What we’re about

In this group, we'll explore the Stories that Matter in our lives: From the classics of literature, film, even the stories we tell ourselves about our own lives.

We will approach them several different ways.

Deep Reads: We will regularly select a longer text, and spend months working through it, savoring it.

Shorter Works/Films: Other times, we will select a short text or film to consume in one setting.

Stories of Our Lives: Otherwise, we will find ways to connect around the things that make life worth living.

The organizer, Sean Doyle, is the author of Mud and Dreams; Essays on falling deeper in life (https://amzn.to/2xDQSYQ) and taught positive psychology at NCSU for a decade. Whether I intend it or not, every meeting we will draw from the science of happiness, well-being and flourishing. For more info, see www.JohnSeanDoyle.com
