What we're about

North Orlando Oasis is an open-hearted secular community that engages participants in fulfilling social connections, opportunities to serve humanity, and diverse secular education. Understanding “community” is central to human happiness and wellbeing, Oasis provides a place for individuals and families to connect, be inspired, and feel empowered. In short, it is a place for the non-religious to come together to celebrate the human experience.

Our Core Values define our community and help shape our interactions with each other, society, and the world:

People are more important than beliefs
Reality is known through reason
Meaning comes from making a difference
Human hands solve human problems
Be accepting and be accepted

This group is designed to connect individuals and families of the North Orlando area who have humanist values, providing thought-provoking, enlightening, entertaining, and meaningful experiences, both in-person and online. Learn more here: www.northorlandooasis.com

Upcoming events (4+)

Community Picnic

Needs a location

Connect with others on a smaller scale around stimulating conversation and relaxed time at the park! Oasis community groups offer an opportunity to engage with others better, find and offer support, and share ideas and thoughts!

Feel free to bring food you would enjoy having at a picnic, or enjoy what others have brought, or you don't have to eat at all. This is super casual and just a great time to hang out and get to know each other and discuss future community events we're working on.

Join us and get involved with our growing community focused on reason and compassion. Please be fully vaccinated and boosted (if eligible).

UnBook Club for Radicals

Needs a location

Our reading this month is TBD!

Our goal is to read material that helps us envision a radically inclusive society — one that celebrates the humanity of all people regardless of age, race, color, national origin or immigration status, body size, disability, relationship style or status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, conviction history, or other culturally outlawed way of being.

How can we liberate ourselves and one another from all forms of oppression and build a world where all power is shared, all people are free, and all necessities are readily available for everyone?

We will use Oasis’ Core Values to help set the norms for our discussion:

  • People are more important than beliefs
  • Reality is known through reason
  • Meaning comes from making a difference
  • Human hands solve human problems
  • Be accepting and be accepted

Special Screening of Kiss the Ground

Needs a location

Come learn about a solution to bring nutrition to our food, restore our watersheds, save our planet, and heal ourselves.

Oasis is hosting a special screening of the documentary Kiss the Ground (https://kissthegroundmovie.com/). Narrated by Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis.

Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

This movie is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible – to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species future.

We will provide some light beverages and snacks during the event. After the film we will be giving away regenerative food products, including a bottle of biodynamic wine!

As a reminder, since this is an indoor event, we will be exercising Covid-19 safety precautions. Masks are encouraged, and we will have a sanitization station available upon entry.

Community Board Game Night

Let's sit at the table and play some fun games together!

We'll be meeting at The Collective, an awesome comic book and gaming store, where we can be inspired by the stories and characters around us and create our own! If you have a favorite game, feel free to bring it with you, or we can check out the games they have available at the Collective.

We will be letting The Collective know how many people will be joining so they can make sure they have an open table set aside for us. Please make sure to RSVP, and add guests if you plan on bringing anyone!
