Residency course at the Oakland Morehouse
*Evaluacy: An Oakland Morehouse Guided Tour
This is a two-week intensive residential course which is designed to introduce you to all aspects of Morehouse communal living and, if you’re interested, help you figure out whether you might like to live communally, either with us or in an intentional community of your own. By living in a Morehouse, you will experience the opportunities, problems, and pleasures offered by interacting closely with others in the context of a one no-vote group. You will have guides to help structure your time so that you get to sample a wide variety of the experiences and fun available. There will also be several sessions to discuss and examine all aspects of your course. A project to be accomplished with your housemates is included, which creates a hands-on opportunity to explore goal achievement in a society where the rule is “Don’t do anything you don’t want to do.”
**More Socratic Dialogue
In the Socratic Dialogues of Plato, Socrates declared “that the unexamined life is not worth living.” The More Socratic Dialogue course was created to encourage students to examine extensively and communicate about all aspects of life. The course also applies the one-no-vote system and the concept of perfection to everyday experiences, with the goal being fun.This course provides residency in a Morehouse, where students participate in the social experiment of Morehouse. While living with others who embrace the concept of perfection, student participants practice the principles of the More Philosophy in their daily lives and have the opportunity to discuss and compare their findings with other students.
