Philosophy Café: Mindfulness

New Orleans Lyceum Philo Café
Saturday, October 8th
Fairgrinds Coffeehouse, 3133 Ponce de Leon, 10:30 to noon.

Mindfulness: What does it mean to be mindful? What are the
benefits of mindfulness? Is Judith Warner
correct that mindfulness meditation leads to extreme
detachment? “… I was beginning to wonder what body snatcher had
taken my cranky friend away and left this kindly, calm, pod person in her
place.”

David was motivated by this model to start his own Lyceum . He started the Lyceum as an independent adult educational center in the mountains of North Carolina in 2000. The school was relocated to New Orleans in 2003. David specializes in conversations around philosophy (philocafes), literature/poetry, and films. He is a visual artist of sorts and has been making forays into the theatre world.
