UUFGC- Awetheism Part 1: Science, Awe, and Pro-Sociality

Hybrid Hybrid Event

June 16 @ 10:45 am 11:45 am

The Grand Canyon

New research into the experience of awe reveals that awe makes us feel small but deeply connected, and how this in turn makes us more generous people. With help from some well-timed lightning strikes (and no help from Siri or Alexa), we’ll explore what’s known about awe’s effects on us, and how it can benefit humanity. We’ll also learn how science can help us experience awe, plugging us into a grander vision of our larger selves within our communities, world, and universe. Part one of a two-part talk.
