You may be wondering what the eff you are doing with your life.

Should you quit your job? Move to the jungle? What is it you really want to do? What is a “good life” anyway?

This panel is here to help you out!

Join a philosopher, a career coach, a theologian and a 104-year old dancer as they muse on this full-on question. They will discuss psychoanalysis, role models, the search for meaning, art, adventure and much more.
