We hope you all enjoyed last week’s post about deciding what to do with the time given to us. Apart from that, you’ll notice that this blog has been quite silently lately. That’s because in addition to recovering from celebrating six of our graduates, we’ve been gearing up for a very geeky summer.
Hopefully you know that as of this year, Grey Havens YA incorporated with The Grey Havens Group, Inc to become an official, tax-exempt nonprofit organization. We are working on taking all the steps necessary to reflect that change, and that means website links won’t always redirect properly and blog ideas will sit in the queue while we gather summer camp supplies and prepare training materials and paperwork. We thank you so much for your support and patience during all this.
Here at Grey Havens YA and The Grey Havens Group, Inc, we are super enthusiastic about a technique we like to call “Geek Philosophy.” If you search that term on our website, you will find countless posts about it. It’s something we’ve been doing with our young adults for almost three years, and we also implement this technique with our adult groups and in our intergenerational programming. Creating an environment where people of all ages can discuss philosophy and literature openly and equally is so central to who we are as an organization.
In that respect, we hope that you will join us for our next Geek Philosophy event This Friday, July 8th from 6pm to 9pm at Carbon Valley Regional Library. We’ll be watching Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and using it as a jumping off point for a very geeky philosophy discussion. No registration necessary, just show up with all your friends and enjoy the popcorn! This event is open to all ages. On social media, we like to use the hashtag #BoldlyThink.
Bonus! We’ll be doing it again with Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country on August 12th! Same time, same place. We hope your summer will be full of brave philosophical exploration and adventure!
Now send us an owl: What’s your favorite Star Trek movie and how does it help you to #boldlythink?
