The goal to better understand how to live a good life accomplished through book discussion group. Started as an experiment in early 2017, we had 9 meetings and the feedback was positive.
The group is generally aimed at adults age 45+
The questions - What is a “good life”? - How do others advocate for finding happiness, contentment and serenity? - Practically, how should one best manage career, family, friendships, community? - What can one learn from others about managing one’s life in their 40s, 50s and 60s - What are different concepts of the meaning of life? - How does one age vibrantly and gracefully?
Members are professionals in the greater Boston area.
