What would you like to get out of NYC Socrates Cafe? How would you define a good conversation?

Remember when you were so excited to be in class and learning something new? Engaging in stimulating discussion? Staying up until 3 am talking about possibilities and theories and poetry? I need a little bit more of that in my life.

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I did- see the introduction. Oh, I cook when I'm stressed. I am a 3am girl living in an 8am world. I meditate on the treadmill- Multitask. Some of my favorite quotes are "to thine own self be true", "more matter, less art" and I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold Which is not really a quote, but a poem by William Carlos Williams.

What specific topic questions would you like to see discussed in this group?

Right now I'm pretty fascinated with the power of mental energy in terms of the transformative changes it can produce in the physical realm. (Jeez, I sound so new-agey. I'm not. I don't now- and will never- own a pair of Birkenstocks.) Serial killers- a given. Specifically the frontal lobe thing. Empaths. What's up with phantom limb pain? Tortured artists; madness and creative genius, you know, the usual.

Would you like to hold your own conversations in public areas on a routine basis? Please contact the Organizer, Yen, at
