    Reach Out and Touch Someone

    Touch deprivation is linked to measurable increases in stress, sleep problems, a compromised immune system and cardiovascular disease. This means that touch is a powerful weapon in the arsenal for good health. In this affirming talk, we’ll explore why this issue is at near epidemic levels in our country and what each of us can do to take care of our needs for Vitamin T.

    Madness in the Message: Start Talking

    How is a for-profit media affecting democracy, and what can we do about it? Speaker, radio personality and comedian Ron Placone joins us on October 11th to help us challenge the way “we the people” interact with news and the corporate media.

Ron hosts the syndicated radio show and podcast, Indie Bohemians, in Nashville, TN, is part of The Young Turks Network on YouTube, and tours the country as both a Media Policy Speaker and stand-up comedian. In his academic life, Ron’s been published in the Journal of Contemporary Rhetoric and occasionally serves as Adjunct Faculty at Nashville State Community College.

  • November 8th Sunday Assembly

    Dr. Foad Dizadji-Bahmani, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at CSU LA

    What in the Many Worlds?

    Despite being one of our most empirically successful theories and a pillar of modern physics, there is still no consensus about how quantum mechanics is to be understood. Dr. Foad Dizadji-Bahmani, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at CSU LA, will explore the Many Worlds Interpretation, according to which, literally, the entire universe is ubiquitously and continuously branching off into "parallel" universes. He'll address how physicists could come to embrace such an outlandish theory and how seemingly nonsensical concepts can help us make sense of our world. 

    Join us at 11am for great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for coffee and, if you're still game, lunch at the Oinkster across the street.
