Salon: Future Events

Salon Information

Salon Program
Jefferson Center Salons present topics of interest to our community, and provide a forum for lively discussion afterward. Topics are selected by a committe of members. We serve refreshments contributed by volunteers and have a brief social time before the start of the program. Salons are typically held on the second Sunday of each month at 4pm at The Jefferson Center, 208 Oak Street, Suite 101 in Ashland. Guests of members and interested visitors are always welcome to join us. To volunteer for refreshments or make a suggestion for a future salon, please contact committee chair Diana Spade by clicking here.

03/11/2018 - 4:00pm Do Atheists Feel Awe? Experiencing Wonder without Religion

Do non-believers experience a rich sense of awe? Some studies show that feelings of awe and wonder are associated with religious belief. In contrast, we think that awe is accessible to all people, as attested by research and the testimony of freethinkers. Join Richard LeVitt and Roy Kindell at the Community Center, 59 Winburn Way, Ashland, for an introduction to the topic and an opportunity to share personal experiences. Awe is diverse and rewarding, so please come and share your epiphanies and stories of things in nature, art, thought, or life that have moved you.
