Open Circle

Kat O’Sullivan will present “Live Your Legacy from Impossible to Possible” at the next gathering of Open Circle, Sunday, May 12, 10:30 a.m. in the garden of the Lake Chapala Society.

This talk will challenge you to choose to live your legacy, every moment of every day — in alignment with what’s most important to you now. To challenge your thinking about what’s possible, no matter what stage of life you are in. To recognize that it’s okay to give yourself permission to pursue what you really want, recognizing that there is power in possibility with a purpose — driven plan. There will be a handout to help you make the shift from impossible to possible and have a step-by-step process for making it happen.

Lakeside Freethinkers

The Lakeside Freethinkers will meet via Zoom Wednesday, May 15.

One item on the agenda is their Student Aid Project, coordinated through the Lake Chapala Society. A local science student has been selected for support. Another topic will be a “problem” that philosophers have thought about for at least 2,500 years. This is “the demarcation problem” as it relates to science. Just where is the line between science and non-science or pseudoscience and how does that relate to the scientific method?

The Freethinkers define a “freethinker” as a person who identifies himself or herself as an atheist, agnostic, secular humanist, or skeptic. They reject belief in the supernatural and rely on science and reason to guide their lives.
