Chicago Jedi Movie Night - "Courage and the Human Condition"

  • Jan 20, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will watch two short videos examining what it means to be human and the ways we relate to one another. We will join Brené Brown speaking at the December 2010 and March 2012 TED Conferences. Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past ten years studying topics like courage, empathy, and compassion.

In the first video, she looks at our ability to empathize and connect. Through her poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

Our journey continues with a second video in which she examines the secret behind many forms of broken behavior and what prevents us from forming positive connections with others.

We will stop periodically to reflect and discuss the information presented. The presentation will be projected on a screen in a private home. Some food and drinks will be provided, but please feel free to bring snacks or dishes to share.
