We are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

Book Reading: Religion for Atheists
the "Kindness” Chapter
by Alain de Botton
"There [are] so many ways of behaving that we subscribe to in our hearts but ignore in our day-to-day lives. However, in a world obsessed with freedom, there are few voices left that ever dare exhort us to act well."
The entire chapter is available here!
Let's read and discuss during the gathering and at the "apero" afterwards.
