Sunday Assembly offers more than just the Assemblies—we also have volunteering and social events around London!
You don't have to RSVP to attend but we'd love to know if you're coming as it helps us get an idea of how many of you will need a cup of tea!
Oh this is going to be a good'un, we can feel it in our bones.
We are being joined by the awesome Laura Kriefman who is going to tell her story about how an intention became a habit: and how learning to live life without fear led to choreographing industrial construction cranes.
It sounds like a pretty out there idea don't you think. But just you wait!
Laura is an Architectural Choreographer. If that title alone doesn't make you feel like she's probably a cool cookie, she's also a 2016 INK Fellow, 2015 WIRED Magazine/The Space Creative Fellow and a 2011-2012 Fellow of the Clore Cultural Leadership Programme. Her company Guerilla Dance Project have won multiple awards for digital innovation and specialise in Augmented Dance: the fusion between movement and technology. They create interactive installations and spectacles that have been commissioned worldwide including USA, Brazil, Ireland, Croatia, Europe, India, and Indonesia.
We're also being joined by poet, Desree and if that's not enough, we'll be singing our hearts out, hearing stories from members of the community, drinking a vat of tea/coffee and eating a heck of a lot of biscuits afterwards too.
BSL interpretation will be provided.
We can't wait to see you there and have fun celebrating life with you all!
Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can't.
Humans have always sought ecstatic experiences – moments where they go beyond their ordinary self and feel connected to something greater than them. Such moments are fundamental to human flourishing, but they can also be dangerous.
Beginning around the Enlightenment, western intellectual culture has written off ecstasy as ignorance or delusion. But philosopher Jules Evans argues that this diminishes our reality and denies us the healing, connection and meaning that ecstasy can bring.
