What is friendship? Why do we value it so much but so many experience it so seldom? Are Facebook friend-ships friendships? Does true friendship require long term commitment, knowing each other well, history together, helping, accepting, being there when, being vulnerable? What is friendship?
Modern life can make it hard to form and maintain friendships – our survival and status needs get in the way of friendship. So do spiritual, philosophical, religious, temperament differences. What was friendship like in a tight-knit hunter-gatherer community?
Come and share your ideas as we dialogue about friendship and and related thoughts we individually and collectively bring to our circle.
The Religious Exploration Salon is a group that meets 3rd Sundays to discuss various topics in the format called Bohm Dialogue.
For more details about how Dialogue works, please see our January article.
Everyone is welcome. You are welcome to think about the topic beforehand but no preparation is required or expected — come as you are with whatever thoughts/intuitions you have, ready to listen, learn and contribute. We meet Sunday Nov. 22nd at 7pm in the Brackett Room.
Contact Paul Reising, Tom Yelton or Jan Hardenbergh for more information.
