What we're about

Sunday Assembly San Diego (http://www.sundayassemblysandiego.org/) is a non-religious congregation that celebrates life. Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more.

Join us for a one hour celebration with some songs and a guest speaker, followed by coffee and snacks. Sunday Assembly San Diego (http://www.sundayassemblysandiego.org/) is part of the international movement of people who want to celebrate the one life we know we have. Together, we are Sunday Assembly Everywhere. When traveling, look for other Assemblies in Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, Edinburgh, Utrecht, London, etc.

We are here for everyone who wants to:

* Live Better. (http://www.sundayassemblysandiego.org/live_better) We aim to provide inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the people they want to be

* Help Often (http://www.sundayassemblysandiego.org/help_often). Assemblies are communities of action building lives of purpose, encouraging us all to help anyone who needs it to support each other

* Wonder More (http://www.sundayassemblysandiego.org/wonder_more). Hearing talks, singing as one, listening to readings and even playing games helps us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in.

The Sunday Assembly:

1. Is 100% celebration of life. We are born from nothing and go to nothing. Let’s enjoy it together.

2. Has no doctrine. We have no set texts so we can make use of wisdom from all sources.

3. Has no deity. We don’t do supernatural but we also won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do.

4. Is radically inclusive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a place of love that is open and accepting.

5. Is free to attend, not-for-profit and volunteer run. We ask for donations to cover our costs and support our community work.

6. Has a community mission. Through our Action Heroes (you!), we will be a force for good.

7. Is independent. We do not accept sponsorship or promote outside businesses, organizations or services.

8. Is here to stay. With your involvement, The Sunday Assembly will make the world a better place.

9. We won’t tell you how to live, but will try to help you do it as well as you can.

10. And remember point 1… The Sunday Assembly is a celebration of the one life we know we have. What should you expect from a Sunday Assembly event? Just by being with us you should be energized, vitalized, restored, repaired, refreshed and recharged. No matter what the subject of the Assembly, it will solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a touch of transcendence into the everyday. But life can be tough… It is. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, we have moments of weakness or life just isn’t fair. We want The Sunday Assembly to be a house of love and compassion, where, no matter what your situation, you are welcomed, accepted and loved. Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.

Sunday Assembly with Beatrice Golomb - IN PERSON AND ON ZOOM

Bankers Hill Club House (also known as San Diego Indoors Sports Club)

This will be the 2nd hybrid assembly, after (hopefully!) learning from September's Assembly. Please feel free to attend in person, or on Zoom.

Havana Syndrome: Diplomats' Mystery Illness

In 2017, news outlets started reporting about U.S. diplomats in Havana, Cuba hearing strange noises and experiencing physical symptoms usually associated with brain injury, including hearing loss, memory loss, headaches, and nausea. Subsequent reports of similar problems emerged from diplomats in China and Germany, among other places. Some media sources labeled these as "sonic attacks" with "mass hysteria" an alternate hypothesis. However, Dr. Beatrice A. Golomb, Professor of Medicine at UCSD School of Medicine -- whose work is responsible for the current leading hypothesis -- will share why the evidence points to not a sonic attack, but a different source, and what the ramifications are to U.S. civilians.
There will be humans. There will be singing. There will be snacks, and caffeine, and a poem, and there will be MASKS. Yep, masks are required for this indoor event, even if you are vaccinated. 🙂 All the caveats apply here: we will look to county authorities for changes in COVID practices, and will adjust accordingly if needed.

Child care will be provided! We are back at the Bankers Hill Club, which features an accessible facility, including accessible parking spots and bathrooms.

Here's the Zoom link for anyone who wants to attend online:

Post-Assembly Lunch at Barrio Star

Barrio Star

Please join us for lunch after the Assembly, even if you can't make it to the Assembly itself. The time the Assembly finishes will vary, but people will start to head over to Barrio Star between 12:30 and 2, and usually end by 3. See you there!

Talk-o Tuesdays

Online event

Let's hang out and let the conversation go where it goes. What are you binge watching or reading? How's your family doing? Having weird dreams? Whether it's silly or serious, community and connection is just what the doctor ordered. Bring your best dad joke to start off.

Here is the Zoom meeting info:

Roaming Restaurants: Golden Chopsticks

Golden Chopsticks Restaurant

Let's eat! Join us for dinner at Golden Chopsticks in National City. We have a reservation, but the space there is pretty large and they should be able to fit more. There are vegan and vegetarian options on the menu, and if you do eat meat, the salted pepper chicken wings are to die for.

There is plenty of parking in the surrounding shopping center if not in front of the restaurant (usually there are spots in front of the Joann Fabrics). This is near the Plaza Blvd & Palm Ave bus stop #50066, and the 962 and 963 Bus Routes stop there.

If you'd like to join us but would need a ride, please leave a comment below and hopefully we can find you a lift with another attendee.
