“It Isn’t Always Easy Being the Love:
Practicing Conscious Activism for a New Planet”

with Kris Comment

Let’s face it: our current political climate makes it difficult to “Be the Love” when confronted with views that run contrary to our beliefs and values.  So what can we do?  Drawing inspiration from our Unitarian Universalist ancestors, modern Civil Rights activism, and Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth, we’ll consider how transcending ego-based politics to a new consciousness that affirms our “respect for the interdependent web of all existence” can foster a more civil discourse, and maybe even help to save the planet.

About Kris Comment ~
Kris Comment (she/her/hers) has been a member of UCMH since 2016. She earned a Ph.D. in American Literature and LGBTQ studies at the University of Maryland in 2002 and is currently a full-time English teacher at Belmont High School and part-time Visiting Associate Professor of English at Framingham State University. She fell in love with the Transcendentalists as an undergraduate and finds her greatest spiritual inspiration in literature.

“The Cultural Paradigm:  A User’s Guide”
with Nan Rogers

Have you ever asked yourself questions such as: How do I perceive other people?  How did I develop my body image? What is my place in this culture as a person of my gender? We create our views of the world largely through cultural paradigms. The cultural paradigm is a system of beliefs, ideas, values, and habits that generates a specific truth definition of the real world.  Some truth definitions influence on a global scale; some on an individual level. Some paradigms are overt; some are subliminal. Some are constructive; some are downright toxic. But the deeper, promising truth: we get to choose which paradigms to empower… and which to render obsolete. Join us for reflections on navigating cultural paradigms.
