Have you heard? Awe and wonder are important for us to thrive — according to UC Berkeley psychology professor and author, Dacher Keltner, in his latest book, “Awe: The New Science of Everyday Wonder and How it Can Transform Your Life.” Too many of us have neglected and minimized these aspects of our emotional well-being. In this session, we will discuss the benefits of experiencing awe and wonder and how we can cultivate them in our lives.

Join us this month as we explore a mindset that includes awe and wonder. How can a mindfulness practice reinvigorate our everyday lives and connect us to others through awe and wonder?

We will begin with a guided meditation, followed by discussion. Attendees are invited to share their own life experiences and lessons with the group.

All are welcome in the spirit of compassion as we seek to support one another toward greater well-being.

Each month we explore a different aspect of mindfulness and its associated practice from a secular humanist and naturalist perspective — drawing on the experience and wisdom of participants. This month’s session is facilitated by Humanist Celebrant, Audrey Kingstrom.
