Since June 2020, the Whitney Senior Center has registered to host TED Circles, an “open community of small groups that engage in conversations about big ideas.” TED Circles discussions are based on monthly themes provided by TED. Whitney’s TED Circles are hosted by RSVP Volunteer Lalita Subrahmanyan on Zoom every Tuesday, from 1:00-2:00 pm.
So far, we have discussed TED Talks on themes such as the Environment, Designing with Humanity and Resilience. Participants, some of whom attend regularly, say that through TED Circles they have met interesting people from a variety of backgrounds in the St. Cloud area and learned new perspectives on issues they have never thought about before. We would love for you all to participate!

We all want it. We all need it. We all seek it. But what really is happiness, and how is it attained? Can money buy happiness? Do we need friends to be happy? Is happiness only about pleasure and pain? Is happiness up to us, or is it more about luck?
If you would enjoy a chance to discuss these questions, here is a learning opportunity for you! You are invited to participate in a group discussion on the nature of happiness and why it matters. We will be reflecting on claims of major philosophers such as Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, and several contemporary thinkers. These discussions will develop your analytical thinking skills, while also engaging your imagination. This will be not only informative, but fun!
