The touchstones theme in June is TRANSCENDENCE
Inspiration for UU parents:
A little something different this week…I thought perhaps you may appreciate a few TED talk suggestions during these lazy, hazy days of summer.
Religion, Evolution, and the Ecstasy of Self-Transcendence by Jonathan Haidt (18:10)
Fasting: A Path To Mental And Physical Transcendence by Phil Sanderson | TEDxBeaconStreet (7:10)
Self Transcendence and Passion for our Optimal Future by Brian Westerman TEDxColbyCollege (13:42)
From the Touchstones REACH journal, June 2019
And for the kids, instead of a story, how about a video?
Cloud Dance by Jim Elton (3:49)
A brief clip of changing clouds seen through a window.
Circle of Life by Carmen Twillie & Lebo M. – from The Lion King (4:06)
Then, see if you can find the Lion King movie somewhere. This is a fabulous story about transcendence! The public library does have several copies but it is often checked out so get your name on the waiting list! Baraka! (means blessings in Swahili).
Let me know if I can be supportive to you in any other way! I am here for you.
All my best with blessings,
