The people who thrive in life, those who climb apple trees into their 90’s, and have a sense that their lives matter, have certain things in common. They get out and move. They give themselves over to something bigger, they have something to wake up for every day. They know how to take things into perspective so they can undo or avoid stress. They drink wine, eat with friends, and savor both the food and togetherness. The people who live the longest and flourish and love life connect with one another to share, celebrate and be grateful. Living Fully is not a book club, but every meeting we discuss poetry, literature, philosophy and positive psychology. It is not a hiking group. But often we will meet on the trials, mediate at sunrise, or bring our friends and children to the park to toss a Frisbee, have a glass of red wine, and share the joy of life. Each month, we’ll plan a micro adventure and discover the worlds that exist outside of our 9:00 to 5:00 workdays. Because Living Fully is not confined to specific hours of the clock. We will meet at films, lectures and art openings. We will go to the local brew pubs, and get together to do good work for the community, like clean the waterways or care for the vulnerable. In short, Living Fully is about immersing ourselves deeply and intimately with life. It is for singles, for families, for our wizened elders. It is for everyone and anyone who wants to recover a reverence for living. Each Lover of Life wants to try new things, immerse themselves fully into the world, and connect around things that make life worth living. The organizer, Sean Doyle, teaches positive psychology at NCSU. Every meeting we will draw from the the science of happiness, well-being and flourishing. For more info, see www.JohnSeanDoyle.com
