New York IRL: Expansive Conversations – Everyday Delight

Thursday May 16 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Join writer and meditation teacher, Grace Bialecki, for the next episode of a new New York City IRL series, ‘Expansive Conversations,’ where we’ll discuss poetry, authenticity, and self-actualization.

How can we find joy in daily life? Is there a practice to slowing down and noticing or does the joy simply spring from outside of us. At this month’s gathering, we’ll discuss tiny joys in our lives and read from Ross Gay’s Book of Delights where he compiles a year’s worth of essays on this very subject.

There is such a thing as a life changing conversation. One that keeps reverberating with ideas and inspiration rippling through your body long after you’ve stopped talking. Often, these conversations come from unexpected places — a walk with a friend, an article in an old magazine, or a book you never planned to read. In this monthly IRL series, we’ll gather to read and discuss essays on aesthetics, creativity, and the artistic process. Through our conversations, we’ll explore bringing their ideas and new creative practices into our daily lives.

The exact location will be shared via email and in the New York channel of the Interintellect community Discord.
