Some friends and I got together and decided to create an event that creates a sense of community for people whose beliefs don’t give them as strong of a community as it might, an event that stimulates the intellect and the curiosity as much as it feeds the spirit.
Starting in September 2017, every third Sunday of the month, from 3-5pm, we’ll be gathering again – location TBD. There will be a short speaker, under the general heading of Woo or spirituality, following the guidelines of (1) is it interesting, (2) is it accessible, and (3) is it useful. People are encouraged, but not required, to discuss the presentation afterwards. Maybe while eating ice cream.
Attire is more bunny slippers than velvet cloak.
