people here. 

We will discuss with the members of our community here about keeping the exchange fresh and alive.

Do you have ideas for how to involve the community here - add members to your group and keep the exchange fresh & "alive"? I'd love to hear them!

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your good wish.

We had founded the group here about six months ago, however we just activated it with Memet Ali Kaya a few days ago in parallel with the birth of the web site of Anatolian Learning Cafe (
