A Miss Land (行者空間)
||A Miss Land
A spiritual club: the purpose of life discussi... (The purpose of life)
||* Have you ever wondered what is the purpose and meaning of life?
* Are you afraid of death, and wondered the darkness beyond your existence?
* What is happiness? How do we define it and how can we pursue it?
* How should we conduct our lives in general? What is morality ?
These are the fundamental questions we often asked when we were young, but they also come back in various stages in our lives, in crisis, in joy, in puzzled times, and in lonely moments. We human beings are creatures of wondering. Socrates said: "Life without thinking is not worth living". So, let's think about them, and let's talk about them!
These questions are often addressed by various religions. But what happen if you don't believe in God, or other supernatural phenomena? What happen if you believe modern science and its materialistic natural explanation is the best way to describe the world? Do we lose our meaning of life in this world, and can we find a meaning of life for ourselves? The answer should be yes, the question is how.
Religions people can go to church every Sunday, but if you don't believe in God, it doesn't mean you don't have a spiritual need, and you don't want to have a community of your own. According to evolution, human beings are supposed to live in small communities. We find comfort and mutual support in such setting. Ever since we human being learned how to think, we have wondered about those questions, and developed the spiritual needs. Those questions have been debated thousands of years, but that doesn't mean they will cease to entertain us for many other years. The traditional religions are the results of those debates a few thousand years ago, but perhaps fresh thinking in light of new science and knowledge will produce something brand new. The world could be a better place !
The purpose of this club is to get together a group of similar minded people to talk about those topics, and to entertain ourselves. If you ever feel lonley during the weekend, come to join us, to discuss, or just to listen. If we have enough people, we can have a meeting every week.
Besides replying/posting on this forum, you can also send an email to email@example.com, so we can send you notice when we have a meeting. Please also tell us when you will be free and where is the best place to have meeting in the Bay Area. We welcome everyone, male and female, young and old, and even if you believe in God!

The topic will be around spiritual, religion, philosophy, life and death, relationship, marriage, happiness, culture, moral, ethic, humanism, and after all, the purpose of life. Anyone will be welcome, and you can just drop in. At this stage, we will not chose a topic for each meeting, instead the topics will be spontaneous.

ballroom bootcamp (club bb)
||We practice "social ballroom dancing" on a regular basis. This is NOT a competitive dancesport group.
Instead, we want to:
1. get people excited about ballroom dancing as a social activity;
2. build a large enough group so people will have ready access to dance partners and "dance mentors" with similar interests/skill levels;
3. get people already taking dance classes to retain the dance patterns they learn in class and to use them on the dance floor;
4. introduce everyone to everyone else in a friendly environment.
Typically, we meet Saturday nights at Cubberley Pavillion in Palo Alto. Look for a little red balloon to find our little group. Usually 10+ people show up at any single meeting.
