Mental Health Without God

Online event

2020 is a challenging and troubling year for nearly everyone. People are facing virus-related illnesses and deaths of loved ones; millions are unemployed and facing evictions; schools can't safely re-open; and the democratic institutions of the country have been weakened, and in some places, torn apart. These challenging and troubling times cause seemingly insurmountable mental stress, anxiety, alienation, depression, and loss of confidence within ourselves and within our loved ones. Mental Health Without God We are inviting you to an open discussion of sharing and support for dealing with the challenges and stresses of our time, without dependence on religious or spiritual beliefs. There will be no experts in this discussion. It will be participants sharing with one another how we maintain and struggle with our mental health as atheists, nonbelievers, skeptics, and humanists. Topics will include: How to talk to your family and friends about non-belief Coping with loss Coping with anger When "Praying on It" Doesn't Work Coping mechanisms

Virtual Book Club: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

Hey all. We have a new book for our book club. Hidden figures Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation. This will be a "SOCIAL DISTANCING" virtual meetup using the Zoom app. More details about that will be forthcoming well in advance of the meetup. So check back later for those updates. So if you have been struggling to commit to one of our events - this one will take the transportation logistics off the table! We Hope to hear/see you (long time members and new members). All are welcomed regardless of how much of the book you've read (been there - done that :-).
