Registration required. 2nd and 4th Thursdays, January-May. Syllabus and readings available from Margaret Determann.

Roman philosopher Lucius Anneaus Seneca (1 BCE - CE 65) wrote, "Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness." Centuries later, in 1770, French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire (non de plume for François-Marie Arouet) quoted an Italian proverb: "The perfect is the enemy of the good." In this 10-session class, through readings, videos, and exercises, we will explore the nature and practice of goodness. Topics will include nonviolent communication, mindfulness, and forgiveness.
