MEETINGS

  • Regular meetings occur every 2ND SATURDAY of the month at 9am
  • Theory meetings occur every 4TH WEDNESDAY of the month at 6pm
  • Special meetings occur sporadically (see below)
  • Receive announcements through Meetup or Patreon

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER: Instead of meeting in-person, I am hosting events using Zoom. This is free and easy to use—just RSVP as usual and then follow the registration links below or in the meeting descriptions on Meetup.com. We will begin providing in-person meetings (while also providing online options) when Los Angeles County is firmly in the Yellow Tier (Minimal Risk). In the meantime, stay healthy, avoid catastrophic thinking, keep in mind the ‘dichotomy of control‘, support your small businesses however you can, and protect our vulnerable population by following city and state guidelines. — Justin K.

Note on Book: This is a new book (published in April 2021) now available in paperback and ebook format. I am unable to provide a PDF copy to anyone. I will share as many passages from the book as I can during the meeting so those that do not have the book may still engage in thoughtful discussion.

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS (YOU MAY ALSO INCLUDE QUESTIONS/COMMENTS IN ZOOM REGISTRATION FORM)

In terms of preparing for the main discussion, you may…

  • select a passage or two to share and discuss;
  • think of questions to propose (or answer) and/or
  • edit the slideshow
  • email me in advance at lastoics@gmail.com if you would like to ensure we cover something that you find particularly meaningful.

See you then!
