Zen and the Art of Pandemic Chaos
StoicDan has researched the famous book “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert Pirsig. He realized that the book’s concepts relate well to the current pandemic. So, he has volunteered to start our discussion about helpful Zen concepts in this popular classic. Motorcycle ownership is not necessary to participate.
In his lifetime, the author, Robert Pirsig, gave very few interviews, and yet, his book “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” has helped generations find meaning in life. The book is part manifesto, part motorcycle adventure, and part philosophy. Join StoicDan at Inquiring Minds / Plato’s Cave… as we explore this book’s major takeaways and apply them to the Coronavirus pandemic. Also, even if you can’t attend this meeting, please listen to the NPR interview below. The description of sitting and meditating may help you find tranquility today.
Our Inquiring Minds group meets to discuss a chosen topic in an informal setting. Subjects include religion, current events, politics, and science, among others. Drop-in visitors are always welcome. Inquiring Minds information is also available at the Plato’s Cave meetup website: meetup.com/PlatosCave
