In this salon series, Tanya Raj will lead deep-dive discussions on The Prophet by Khalil Gibran and his philosophy on living a life with purpose and meaning.
In this salon, we will delve into what does freedom means to every individual, how does passion plays a part in human consciousness, is reason reasonable, and if pain is an evolutionary necessity rather than being either good or bad.
During the salon, participants will be invited to share and discuss:
- Which part of this philosopher’s teaching resonated with you the most?
- Which of their core beliefs do you believe are still relevant today? Which are not? Why?
We will also leave space to discuss the content of each chapter more generally, specific questions raised by participants, and allow the conversation to evolve in the most insightful way for all.
Please read each chapter in advance of the corresponding salon. The book is a fairly easy read, with each chapter not more than two pages. Please jot down ideas that occur to you or notes about concepts that seem important.
The reading group will be valuable for everyone if we all participate in the spirit of vigorous and open discussion. Please approach your reading and discussion with an open but active mind, and sincere intent.
We look forward to seeing you there.
