This club aims to discuss issues and propose well thought-out solutions in Modern Politics and conduct research into current and historic consequences of policies. Unlike most political clubs we like to form a community of intellectuals that engage in conflict with personal world views by discussion and learning. As intellectuals we heavily base our arguments and proposed solutions on academic research rather than blatant opinions. We are Waterloo students that enjoy critical thinking and we belong to a variety of majors at University of Waterloo. The club members are heavily invested in Philosophical thinking and often propose solutions to modern politics via rational thinking.

Our mission is to inspire positivity and resilience to empower a healthy mindset. The Bhakti Yoga Club is for open-minded students, all ages, who like to view issues by examining “the bigger picture”. It is about introducing spirituality to students from all different faiths and ethnic backgrounds. More specifically, tangible solutions based in ancient cultures to material problems. Anyone with an interest or curiosity in spiritual discourse, yoga and meditation, self-help, or simply a desire to try something new is welcome to any of our sessions.
The university community like University of Guelph, McMaster University and University of Toronto have clubs similar to this promoting Vedic principles and philosophies. With an increasingly influential “next generation” in these ever-growing communities, we also thought it was about time to bring the young people from these organizations together to discuss the ideas we were brought up with and celebrate the unity in our diversities in an academic setting. Want to challenge a narrative you were taught? We probably do too!
You don’t need prior experience with any of these ideas to join our club. Bring your own opinions, approaches to life and concerns and let’s learn from each other! Our goal is to create a network of like-minded deep thinkers on campus through chill discussions, free workshops, musical meditation and more.
