Our Essential Life Tasks:
Doing Good & Living Well
Humanism is both a working philosophy and a way of life. It is an admixture of the abstract and the practical, which together have the aim of providing a meaningful and happy life for those who are adherents.
This will be a round table discussion of how we can better realize our potential as human beings , and affect the quality of life in the society around us. We will find connections between the philosophical discussion that is forever ongoing, and the way we meet the everyday problems of living using some of these ideas.
Many of us have noted what we see as the lack of humanist social outreach programs, while forgetting the considerable effort many members apply to the betterment of their communities and the world through their efforts.
Our aim is to synthesize a new understanding of the enduring relationship between our inner needs and finding satisfaction in fulfilling what we see as our responsibilities in the continuing re-creation of the world outside ourselves.
