Our Purpose:

It’s important to remind ourselves that the conditions of our mind are malleable and that we don’t see the world as it is; we see the world as it appears to us.

How the world appears depends on the conditions of our mind.

If we improve these conditions, we change our entire experience for the better.

Your mindset will color everything you do. It determines how you see the world, how you respond to it, and how you act within it.

Orion exists as a place where people can come to find ways to develop their foundations. In doing so, we can become happier, more responsible, more resilient, and less stressed.

We can optimize how we think to optimize how we live.

OUR Name:

In Greek mythology, Orion was the huntsman who was placed among the stars by the Greek god of thunder, Zeus.
That story of Orion inspired the name for this community. Although you and I can’t be made into a constellation by an ancient God, we can still rise and improve the conditions of our lives. It just requires responsibility, decision, and a path or framework.

At Orion, we explore the ideas of ancient and modern philosophy to draw out the most practical and usable ideas. Ideas that you can implement right now to live happier, calmer, and more resilient lives.

We value open and honest discussion, questioning without judgement, objective thinking, and the pursuit of great, practical philosophy to reduce suffering and increase happiness. Basically, we try to find better ways to live.
