Join the Bento Society

Welcome. You’ve come to the right place.

The Bento Society is a community of people who believe life is more than Now Me. People called by a purpose bigger than them.

Together, we practice making decisions that balance the near and long-term and the needs of the people around us. We learn from others who are going through challenges similar to and different from our own. We challenge ourselves to imagine and work towards a better future.

We do it together as members of The Bento Society.

What members say

“It’s a safe space for you to connect, reflect and be thoughtful in a way that I have never experienced before. It’s magical.”

“It literally changed my life. I feel like now I have a focus beyond the present. It makes me think beyond today and see life from another perspective.”

“If you are looking to connect and exchange perspectives with a community of individuals who are curious, empathetic, and open-minded, then this is the place for you.”

Become a member

Our membership model is simple. There's one tier of membership that you pay what you want for. Whatever fits your financial situation works for us. And if you can't pay at all, reach out.
