If not already stated in your introduction - please state your reason for being part of this group (required to join). Do you have any ideas for topics? (Optional)

I am a seeker, and like to share my insights. I read on a number of topics some philosophical in nature, e.g. ethics, hummanism, history of thought, science so I am interested in the topics selected and whether this forum will be satisfactory. I tend to read more when it is topically driven and a date to discuss. I need this discipline to get away from the TV and the passivity that ensues.

Our members take turns being discussion facilitators (one facilitator at each table of 6 people). Please confirm with a "yes" that you are willing to help out on occasion (notes are provided).

We will see if this structure works for me. If I like it and it is stimulating and the people interesting and intelligent... I will get more involved and volunteer.

Please confirm that your MAIN profile picture clearly shows your face. We encourage this in order cultivate a sense of community in our group. If you would prefer to not show your face, then please at least provide your first name.



Marty Shoemaker A member of BC Humanist Association. I find facilitated groups with participants who are prepared to dive into philosophical topics very engaging.
