Humanist Hub Discussion Group
We invite you to join us for our Discussion Group, now at The Cambridge Library. The mission of the Humanist Hub is to be an inclusive community of atheists, agnostics and allies creating a new model for how humanists celebrate life, promote reason and compassion, and better the world for all. Each week we have a topic of discussion pertaining to humanist ethics and values that give focus to interpersonal sharing. This is a friendship ritual, where the goal of our conversations is to promote human flourishing in ourselves and each other. We try to balance conversation between intellectual topics where we can learn how to be better people and keeping personal experience the foundation of groups. Humanist perspectives are shared but all perspectives are welcome. We make an effort to be compassionate and foster a non-competitive atmosphere of conversation where we strive to understand rather than persuade. Here is a list of upcoming meeting topics. I do not claim to be an expert in these fields and aim for topics to be a jump start to conversation rather than an expectation of knowledge. This list will be updated monthly. 9/3 - No Group on Labor Day!!! 9/10 - A Sense of Home 9/17 - Career & Identity 9/24 - Ethics in Technology Group norms include: * Assume goodwill * Use “I” statements and speak from personal experience * Avoid advice giving * Topics not of a personal nature or of interest to only a few members will be set aside in a “parking lot” to be returned to later * Please respect the anonymity of group members and refrain from sharing specifics outside the group. RSVPs are encouraged but not required.

What we're about

About Us and Our Values:

The Humanist Hub works with atheists, agnostics, and allies at Harvard, MIT, and beyond: to create an inclusive new model for how humanists celebrate life, promote reason and compassion, and better the world for all.

Our organization was founded as the first-ever “humanist chaplaincy” to serve nonreligious students at a college or university. In addition to providing humanist philosophical guidance and counseling for over 40 years, the Humanist Hub now sponsors and advises humanist, secular, and interfaith groups at Harvard and MIT, and creates inspirational public programs on a broad range of topics relevant to the rapidly growing secular population, with a special focus on ethical leadership in science, technology, and business.

Humanism is a progressive lifestance that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment, aspiring to humanity's greater good -- it is, in short, good without god.
