Sundays | 9:30 – 10:45 am | Room 310

Check out this great Adult Education discussion group meeting on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in Room 310!

Some weeks the group watches TED Talks together; other weeks presenters bring in interesting and inspiring ideas. And, regardless of the inspiration, we then set aside time every week to discuss the issues presented.

Topics cover a wide range of issues and ideas — which open us up to the encouraging work of people who address problems, as well as our own power and possibilities to participate in change.

Watch our website and Facebook page for the presentations and conversations coming up each week to help you  find Spirit in every facet of your life!

THIS  Sunday morning, October 20, Os Flores presents Depressed Dogs, Cats with OCD — What Animal Madness Means for Us Humans by Laurel Braitman

Behind those funny animal videos, sometimes, are oddly human-like problems. Laurel Braitman studies non-human animals who exhibit signs of mental health issues — from compulsive bears to self-destructive rats to monkeys with unlikely friends. Braitman asks what we as humans can learn from watching animals cope with depression, sadness, and other all-too-human problems.
