New Acropolis Tirana organized another book club meeting, an opportunity to share and discuss big ideas through different times. The book of the month was The Road Less Traveled by Scott Peck, presenting an enriching perspective of love and traditional values. The power of this book stands on the fact that it shows a road, not an ordinary one, but a road through which every person can perceive and experience spiritual growth.

In collaboration with the Student Cultural Center of Belgrade, New Acropolis presented the lecture titled ‘Overcoming Fears’. Through a philosophical focus, participants identified lack of knowledge and experience as the main causes of their fears. Everything that is unknown frightens us and can block us, but can also encourage us to take action. By overcoming fears, the unknown becomes known, and doubt and pain disappear.

A Wheel of Virtues and a group of dressed up philosophers went to Broadway Market in London on a busy Saturday. People were encouraged to have a go at spinning the ‘wheel’, getting a virtue and receiving an inspiring quote. More than a hundred pedestrians were attracted by seeing ‘ancient philosophers’ approaching them with information about this international celebration. It was a very successful activity and a great way of spreading philosophy in our society.
