Meetup details changed: Humanist Contemplatives January Meetup

Hi everyone :)


1) NEW LOCATION (Don't go to the Borders!)
2) RSVP's so far and Reminder
3) Review of last session
4) Program for this session

There have been some parking, seating, and noise issues at the Borders, so I've decided to move our venue to T? House of Tea at 1927 Fairview Street, Houston 77019 (see their website). I want our meeting place to be in public, and yet be a quiet and somewhat peaceful/beautiful location, and this seems to fit for now. I want some regularity and not to move us around too much, but I'm open to other suggestions that meet these criteria for the future, however. You can see a map to this location either on the event listing at Meetup or on their website.

2) RSVPs and Reminder
Reminding you all that the next session is THIS Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 7pm, is also a function of this message. Between the Humanist Contemplatives Meetup site and the Humanists of Houston site, it looks like we have 4 "yes" and 5 "maybe" for this Wednesday so far. I also hope that Tom and Bob can make it since they were at our last session, since that was the first in our format series format, and which will connect directly into this next one.

3) Review of last Session
Last time we talked about Complexity, or the traits of complex systems theory. You can read a brief summary on our discussion board, but the full handout of this material is now available on our meetup site HERE. It's a good idea to look it over if you can, because in coming sessions, we'll talk about how various ancient philosophies fit into and reference these traits.

4) Program for this Session
Moving on, we'll next be looking more closely at Taoism and Heraclitus. The writings of Heraclitus as he observed the changing flux of Nature are compared with Taoist conceptions of Nature, which recalls what we know about complex systems.

Hope you can make it! :)


If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Maybe" as well as "Yes".)
