Dear Curious Souls,
I'm excited to welcome back Danielle LaSusa to lead us in another Buddhism workshop in September, 2018. Danielle is a philosophy professor, a philosophical coach, and co-creator of the philosophical podcast Think Hard.
In May, we immersed ourselves in the central principles of Buddhist wisdom with Danielle. For three fantastic weeks, we grappled with the notion that all the entities of the world (including ourselves) are ever-changing and interconnected. We investigated the causes of human suffering. We worked to find ways to overcome ego-attachment and accept all the different aspects of life. We experimented with meditation, and quieted the "monkey mind." This time around, we will focus on the way Buddhist wisdom relates to our interpersonal relationships, and our dealings with the social-political context in which we live.
We are excited to introduce a new format to our workshops at Curious Soul. We have always emphasized the practical value of philosophy, but this time we will be extending our sessions to add a component called "the Lab." The Lab will allow us to set aside time to (a) reflect individually on how Buddhism can aid us in our personal struggles, (b) devise experiments for the week, and (c) discuss our experiences in a supportive environment.
We welcome newcomers as well as returning students to this workshop. September will come around fast. Register early to save yourself a spot!
