Human Connection: From the Titanic to Our Future Earthlings

Date: 5/3/2024
Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

How do we retain our humanity in the face of a de-humanizing world? It’s easy to lose sight of our intense, ever-present connections with the world, due to the distractions of daily life.

Immersive museum exhibits and multimedia experiences of human life of past, present and future bring acute and relatable awareness to the lived humanity, tragedy and triumphs of those beyond us – even those who passed before we were born or will be born far into the future, thus expanding our sense of humanity.

Here we will explore neuroscience research on our sense of self vs. other, how our brain filters what we perceive, and our biological need to connect. Instructions on mindfulness and compassion practices that may aid in keeping a kind, but strong heart will be given.

Dr. Julie Brefczynski-Lewis will describe her own research at the University of West Virginia as well as teach exercises now being studied as the “next frontier” in Mindfulness research.

Price: $1 pre-registration; $1 at the door
Parking Information: Free parking is available in the gravel lot west of (behind) the KTC building.
