We are launching our first, regularly scheduled philosophy community philosophy gathering and we will learn together, pivot and have fun reading and having philosophical dialogue. 

What: Community Philosophy Gathering

Where: 8505 NE Fremont St.

When: First Wednesday's at 4:30pm

For our first gathering we'll launch out with a selected reading and discussion from Epictetus an early Stoic philosopher who taught that philosophy isn't about ideas but a way of life that extends past theory and into practice. To Epictetus, all external events are outside of our ability to control them. As a result we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. However, we retain our personal agency and remain responsible for our actions. With work we as individual members within a community should examine and work to a life of flourishing.

I'm excited about examining stoic teachings and we want to be a part of a flourishing community.
