The Wisdom of Resilience

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

San Diego Oasis, In Person Only, 5500 Grossmont Center Drive Suite 269 , La Mesa, CA 91942

Growing older means letting go, but it also means saying hello to a whole host of new experiences, perceptions, opportunities, and insights. In more ways than one, our sunset years are a second childhood – an opportunity to view the world anew, with new eyes, and to slip deeper into a sense of wonder and appreciation. But it takes resilience to stay joyful in the face of the facts – our waning abilities, the loss of loved ones, and the dawning awareness that we can’t wait until later to be happy – we have to choose it now. Join us as we comb through the world’s wisdom traditions for tools we can use to cultivate the resilience needed to remain conscious of the beauty and wonder of being alive.


The Great Philosophers: Kant

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

San Diego Oasis at Rancho Bernardo, 17170 Bernardo Center Dr., Rancho Bernardo, CA 92128

Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) took it upon himself to repair the rift between rationalism and empiricism in startling ways, and ever since Kant, we’ve been arguing about whether or not he pulled it off. But one thing’s for sure, Kant left behind a towering body of work upon which all modern philosophy is built. Particularly impactful is the way he grounded moral philosophy in metaphysics. Ethical determinations, Kant argued, are best anchored to logical calculations instead of being left to the vagaries of the heart. Morality, he claimed, was our birthright and our moral obligation. Join us in this inquiry to learn just how much of our modern worldview is rooted in the philosophy of Kant.
