Susan Neiman: Facing Life
In this workshop we will start exploring the book, "Why Grow Up?" by Susan Neiman. She argues that our culture's obsession with youth has lead most of us to live in a perpetual state of adolescence that sees growing up as a downhill process. She argues for a model of maturity that helps us find courage in a world of uncertainty. All are welcome! Please read the first two chapters (or read as much as you can). You can get this book at any local used or new bookstore as well as online. I hope to see you there!

    What we're about

    This group is for anyone interested in examining and improving their lives. An art of living workshop is a place where we can come together and reflect on our lives using philosophy, literature, art, and poetry. As moderator, I facilitate these discussions through probing questions and thought provoking exercises with the goal of applying what we’ve learned to our own lives. Some workshops are designed for identifying and exploring the principles and values we want to guide our lives, and others are tailored to specific existential issues that we inevitably face throughout our lives, such as love, family, friendship, work, happiness, loneliness, and death. I agree with Socrates that the unexamined life is not worth living and that we have an obligation as human beings to do this throughout our lives. These workshops provide the intellectual and emotional space to do this.
