I've labeled this group a "project" because it's more than just a discussion group about psychology. This group is only limited by the creativity of our members. This group's mission is to learn as much as we can about ourselves and our minds. There are many ways to do that, however, beyond discussion. For example, talking about mindfulness before actually experiencing mindfulness is often not as useful as experiencing it and then discussing it. One of our group members may have an interest in something like mindfulness and decide to bring an exercise to the group that we could all do together before we discuss the topic.
I absolutely love exploring psychological concepts such as love, self-compassion, defense mechanisms, motivation, creativity, intuition, etc. These are all concepts that improve the way we interact with the world as we learn more in depth about them. I will at times bring self-help books or other psychology-related books or articles to discuss various concepts in them, and I would encourage others to do the same. Hope to see you Life Long Learners there ("There", being coffee shops parks, people's homes, I'm open to suggestions 😊).
For those of you who would like to take a more active role in our group, I am always looking for helpers to meet with me in-between official meetings! Just contact me at Joey2ii@gmail.com if you are interested.
Oh and I just started a FaceBook page that we can all connect at, whether it be for planning our official meetups, finishing processing something we learned from a past meetup, or just plain supporting each other, feel free to join!
