Newsletter: Week of February 13, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

In Rising Strong, Brené Brown said, "People who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their stories are the real badasses."
A huge conversation is raging on how to organize the political resistance. But we don't talk enough about how to be emotionally, psychologically and (if you like the word) spiritually prepared to live successfully in an age of alternative facts, the Alternative-Right, and other disturbing realities. How can we, as individual, imperfect and finite human beings, achieve a state of mind and heart strong enough to be the change we want to see in the world?
It is so important, in times like these, to be part of a community of people who help each other to be truly strong, and the ability to be vulnerable is a big part of that. Join us for reflections by Greg Epstein and by members of the Humanist Hub community, for discussion circles, food, opportunities to get more involved, music, and more. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street.
