Topic: Wisdom

"Wisdom" won the vote at our 6/19 meeting.

We are meeting on Tuesday, 7/22, instead of Thursday, 7/24, because Barnes & Noble is having another event on Thursday evening.

All members are encouraged to RSVP, but please do so as soon as possible since spots fill up quickly. 

Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP (at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting) to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.

We meet on the second level of the Barnes & Noble store, to the right of the cafe counter area in the back of the store (but not in the cafe itself). You will see a circle of folding chairs (and possibly a folding table) if you walk up to the cafe counter and then look to your right to the back wall of the store.

If all spots for the meeting have been taken, please put yourself on the "notify me" list. Since there has been a little confusion on how the "notify me" list works, here's a brief explanation: Spots are always filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. By putting yourself on the "notify me" list, you (as well as anyone else on the same list) will receive an email to inform you that a spot has opened up, but you still need to be the first person to RSVP for the spot in order to get it. Any member of the group can visit the group's site at any time before a meeting to RSVP for an open spot, but since most members only visit the group's site when they receive an email that announces a new meeting, being on the "notify me" list gives you an advantage since the entire membership is not notified via email when previously taken spots open up again.

I look forward to seeing you!

      I agree, Zora. Lawrence is a good facilitator. In particular, he has an impressive ability to summarize what are sometimes vague comments.

    I enjoyed it. Came with one idea of what I thought about wisdom and left with a much richer conception of what it means to be wise.

    for those intetested in learning there is a branch in Pleasanton of The School of Practical Philosophy. It is a wonderful group of people learning Wisdom from many schools of knowledge.

    I am looking forward to our August meeting in Concord, at the Plaza Towers, on Wednesday, the 6th, The topic should be a challenging one and anticipate learning from many different perspectives.

    Thanks Again Lawrence
