What Can a Movie Tell Us About Mental Health?
- Revolutions, pandemics, job loss, lack of motivation, fear — such are the unfortunate events that have taken us by storm.
- In times of uncertainty, we often face difficult challenges and sometimes may even feel helpless against them.
- On our journey to finding solutions and gain mental health, we look for guidance and support by turning to some of the most well-known leaders, experts and gurus for advice.
- Remarkably, it turns out that many of the solutions we are seeking can actually be dangerous and harmful to our lives if we’re not careful — some might even drive us mad as it did to Joker.
- That is why, more than ever, we need to be cautious about the advice we are exposed to.
- Can mental health help us discover ourselves and flourish? Yes, and there is one forgotten science that can be our guide: Philosophy.
- Join us to discover how by grasping the philosophical root of mental health, you can own your life.
- Highly recommended to watch the movie "JOKER" by Joachim Phoenix prior to the event.
Who is Leopold Ajami?
here is what Leopold , the Founder, Novel Philosopher of Novel Philosophy Academy says about himself:
"Writing your own bio is like sitting in the bathtub waiting for an 'Eureka' moment. You want to make it compelling without sounding too pompous, yet you want to make sure you don't miss a thing. Should I mention the dog that I don't have? No.
What if I start with a question? "What would happen if Philosophy married Creativity?" Good - that summarizes my career as a "Novel Philosopher."
I could sneak in that I'm also a Public Speaking Coach, Adman, Filmmaker, obsessed about learning and creating cultural change. Don't forget to mention that you are the founder of a professional development hub called Novel Philosophy Academy, and the host of the “Ideas On Trial” Podcast.
The water rises and makes you slightly drunken. Then, thunder grabs your belly. You jump off the bathtub to tell the world you're pregnant with an idea, only to slip face down. You miss a charming introduction; but, you walk out with a new purpose: To help people sharpen their minds, sculpt their characters, and uncage their voices.
