Managing Emotions

“I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”
- Oscar Wilde

 

  • What is your relationship to your emotions?
  • Are you a slave or a master when it comes to managing your emotions?
  • What are the connections between emotional mastery, freedom, wisdom and happiness?


There has been so much great work done on empowering oneself through the mastery of emotions that I thought this would be an ideal topic for our group. This event will be an opportunity for us to explore wisdom and insights from some of the great philosophers of the past and present, as well as a forum for us to share our insights, theories, thoughts, and experiences.

 

No formal philosophy experience or specialized knowledge is required to participate in any of our events (either as a facilitator or as a regular guest). All that is required is that you are open-minded and respectful of your fellow guests. :)

 

Venue Information

The venue choice for this event was based on the discussion board which was made available to all members prior to the event:

Facilitator Information

As previously mentioned, our members take turns helping to facilitate our discussions. We require one discussion facilitator for each table of 6 people but I doubt that we`ll have a problem finding volunteers. I`ve created a special video just to explain what is involved with facilitating our discussions.

  • Don't be shy to sign up to this event since I'll cancel if less than 6 people sign up.

      Sorry just saw this. I think I should have messaged you my question about my partner coming. Anyway please see about and let me know your thoughts.

    • Glen B.

      It doesn't look like there is space for your partner since there are 7 people on the waiting list and there are limited spots.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
