  • The On Being Dinner Discussions 5:00pm - 6:00pm PDT: The On Being Dinner Discussion: Ai-Jen Poo “This Is Our (Caring) Revolution”
    Come join together as students, staff, and faculty to help make meaning, reflect on our lives, and connect with each other. Each Wednesday in April we will discuss a podcast from Krista Tippet’s On Being Project (onbeing.org.) Participants can either listen to the podcast or read the transcript.

    On Wed., April 29 we will discuss Krista’s interview with Ai-Jen Poo, “This Is Our (Caring) Revolution.” Ai-jen Poo is executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the co-director of Caring Across Generations. Her book is The Age of Dignity. Her podcast, co-hosted with Alicia Garza, is Sunstorm.

    From the On Being website: “Ai-jen Poo is a next-generation labor organizer who co-founded a beautiful and muscular movement with caregivers and those who employ them: the National Domestic Workers Alliance. For over two decades, she has been reinventing policy and engaging a deep conversation that has now met its civilizational moment. This conversation was recorded before “coronavirus” was a word we all knew. But the many dimensions of the crisis now upon us have revealed Ai-jen Poo and her world of wisdom and action as teachers for our life together, in and beyond it.”

  • The On Being Dinner Discussions 5:00pm - 6:00pm PDT: The On Being Dinner Discussion: Pauline Boss “Navigating Loss Without Closure”
    Come join together as students, staff, and faculty to help make meaning, reflect on our lives, and connect with each other. Each Wednesday in April we will discuss a podcast from Krista Tippet’s On Being Project (onbeing.org.) Participants can either listen to the podcast or read the transcript.

    On Wed., April 22 we will discuss Krista’s interview with Pauline Boss, “Navigating Loss Without Closure.” Pauline Boss is Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota. She is the author of Loss, Trauma and Resilience: Therapeutic Work with Ambiguous Loss, Loving Someone Who Has Dementia, and Ambiguous Loss.

    From the On Being website: “You could say of the present that we are suddenly in a world of “ambiguous loss.” Family therapist and clinical psychologist Pauline Boss coined this term, and invented a new field within psychology, to name the reality that every loss does not hold a promise of anything like resolution. There are “complicated griefs” that shift the world on its axis from one day to the next, with no going back to the world of before and no time to set things in order. This conversation is full of practical intelligence for shedding assumptions about how we should be feeling and acting that deepen stress precisely in a moment like this. It offers wisdom and concrete tools for becoming more meaningfully present to what is actually going on inside ourselves and for others.”

  • The On Being Dinner Discussions 5:00pm - 6:00pm PDT: The On Being Discussion, Carlo Rovelli “All Reality is Interaction”
    Come join together as students, staff, and faculty to help make meaning, reflect on our lives, and connect with each other. Each Wednesday in April we will discuss a podcast from Krista Tippet’s On Being Project (onbeing.org.) Participants can either listen to the podcast or read the transcript.

    On Wed., April 15 we will discuss Krista’s interview with Carlo Rovelli, “All Reality is Interaction.” Carlo Rovelli is a professor of physics at Aix-Marseille University, where he is director of the quantum gravity group in the Center for Theoretical Physics. He is also director of the Samy Maroun Research Center for Time, Space, and the Quantum. His books include Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and, most recently, The Order of Time.”.

    From the On Being website: “Physicist Carlo Rovelli says humans don’t understand the world as made by things, “we understand the world made by kisses, or things like kisses — happenings.” This everyday truth is as scientific as it is philosophical and political, and it unfolds with unexpected nuance in his science. Rovelli is one of the founders of loop quantum gravity theory and author of the tiny, bestselling book Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and The Order of Time. Seeing the world through his eyes, we understand that there is no such thing as “here” or “now.” Instead, he says, our senses convey a picture of reality that narrows our understanding of its fullness.”

  • The On Being Dinner Discussions 5:00pm - 6:00pm PDT: The On Being Dinner Disucssion: Vincent Harding “Is America Possible?”
    Come join together as students, staff, and faculty to help make meaning, reflect on our lives, and connect with each other. Each Wednesday in April we will discuss a podcast from Krista Tippet’s On Being Project (onbeing.org.) Participants can either listen to the podcast or read the transcript.

    On Wed., April 8 we will discuss Krista’s interview with the late Vincent Harding, “Is America Possible?” recorded in 2016.  Vincent Harding taught at Iliff School of Theology. He authored the magnificent book Hope and History: Why We Must Share the Story of the Movement and the essay “Is America Possible?

    From the On Being website: “In an unsettled political moment, at the end of a divisive campaign, the late, great civil rights elder Vincent Harding is a voice of calm, wisdom, and perspective. He was wise about how the civil rights vision might speak to 21st-century realities. Just as importantly, he pursued this by way of patient yet passionate cross-cultural, cross-generational relationship. He reminded us that the Civil Rights Movement was spiritually as well as politically vigorous; it aspired to a “beloved community,” not merely a tolerant integrated society. He posed and lived a question that is freshly in our midst: Is America possible?”

  • The On Being Dinners: April 1 with Rebecca Solnit 5:00pm - 6:00pm PDT: The On Being Dinners: Rebecca Solnit, “Falling Together”

    For students, staff, and faculty:
    Gather around our virtual table to discuss how we are together in this Stay-At-Home world, ready to wrestle with a quote from Rebecca Solnit from her
     On Beinginterview with Krista Tippett.

    “There’s a way a disaster throws people into the present and sort of gives them this supersaturated immediacy that also includes a deep sense of connection. It’s as though in some violent gift you’ve been given a kind of spiritual awakening where you’re close to mortality in a way that makes you feel more alive; you’re deeply in the present and can let go of past and future and your personal narrative, in some ways…” - Rebecca Solnit
