How long does the program last?
The initial program lasts 12 months and in that time you will attend 12 seminars, one per month, as well as completing various tasks and activities.
Can you do it all in one go or opt in and out?
In short, no. The speed of change means that we are far better at grasping things if we take a calmer more measured approach to our intellectual fitness.
The program is broken down to enable time for reflection and your own work.
You can opt out at anytime but you cannot opt in again, you would have to start with a different group.
Who is the program for?
If you wish to get a grasp on where we are and how we seem to be stuck in a world of confusion and nonsense, then this is for you. Particularly if you are keen to engage others in conversation over the current issues we all face.
If you think free speech is central to our lives then this is for you.
The program requires a leap of faith at the beginning and rather like a mystery tour you may not have that aha moment for the first three sessions, but it will come.
Who is the program not suitable for?
If you believe the world is made of competing groups vying for power and that everyone is struck by phobias and isms then walk on by.
If you are a biology denier and disdainful of the scientific process, then walk on by.
If you like a quiet life and worry about what you can and cannot say, then walk on by.
If you have disdain of free speech then walk on by.
We would rather not waste our time.
You mentioned disrupting, what does that mean.
People, especially young people, are being told that everything, including them, is miserable and hopeless. The stories being told are stating that all is about power and oppression and nothing else. These stories demoralize and depress folk, they make them believe that everything is about fighting against some evil oppressor and that a focus on competency, meritocracy and achieving individual success is a bad thing.
You can bet we are going to disrupt that narrative, and we think you should too.
