The purpose of this Salon is to explore how we, as humans, create a meaningful life. Over the last ten years a variety of fields of study have converged to help chip away at the BIG questions in life. From multiple perspectives, including: psychology, neuroscience, religion, philosophy, and even theoretical physics, a picture is beginning to emerge that WE are the creators of our own meaning.We will hark back to the French philosophical movement in the 17th century, and follow the format of the salon, a causal gathering to refine the taste, and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. Depending on the size, we will likely split into groups small enough to support a productive conversation, watch 2 appropriate TED talks, and then reconvene as a larger social group. Come and explore Creating Meaning and how this impacts a meaningful life.Everyone is a participant and no professional expertise is required, as everyone is 100% expert at your own experience of creating meaning.Bring a snack or alcoholic beverage to share.Coffee, Water and Soda will be provided.Garage Parking in the building is free.Donation tickets are available if you want to contribute to the snack pile.
