The Fourth of July is right around the corner. As humanists, how should we reflect on this day? Humanism calls us to care for the well-being of all, but sometimes that feels in conflict with what our fellow Americans expect of us and our country requires.
Join us for a thoughtful and probing discussion of what it means to be a good American citizen — as well as a good citizen of the world. Are the two incompatible? How can a mindful disposition help us navigate our responsibilities to our country and the rest of the world?
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.
