Discussion article for the meetup : Brussels - Mindfulness and mental habits
LessWrong has been a bit quiet of late, partly because some of its best would-be contributors have focused on their own blogs. (This doesn't bode well for the long-term health of the site, but I'm not quite ready to rename this group SlateStarCodex Brussels.)
Among the most interesting off-site developments is sort of a generalization of the ideas discussed in Ugh Fields and Noticing Confusion: an ongoing conversation on mindfulness and trainable mental habits. Most of it is on Brienne Strohl's Agenty Duck (though there's a good deal of less link-able spillover on Facebook), and brand-new The Mind's UI should be all about it.
It's the month of new year's resolutions, as good a time as any to discuss such concrete self-improvement techniques.
We will meet at 1 pm at "La Fleur en papier doré, close to the Brussels Central station. The meeting will be in English to facilitate both French and Dutch speaking members.
