WYA North America Hosts Online “Drinks and Discussion”

August 7, 2020 – WYA North America’s “Drinks and Discussion: Online Edition” was a great success, thanks to the outstanding participants from around the world. Since WYA NA moved its traditional Drinks and Discussion events online earlier this summer, they have proven to be quite popular, and this one was no exception; a total of 11 people joined the call, and one member from India showed her dedication by attending at 2:30 am in her time zone!

The discussion centered on Josef Pieper’s essay, “Work, Spare Time, and Leisure,” and participants took a deep dive into philosophy, the meaning of work and leisure, the purpose of human existence, and so much more. At the end, participants shared their plans for incorporating true leisure into their lives, ranging from taking walks in nature to picking up a good book.
