Please register via Zoom.
For tens, even hundreds of thousands of years, humans have been wondering about their place in the universe, and pondering fundamental questions about their existence, such as:
- How can I understand the world?
- How can I find meaning and fulfillment in life?
- How can I find comfort when I am grieving?
- How do I deal with the fear of my own death?
- How should I behave – what is right and wrong?
Find out how Humanism is a framework for answering these fundamental questions.
