UPCOMING  EVENTS:  Fall 2018

Event dates can also be found on our calendar page

 

 

Coffee and Conversation

Sunday November 11th, 11am

Neutra House (183 Hillview Ave., Los Altos CA 94022)

Coffee & Conversation sessions are informal, inclusive, supportive gatherings. We just talk about things that are on our minds, things that make for, or detract from, a fulfilling human life in the real world for ourselves and for other people. We listen to each other, share our thoughts, sip our hot drinks, and enjoy being together. We do this at Neutra House in Los Altos the second Sunday of each month at 11:00 in the morning. Linda and John will lead the discussion.

Although it’s fine to just show up, it would be greatly appreciated if you RSVP so we have some idea how many people to expect and can set up the room accordingly. You can use our Meetup page if you have an account there, or you can use our contact form. Thanks

 


Friday Morning Ethics Discussion: Values And The Behavior That Defines Them

Friday November 16th, 10am to noon

Holder’s Country Inn (998 S. DeAnza Blvd, San Jose CA 95129)

What ethical lessons did we learn as children?  How have they evolved over the years?  What brought about these changes?  Let’s share our experiences, both personal and societal, that have brought us to where we are today.  Let’s ask ourselves if we have any preconceptions or prejudices that need to be updated.

Although it’s fine to just show up, it would be greatly appreciated if you RSVP so we have some idea how many people to expect. You can use our Meetup page if you have an account there, or you can use our contact form. Thanks!

 


Sunday Spotlight

Sunday November 18th, 11am

Neutra House (183 Hillview Ave., Los Altos CA 94022)

Join us one Sunday each month to hear from an inspiring, active speaker who will share information about working to make our community and our world a better place. Topics run the gamut from basic needs to social justice to the environment. We welcome you to participate by listening and engaging in thoughtful dialogue, with a little live music mixed in. We provide the coffee, tea, and a welcoming space for inquiring minds and open hearts to learn from one another.

Although it’s fine to just show up, it would be greatly appreciated if you RSVP so we have some idea how many people to expect and can set up the room accordingly. You can use our Meetup page if you have an account there, or you can use our contact form. Thanks!

Book Club: One Nation After Trump by Dionne, Ornstein, and Mann

Sunday November 25th, 11am

Neutra House (183 Hillview Ave., Los Altos CA 94022)

For this meeting of the Ethical Culture Book Club we will be discussing One Nation After Trump by E.J. Dionne Jr., Norman J. Ornstein, and Thomas E. Mann.

• All are welcome (though please read the book)
• Please bring along at least one point for discussion
• If you have chance, look over the list to help choose the next book http://ethicalsiliconvalley.org/ecssv-book-club/

About this book: One Nation After Trump offers encouragement to the millions of Americans now experiencing a new sense of citizenship and engagement and argue that our nation needs a unifying alternative to Trump’s dark and divisive brand of politics—an alternative rooted in a New Economy, a New Patriotism, a New Civil Society, and a New Democracy.  One Nation After Trump is the essential book for our era, an unsparing assessment of the perils facing the United States and an inspiring roadmap for how we can reclaim the future.

Although it’s fine to just show up, it would be greatly appreciated if you RSVP so we have some idea how many people to expect and can set up the room accordingly.  You can use our Meetup page if you have an account there, or you can use our contact form.  Thanks!
