Hello Richmond Consciousness-
I know it has been a little while since my last email. I've decided to send out less emails with more information since you probably get a lot of emails in the first place. Quite a bit has happened since my last update, so this is to catch everyone up.
Like always, I'd first like to welcome the new members to the group, it is a great time to start meeting people with similar interests. I encourage you to jump right in showing up to meetings, or if you are feeling very outgoing- you can make your own meetup!
All in all- welcome. I hope to see each of you soon.
The planning meeting went very well. There were a lot of great concepts that were brought to the table and as a group, we decided to strip down all of the values, purpose, and goals of this group to it's simplest form: friendship. It was almost enlightening when the discussion came to the conclusion: anything more, at this point, is just more.
You've probably noticed that that is what the members are now called, friends.
The roadtrip to UVA also went very well and I am trying to bring the speaker to Richmond for those of you who weren't able to show.
Our new member, Sarah has both created an open discussion Meetup
for this weekend as well as suggesting a possible future Meetup in July
; please rsvp accordingly. Thank you Sarah, for jumping in and being active!
I see this group really as a group of friends despite the fact we may not have met each other. It is the type of group that gives you freedom to make a meeting and talk about what you want to talk about, meet people who are interested in consciousness (an uncommon interest), and have a good time doing so.
I thank each of you for joining, your contributions, and your future contributions.
