PLEASE NOTE: Due to to overwhelming demand and some unfortunate space constraints at Cafe 28, the location for our first meetup has been switched. We're going to take advantage of the beautiful weather forecast for Saturday (70s and cloudy) by holding our discussion outside in central park at Sheep Meadow. Please bring blankets, chairs, yoga mats, or whatever else you'd like to sit on. Also feel free to bring food and drinks if you like!
I look forward to meeting each of you and hearing your thoughts!
The meetup runs as follows:
1) The moderator selects one subject for discussion and a date for the meeting. Subjects can be as ephemeral as "love," "god," and "purpose," or as grounded as "politics," "environmentalism," and "family."
2) At the meetup, people are encouraged to propose a question related to the subject. The moderator will collect all of the questions in a list.
3) The group will then vote on the questions. In the first round of voting, each individual may vote for as many questions as they like. The top three will then go to a second round, where each individual may vote just once.
4) The question with the most votes is then discussed. Often, the discussion starts with a narrowing of the question, as it can be challenging to devise a question that can possibly be answered by a small group in just a couple of hours' discussion.
