  1. Ted Talks at Passmore - The Gift and Power of Emotional Courage - Susan David

    January 21, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Passmore Center

    What are TED Talks? TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED is owned by a non-profit, non-partisan foundation. Its agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversations. Topics are created and made available for use by TED. Join us as we dive into TED Talks at Passmore in a laidback yet informative environment including a 15 - 30 min video/talk and follow up discussions. Psychologist Susan David shares how the way we deal with our emotions shapes everything that matters: our actions, careers, relationships, health and happiness. In this deeply moving, humorous and potentially life-changing talk, she challenges a culture that prizes positivity over emotional truth and discusses the powerful strategies of emotional agility. Min: 5/Max: 25. Facilitator: Meghan Davis

The clinic will include brief lectures, educational handouts, and simple yoga poses to reverse postural aging. Students will need to be able to get down on a mat. Instructor: Amritari Martinez, M.A., E-RYT Certified Yoga Wellness Educator and Former State Credentialed Adult Instructor. Ph: 919-904-7657, Website: www.mindhealthyoga.com

  14. Depolarizing Within: A Better Angels Workshop - Passmore

    January 24, 2020, 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM @ Passmore Center

    Much of today’s epidemic of toxic polarization is driven by talking to like-minded people. Too often we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule others who support another political party. Although political polarization has always been around, people today on the “other side” have become not just strangers but enemies. How we talk among ourselves fuels fires that threaten our democracy. What if we learn the discipline of non-polarizing attitudes and words about the political “Other” with whom we do share a national past and future? Min: 6/ Max: 20. Facilitator: Cathy Cole, Better Angels
