We live in a world of relentless ambiguity, relativism, and contradiction. This complex world that we’re meant to understand is clouded and coloured, almost beyond our comprehension by:
- Social, cultural, and economic injustice
- Corruption and hypocrisy in government, business, and organized religion
- Ideological polarization and extremism
- Rampant consumerism
- Existential fatalism
- Fear and apathy
We have become cynical and often superficial, even though our deepest instincts still motivate us to reflect and wonder if there is a path beyond the cynicism and superficiality. We wonder if there is deeper information or higher knowledge that would help illuminate this path and point the way to some understanding; even to some answers. We wonder if there are others like us; others who are wondering as well.
“The Question” is a new, disruptive community that seeks to provide an organic gathering place for those who wonder about our complex selves, our complex world, our complex universe. The new community is completely non-religious and inclusive. The goals of the community are:
- To re-kindle the ancient traditions of exploring truth through diverse, thoughtful dialogue and response
- To offer a creative and welcoming atmosphere that encourages questions and honours the “questioners”
- To provoke thought, discussion, and inquiry across the wide spectrum of life and beyond
- To create and nurture a growing community of authentic thinkers and explorers
“The Question” Community will exist in multiple forms.
- A community gathering every 1st Saturday evening at Loft 112 in East Village (535 8 Ave SE, Calgary, AB) starting at 7:00 PM. These gatherings will feature arts and music, concise and informative presentations, and evolving community dialogue.
- A weekly, 30 minute monthly podcast of arts/music, presentation, and community dialogue highlights.
- A YouTube channel of highlighted video content
- Facebook and Twitter ongoing discussions and features from community members
We invite you to join “The Question” Community. Think… Ask… Explore…
