What we're about

"May ❤️ break the border of politics, religion, race, culture etc and make our world truly great!"

, please keep it on top as it will make positive impact to the world in long term! ✌️ Love can do miracles, you just wait and see! ==========================================================================================

Our group is very inclusive(Investors, Entrepreneurs, professionals, art lovers, music lovers, singles, techies, newcomers, travelers, students, volunteers, ...), we welcome anyone who loves the city and want to bring more positive changes to it!

Here is a chance to meet thoughtful people who feel passionately about the deep and meaningful things in life. The group invites like-minded people to engage in lively discussion on a broad range of intellectual topics. Everyone is welcome - just bring your point of view and willingness to share it in a spirit of open mindedness, and a sense of humour.

If you are craving some good Meaningfull Talks and want to communicate and learn from other people's perspectives, please join us. We attempt to:

- actively listen, consider and respond rather than react. Pauses in the discussion are valuable, giving participants time to reflect;

- keep an open mind. Do not fixate exclusively on your own points of view;

- if possible, vary your content to mix first-hand (personal experience) with second-hand (facts/stats) knowledge;

- balance 'deep and serious' content with 'light and interesting' dialogue. We like to have fun too;

- stay invested in the conversation, even when you don’t agree with what is being said;

- we value your presence but ask that all participants switch their mobile phones to “Airplane Mode” for the duration of the meetup... swipe up or down on your phone to display the controls, then tap the airplane symbol. Using your phone as a notepad for ideas is fine.

A Day on the Self- A full day of talks exploring the science, psychology & Self.

We have lot of people coming from other Meetup & we have Limited Tickets- Click The Link to book- http://bit.ly/2LMnaKy A full day of talks exploring the science, psychology and evolution of the Self. Have you ever felt you went beyond your ordinary self and felt connected to something bigger than you? In a 2016 UK survey, over 84% of respondents (including atheists, agnostics, Christians, and Buddhists) said yes to this question. So what’s going on? In the complex web of modern life, we’re conditioned to embrace our rational minds and spend every second of our conscious hours in search of opportunities and threats. We are encouraged to get ahead, win friends, influence people, attract praise, avoid blame and generally focus on satisfying the individual everyday ego. Indeed, the idea of a “self”, as a unique and coherent individual, has existed ever since humans began to live in groups and become sociable. But is this egoic view of ourselves scientifically accurate? Or is there something more to the human experience? And could our most basic assumptions about who we are be wrong? In this series of talks, we explore the psychology of the ‘Self’, drawing on perspectives from Jungian psychology, neuroscience and the work of Aldous Huxley - to question our most basic assumptions about who we are, and our place in the world. We have lot of people coming from other Meetup & we have Limited Tickets- Click The Link to book- http://bit.ly/2LMnaKy Lectures & Speakers Aldous Huxley & Self Transcendence - Jules Evans Jules Evans is Policy Director at the Centre for the History of Emotions at Queen Mary, University of London and a leading researcher into ecstatic experience.

Carl Jung & Individuation - Dr Kevin Lu Dr Kevin Lu, PhD, is Director of Graduate Studies and Director of the MA Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies in the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex. Dr. Lu’s publications include articles and chapters on Jung’s relationship to the discipline of history, critical assessments of the theory of cultural complexes, and Jungian perspectives on graphic novels and their adaptation to film. The Evolution of the Self - Will Storr Will Storr is an award-winning writer. He’s the author of five critically acclaimed books, including the novel The Hunger and The Howling of Killian Lone. His journalism has appeared in The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The New Yorker and The New York Times.
