screenshot-from-2016-11-15-112607Dear Friends,

Are you fascinated with new ideas and new ways of looking at life? Do you have an insatiable desire to learn more? Do you get immense pleasure in listening to inspirational stories of great minds, and are you filled with appreciation for great talents? In short, are you a “Curious Soul”?

If you are, then, let’s get together once again and watch interesting, mind-stretching and entertaining TED talks (http://www.ted.com) and have an exchange of views after each talk.

nolaIf you are ready to experience the flourishing of diverse ideas, if you would like to express yourself, expand your horizon and grow together, and while doing all these have an enjoyable time, then I invite you to come and join us at our 16th meeting!

The venue of our meeting is the beautiful NOLA Istanbul in Galata Istanbul. I am sure you will like it.

With my kindest regards.

Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

Hello dear Curious Souls :-))

I know I was silent for a very long time. I apologize for it. Yet I was busy making lots of changes in my life; a new home, a new office, a new business, and lots of new plans still ahead! So I had very little spare time to devote on the organisation of Curious Souls. Taking into account the difficulty I face to find a suitable venue, free of charge, for our classical meetings, I am still discouraged! (if you can assist, please contact me). Yet, I missed spending time with you all.

So, despite that this is a last minute organisation, I want to invite you to join me for a relaxed day out on the Caddebostan seashore to catch up. if you are free and nothing already planned for tomorrow morning, please do come! We can linger on the green picnic area right in front of the Tenis Cafe (next to Zanzibar Cafe). You can bring something to spread on the grass or your picnic chairs. I talked with Tennis Cafe and they said they could serve us food and drinks-even beer and wine if we wanted!tenis-cafe-021

I also thought that, you, the Curious Souls may like to learn about something new that I discovered last year in May and made a part of my life since then 🙂 It is called Zhineng Qigong! It is a moving type of meditation-very similar to Tai Chi but with slower movements. I am in no way an expert of it, but I can share with you what I learned. So those of you who would like to learn, can join me for Zhineng Qigong and the rest can linger on the grass, walk around, ride a bike, etc. Zhineng Qigong normally lasts about half an hour for me but with the explanations, most probably it will take more tomorrow. Please check out the following video of an actress in New York that profits immensely from Zhineng Qigong:


To make things easier for the ones who may hesitate on how to find the exact picnic area, I propose to meet in front of Caddebostan Migros at 10.00 am. We can walk together and then start ZQ at 10:30 at the venue. Those of you who wish to join us after 10.00 am should come directly to the picnic area.

So, have a nice day everybody and see you tomorrow.
Isil the Curious Soul 🙂
