Sunday Assembly Silicon Valley #5: Making Friends With the End
April 13th, 11:00am, San Jose Women's Club
Hosted by Richard Treitel and Rick Thomas, our next Assembly will be deep (about 6 feet deep.)
Jeremy Adam Smith from the Greater Good Science Center in Berkeley will speak about “How Death Can Help You Make Friends and Influence People.” The Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society. Jeremy has written four books, including The Compassionate Instinct and The Daddy Shift, and was a John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford.
We'll also hear some interesting words from Erica Goss, Los Gatos Poet Laureate.
We will sing some of the great songs you find yourself crooning in the shower or bopping along with on the car radio.
Children’s activities will be provided for the younger members of the congregation.
There will be tea and cookies, and time to chat.
What there won’t be is any reference to deities or dogma. Everyone is welcome.
So, don’t fear the reaper! Come and join us in an entertaining and enlightening Sunday morning.
PLEASE LET US KNOW YOU ARE COMING, and RSVP here on Meetup.
