Good Life Discussion Group
Meaning & Purpose
WHO’S IT FOR?
Youth who want to explore what it means for them to lead their own good lives.
A weekly curriculum with quotes to prompt conversation into key topics that matter to young people.
In this space and time, many of us are struggling to find a sense of purpose to our daily lives.
We ask ourselves:
- How should I live?
- What is love?
- What is friendship?
- What is my place in the universe?
- Who am I?
The Good Life Discussion group is meant to prompt conversation and insight into what your unique life should look like. Using prompts from great philosophers, a group comes together weekly to discuss what it meant for them and their lives.
It is important to note that the goal of the group is not to impose any one idea or set of ideas on its
members. Instead, the goal of the group is to explore a substantial number of different views and allow
members to discuss and discover what appeals to them. This is a group where there is no right answer, at
least not in the traditional sense. Some will find this to be incredibly frustrating, some will find this to be
incredibly liberating, most will find it to be both, and I suspect all will find it to be useful and relevant.
I will be the first to admit that this group is not comprehensive.
