First, just a reminder to come check out the next Stoicism Winnipeg Meet-Up. If it’s your first time coming down I’d recommend you RSVP to increase your likelihood of finding us 🙂
Sunday, Dec 9, 9:30 AM
Topic: Stoic Mindfulness and Resilience Training Session 1
Location: A table as close to the Fools & Horses Coffee Bar as we can get
We will discuss some of the themes & lessons presented in the SMRT course to date. If you are not actively enrolled in the course, you are still welcome (and encouraged!) to attend and join the conversation!
Second, starting in February we will begin having discussions about books selected by members of the group. They won’t all be “Stoic” books. But, they will generally be from topics that are primarily of interest to Stoicism. Books on thought, morality and science.
The first pick is The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt.
Per the Righteous Mind web site… “Buy the Book. It’s so totally worth it. Don’t you want to understand why people believe weird stuff and don’t respond to logic and push for misguided policies which will ruin the nation?”
Here is a link to the introductory chapter.
This should make for some interesting conversation! Pick up a copy of the book and come out to one or more of our February meet-ups (dates TBD) for discussion.
