What Are Creation Myths Really For?

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Zoom Webinar Through San Diego Oasis

All around the world ancient people told fantastical tales of the dawn of time and the creation of the universe. What questions were they trying to answer? “Who made the world, and how?” Or were they asking different questions – questions much closer to home, like, “What am I, and what is my place in the cosmos?” Using Joseph Campbell’s four functions of myth, we’ll closely read, analyze, and discuss the creation stories in both Genesis and the Mayan Popul Vuh, looking for insights not into the literal origin of the universe, but into the secrets of our own essential nature and nature of reality itself. 60 minute presentation, 30 minute Q&A. All registrants receive a video of the webinar afterwards. $16

Inside the Electoral College

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Zoom Webinar Through San Diego Oasis

Every elected official in America, from local school board to the U.S Senate, is elected by popular vote – except one: the President of the United States. Ever since 1789, the Constitution requires that the President be chosen not by popular vote, but by a curious body called the Electoral College. What is it? How does it work? Does it work? Join me for an insider’s view into this curious American institution. Even though I have my doubts about the fairness of this 18th century process, I was honored by an opportunity to serve as one of California’s 55 electors in the 2020 Presidential election. I’ll share insider details about this remarkable experience and lead us through an inquiry into the pros and cons of this curious political mechanism.

The Spirit of Gratitude

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

University Christian Church, 3900 Cleveland Ave, San Diego, CA

Join us live and in-person for this fourth and final installment in our "Growing Spirit" series, "The Spirit of Gratitude." The Thanksgiving holiday season is an ideal time to reflect on the meaning and power of gratitude. A traditional harvest festival, Thanksgiving gives us a communal opportunity to consciously shift out of our normal worried mind stuck, as it usually is, on how there’s never enough – never enough money, never enough time, never enough love – and move instead into the awareness that we have everything we need. “Gratitude,” wrote the Roman philosopher Seneca “is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” In other words, developing the consciousness of gratitude opens the door to the cultivation of all of the virtues – compassion, kindness, courage, serenity, and satisfaction. Is gratitude an endpoint, a state only realized after I get everything I want, or is it a decision I make in the here and now regardless of outer conditions? Join us as we explore this and other questions surrounding the transformative power of the consciousness of gratitude.

As we all ease back into "normalcy," thanks for your patience through these long years of pandemic distance. Nearly all events are still 100% online via Zoom, but we hope to begin offering live, in-person events beginning in 2022.
