"A truly magical educational fellowship created from the ether, just when I thought I was drowning in a Groundhog-Day existence, the opportunity to join The New Cavalier Reading Society tethered me back to myself. The Commonplace Books have become my bible & speak to me daily. Our varied discussions make me analyse all my thinking & both re-evaluate & reaffirm my beliefs, and my synapses are now firing 24/7 again.
Jung said, “Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Thanks to The New Cavalier Reading Society I am AWAKE!"

 "The New Cavalier Reading Society is an incredible opportunity

to grow your smarts, your heart & your community.


   Joshua curates a learning environment where your interpretations, opinions & creations are accepted, 
iterated and validated. 


    The tutorials are intriguing & invite creativity & push you a little further in character, knowledge, & communication & have become a treasured part of my week. The Commonplace Books are so precious I take them with me wherever I go. It’s incredible how they've become a reference, a North Star—a point of fascination for both fleeting moments in trains & hour upon hour of curiosity curled up on the couch.
   

As an education professional I’ve seen many attempts at both online learning & online community and I can confidently attest that The New Cavalier Reading Society is well-designed, magnificently facilitated & tremendously curated. It's engaging adult learning at its best & you’ll be grateful for the investment you make in yourself

—socially, emotionally, & intellectually—

by communing as a New Cavalier."
