Approaches to Intimacy: Understanding How We Connect

The binding thread of Ethical Culturist is relationships, what Felix Adler would call the spiritual work of Ethical Culture. So how does connection work? In October, Christian Hayden spoke about the courage of vulnerability, but building to that can be difficult. Why is that? Relying heavily on attachment theory, Christian is going to share language around intimacy and how it impacts us in different parts of our lives.

In-Person and Zoom

We are hopeful this program can be both in-person and on Zoom, but we may change plans depending on the COVID-19 pandemic risk levels for hospital patients with COVID.

We begin the program promptly at 10:30 am ET, with gathering time from 10:15 both in-person and on Zoom.  We will try to end by noon. In-person social hour begins at noon. You're welcome to bring some food to share during social time. The Zoom room will be open until 12:30 for socializing.

Refrain from attending any in-person meeting if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or are testing positive. We recommend vaccinations and boosters (over age 5). While the risk level is medium, we suggest but do not require (for other than the speaker while speaking) a mask covering mouth and nose when inside.  Please respect the needs of others and yourself for social distance -- air hugs and air handshakes unless you KNOW the other person is comfortable otherwise. We ask that you sanitize your hands before handling any shared food or drink.

Ethics for Children: Our in-person children's program has resumed as of September, 2022 (also subject to checking COVID-19 hospitalization levels).
