COVID-19 DISCLAIMER: Over the past year, the group hosted events online using Zoom. We are now slowly transitioning back to in-person meetings (while preserving some online events for those that prefer them). In-person meeting attendees should be fully vaccinated (i.e., vaccine plus booster) to ensure the safety of our fellow Angelinos. Masks are not required if you are fully vaccinated since we are holding meetings outdoors, but they are recommended as a means to foster peace-of-mind. Please be patient and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions. — Justin K.



NEXT REGULAR MEETING!

When: Saturday, June 11th at 9am (until 11am)

Where: If IN-PERSON, we will meet at the Elysian Park Arboretum near the playground. Bring your own chairs or blankets (most of the tables are in the sun, so this will allow us to remain cool in the shade).

What about: We will begin our topic-centered meeting with a discussion on Stoicism and FRIENDSHIP. Please try to do the recommended below.

Reading for this month:
– A handout will be provided with selections from Stoics or influential non-Stoics (Aristotle, Cicero, Stobaeus, Seneca, Epictetus). It will be available here by June 1st.

COVID-19 Safety Measures: The meeting location is outdoors and spacious enough for social distancing. If you are NOT fully vaccinated (with booster) or are feeling ill at all, please stay home and email me. We can still have a thoughtful discussion—perhaps in an online version of the meeting. Those who ARE fully vaccinated with booster are unlikely to transmit COVID in an outdoor setting and are unlikely to get seriously ill if they do. That being said, everyone is welcome to wear their mask and will certainly not be discouraged or judged.

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FACILITATE AN ONLINE VERSION OF THIS MEETING FOR THOSE THAT CAN’T ATTEND IN-PERSON.

See you then! –Justin K.
