Remote Movin’ Shoes Book Club #3
June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are rescheduling our 3rd book club for June 8th via Zoom (see below for meeting URL and ID)! The original event was cancelled, so we decided to try again. If you didn’t have the chance to read it the first go-around, now is your chance! If you need to re-read it, hopefully you have enough time.
We will be reading Zen and the Art of Running: The Path to Making Peace With Your Pace by Larry Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro has run several marathons and an Ironman. He has his MA and PhD in philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania and is currently a philosophy professor at the University of Wisconsin. He is widely published in philosophy and has an international reputation. His area of specialization is philosophy of mind, which deals with questions concerning the nature of mind and its relation to the body. We are honored to be joined by the author for discussion!
Each of our books has touched on the mental aspect of running, this installment weaves mindfulness, Zen Buddhist philosophy and our bodies together focusing on maximizing the pleasure that comes from running. Chapters include: Zen Motivation, Overcoming Obstacles on your Path, The Zen of Racing and The Zen Guide to Injury and Aging.
Discussion questions will be posted in the event discussion.
