Starting 3rd February 2024, Just Being Center will be hosting reflective and contemplative reading circles centered around Gabor Mate’s insightful book ‘the Myth of Normal’.
We will use select passages from the book as a prompt to spark discussion around the societal lenses through which we perceive mental health and normality and what could be the way forward.
FLOW OF THE CIRCLE
- A thoughtfully selected passage by the facilitator will be read in a shared reading space
- We will take some time to explore the thoughts and emotions that arise as we delve into the text
- Sharing and contemplative dialogue by the participants
**Days:**1st & 3rd Saturdays
Time: 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm IST
Mode: Online & In-person (Pune)*
*All circles will be open to attending online. Some circles will also be open for joining in-person and will be announced in advance. Opening circle on Feb 3rd is both online & in-person.
Who can join: The circle is Open To All
