Have you ever considered how humanity's past affects our present and what that means for our future? Would you like to?
The events are generally about half presentation, by the session host or a guest speaker, followed by discussion moderated by the host or presenter. Divergent ideas are welcome; however, the discussions are moderated to keep them civil and fully respectful, to attempt to give all participants a fair amount of time to speak, and to try to focus the conversation generally around the topic of the day. So we're all invited to contribute, but you don't have to be an expert to be welcome, participate, and enjoy the fellowship of thoughtful people who all agree to be open to divergent ideas and treat each other with respect.
The events explore the world of ideas, in the broadest sense, including: human evolution, paleoanthropology, and anthropology; evolutionary psychology, brain science, and psychology; mythology, eastern thought, religion, and philosophy; sociology; public policy; history and pre-history; cosmology and the sciences; and the arts and humanities, to name a few. Of special interest are the interconnections among all fields of knowledge and tracing questions about the present and future back to root causes in our past and in who we really are as human beings. Ideally that approach can help us develop constructive, practical approaches we can build into our lives.
