Check out this great Adult Education discussion group meeting on Sunday mornings. Some weeks the group watches TED Talks together, while other weeks presenters bring in interesting and inspiring ideas. We set aside time every week to discuss these issues. Topics cover a wide range of issues and ideas — which open us up to the encouraging work of people who address problems and the possibility of our own power to participate in change. These presentations and the conversations that follow will help us find Spirit in every facet of life. Watch our website and Facebook page for what’s coming up each week!

February 17: Bill Lanford presents Everything You Think You Know About Addiction is Wrong by Johann Hari

What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.
