Jeffrey Kripal is a legendary figure in consciousness studies, going back decades.

Improv Your Life with Pippa Evans

Improv is known as a hilarious way to create comedy content, however, it is also an excellent personal and collective intelligence tool. Improvisation creates a space where we explore our ideas to the very limit of what we think is possible and experiment with how to be an individual amongst the collective. In this session we will explore building on each other's ideas, giving up control and trusting the flow state.

Philosophical Journeys & RW Book Club

Every month philosopher and author Jules Evans takes us on a philosophical journey, applying some of the timeless wisdom of the past to current cultural dilemmas. Past sessions have included "Existentialism and the Meaning Crisis", and "Aldous Huxley and the Human Potential Movement", and these sessions are available as recordings for members. We have also just launched the Rebel Wisdom book club. We will choose a book a month in advance, to give time to read it in advance of the session, and then we will discuss it together. (For Explorers and Sensemakers)

"A magisterial mappa mundi of the terrain that Pierre Hadot has so productively worked for decades, this ambitious work revises our view of ancient philosophy―and in doing so, proposes that we change the way we see philosophy itself. Hadot takes ancient philosophy out of its customary realm of names, dates, and arid abstractions and plants it squarely in the thick of life. Through a meticulous historical reading, he shows how the various schools, trends, and ideas of ancient Greek and Roman philosophy all tended toward one goal: to provide a means for achieving happiness in this life, by transforming the individual’s mode of perceiving and being in the world."

RW Book Club. John Vervaeke 'Ancient Philosophy'

For our third edition of the Rebel Wisdom Book Club we will be looking at RW regular John Vervaeke's favourite books, 'What is Ancient Philosophy?' by Pierre Hadot. Philosopher Jules Evans will host the discussion with John, as they examine one of the most interesting and profound accounts of the true nature of ancient philosophy, reframing it as a guide to the transformation of the individual.

Mon 14th June @ 8pm UK / 3pm ET / 12pm PT

 

Philosophical Journeys: Can Stoicism still help us?

The ancient philosophy of Stoicism promises its followers that it can be a therapy for the soul which will bring you to a state of invulnerable emotional equilibrium. It inspired Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and in the last 20 years has enjoyed a remarkable revival. Jules Evans played a role in that, organising the first gathering of modern Stoics in 2010, and two 'Stoicons' since then. Can Stoicism help us today? Has it been diluted into pop self-help - and does that matter? Join the philosophical journey...

Mon 28th June @ 8pm UK / 3pm ET / 12pm PT

Who is Jules Evans?

Jules is a writer, speaker and practical philosopher, interested in ideas and practices which help people suffer less and flourish more. His bestselling first book, Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations, explored how people are rediscovering ancient Greek and Roman philosophies and how Greek philosophy (Stoicism) inspired Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). His second book, The Art of Losing Control, explored how people find ecstatic experiences in modern western culture.
