Announcement: “Curious Souls Get Together” – 11th meeting with brunch at Istanbul Sailing Club.


Dear Friends,

Are you fascinated with new ideas and new ways of looking at life? Do you have an insatiable desire to learn more? Do you get immense pleasure in listening to inspirational stories of great minds? And are you filled with appreciation for great talents?

In short, are you a “Curious Soul”?

If you are, then, I invite you to an open buffet brunch  at the  Istanbul Sailing Club, during which we will also have  the 11th meeting of our  “Curious Souls Get Together” meeting. At this meeting, as usual, we will have the opportunity to watch several interesting, mind-stretching and entertaining TED talks and after each talk, we will have the opportunity to express our own views.

So get ready to experience the fleurishing of diverse ideas, to expand our horizons and to grow together while at the same time, we pass a very enjoyable time together.

While I impatiently look forward to seeing you at our 11th “Curious Souls Get Together” meeting, I wish you all, fantastic days until then!

With my kindest regards.

Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

    • Dear Nancy, I am glad that you like our group :-))

      Actually we are an international group. We currently have 648 members from 59 nationalities (on Oct.2,2014)-almost all members reside in Istanbul. We are a non-profit group formed within the context of Internations expat organisation.

      If you would like to form a similar activity group in your region, you are most welcome. Yet, rather than using my “Curious Souls Get Together” name, may I kindly request you to use a different one; something of your own, maybe like: “We talk about TED -Talks.” This would prevent confusions and also you would have more liberty to create and introduce different working structures in your group whenever necessary.

      On the other hand, when you form your group, I would love to follow it and if you would like, I can post announcements in advance, about your meetings in this blog as well. Our members may like to attend one of your meetings in Antalya. I would love to join you once too!

      If you have any questions or would like to discuss about anything, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be very happy to respond. (If you can give me your phone number, I can call you too. My email is:

      Have a great day.
      Best regards.

  1. Please add me (Shai Shahar) to the list of attendees..I am new resident, living in Kadikoy..originally from the States but also long-time resident of Holland.

    • Sure Shai! I am adding you to our list. We will be glad to have you among us-especially now that I discovered visiting your web-site that you have a wonderful voice 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. Hi Isil
    Just wanted to say thanks so much for yesterday.
    Gonul and I both enjoyed it very much.
    I like the way ‘framework of thinking’ linked the two videos together.
    It was also great to briefly get to chat with you. Sorry we had to dash off at the end, will make sure to free up more time for the next one 🙂

    • Dear Martin,

      It was a delight to meet with you and Gonul- especially I will never forget on how you introduced yourself as a newtimer in Curious Souls events :-))))

      I enjoyed very much talking with you, both Gonul and you, and your contributions during the event were invaluable. I hope to see you soon!

      Hope to learn more about Gonul’s cooking classes too.
      Have a great day.
      Best regards
