Why Religion?

 —  —

Oasis San Diego, 5500 Grossmont Center Dr #269, La Mesa, California

Join us for this live, in-person event at Oasis. What is religion? What is it for? Why have people across all borders—temporal and geographical—built these systems of signs, symbols, rituals, and traditions? Has it runs its course? As church membership and belief in God continues to decline, are we entering a post-religious age? Has science replaced religion? Why do a growing number of people report that they are “spiritual, but not religious?” What does that mean? Join us for an inquiry into these and other questions as we search for ways to adapt the ancient forms of religion to the ever-changing realities of the dawning new age. In-person only. $18

Our Wild Calling - Richard Louv and Peter Bolland

 —  —

Oasis San Diego, 5500 Grossmont Center Dr #269, La Mesa, California

Join best-selling author Richard Louv and philosophy and religion professor Peter Bolland for a conversation about our relationship with the natural world. What does time spent in the outdoors do for us? Why do we feel that way when we are in the forest, or the desert, or anywhere away from the din and grip of industrial society? What does our longing for natural spaces tell us about our own essential natures? What insights might the world’s wisdom traditions offer to deepen our inquiry into these important questions? In-person only. $18

The Great Philosophers: Rene Descartes

 —  —

Oasis San Diego, 5500 Grossmont Center Dr #269, La Mesa, California

Join us at Oasis for this in-person only event. In our continuing study of the great philosophers of the Western tradition, few can match the powerful impact of French scientist, mathematician, and philosopher Rene Descartes (1596-1650). Known as the father of modern philosophy, Descartes shifted the focus from metaphysics to epistemology. He posed an all-important question: how can you describe the known without understanding the knower? By going within his own mind and searching for certainly, Descartes laid the foundation for modernity. All philosophy after Descartes must respond to his deconstruction of classical metaphysics. Join us as we follow Descartes’s groundbreaking methodology and explore his revolutionary insights. In-person only. $18

The Dying God, the Trickster, and Sacrifice

 —  —

Oasis San Diego, 5500 Grossmont Center Dr #269, La Mesa, California

Join us in person at Oasis as we explore the interplay between these three prominent and powerful concepts in religion and mythology—the dying god, the trickster, and sacrifice. All over the world the archetype of the dying god holds sway—a divine being who takes human form only to die a sacrificial, gift-giving death. And the common archetype of the trickster god shakes and rattles us awake from our complacency by presenting divinity in shocking and disruptive forms. But why? Let’s find out! In-person only, $18

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.
