SOCRATES CAFÉ is Back

Written by Robin Slaw on .

SOCRATES CAFÉ IS BACK and is meeting the 2nd Monday, 7:00-9:00 PM of each month. This month we’ll be meeting on February 13th. Socrates Café provides a forum for people to explore philosophical questions in open and respectful dialogue. In a supportive and confidential setting, participants discuss what’s on their minds and assist each other to learn how to think, not what to think. The group generates questions to pursue with willing participants rotating facilitation. In the group, we will engage in a common quest to discover a better understanding of human nature. From Socrates: “Wisdom begins in wonder.” For more info, please contact Joy Bingham at j4bing@gmail.com.
