The Good Life
One of two foundational seminars for crafting a better life.
The aim of this seminar is –
To enable participants to explore the most useful perspectives on what has come to be called “The Good Life.” Most people express some level of dissatisfaction with their lives, thinking that a better life or “The Good Life” is what they want. But definitions abound, not only from culture to culture but from person to person. This seminar is not for the purpose of agreeing on a single definition, but exploring the pragmatic possibilities for you of the best definitions that have ever been set forth.
The mantra for this seminar is –
Is it possible to have a good life without being “good”?
The how of this seminar centers on –
Two things: one, how you would defend your own or challenge a classmate’s definition; and two, on how some of the best thinkers who have ever lived have tried to define The Good Life.
What you want is not THE ANSWER but in how to gain the kind of curiosity you need in order to propel yourself into crafting a better life. . .for you.
