Happy Hour: How Does Happiness Shape Our Lives?

October 26, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Type:
* Informational
* Social

This Event: May be of interest to the LGBTQ community

Happy Hour is a philosophy group that discusses different aspects of happiness in our lives and in the community.

This month we talk about happiness and its definition. What does it mean and how does it shape our lives? Are we SUPPOSED to be happy all the time? We share in these questions and answers as a community – with drinks!
______________________________________________

Philosophy is the pursuit of wisdom. Each person has their own stories and wisdom gained through experience and reflection.

We are inviting people, regardless of education or philosophy background, to engage in a monthly community discussion on varying aspects and thoughts of happiness.
This is a group where people can connect with new people, share their ideas and thoughts, and these larger social issues on the topic of happiness. We believe that through this social discussion group, we can explore new perspectives and understand our community, and our world, better.

We do provide a list of suggested questions at the beginning of each meeting, this is only to provide a framework for discussion, but does they are also not required to answer or discuss. There will also provide a few articles that we will recommend reading prior to the meeting that relate to the topic. However, we do not require that people read these articles. It is simply extra reading for those that would like it.

We will occasionally feature a guest host that works in a field related to the topic, or has a unique perspective to share and discuss.

We meet the last Wednesday of every month at 6pm, starting September 2016 and ending September 2017.

“Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after.”
