What is a “reading circle”?

The monthly Reading Circle is a service for members who want to deepen their reflection on the mystery of personal life in company with others.

We choose a text rich with personalist content, and then host a small gathering in our home to discuss it together.

To get the conversation started, Jules gives an informal introduction, which we record and post afterwards at the member forum for those who can’t come in person.

Members can comment or raise questions in the forum. Our hope is eventually to create a kind of “online personalist book club” experience.

Suggestions for texts and ways of improving the service always more than welcome.
