The Conquest of Happiness - Chapter 15 - Impersonal Interests

Join us as we continue with our book by Russell entitled, "The Conquest of Happiness."  We will be discussing Chapter 15, entitled "Impersonal Interests."  This small volume, first published in 1930 offers the reader, according to the Atlantic Monthly, "a primer of self-regeneration."  According to the Preface by Russell, he has written the book "in the belief that many people who are unhappy could become happy by well-directed effort that I have written in this book."  We are hopeful that our discussions of these writings will prove informative, interesting and perhaps life-changing in making us happier than before.

    Thought about "impersonal interests" today but called them diversions and fun. Went to the Rep (Janis Joplin) and it was a delightful and fun diversion!

    Again, an interesting and informative discussion with great food.

    We took a vacation in August and in September, we will return to having our meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of month rather than the 4th. Hope you can make it!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
