Book Launch Monday, May 5, 2014 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Explore the power & potential of community with Paul Born, co-founder of Tamarack Institute and author of Deepening Community: Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times.
Community shapes our identity, quenches our thirst for belonging, and bolsters our physical, mental, emotional, and economic health. But in the chaos of modern life, community ties have become unraveled, leaving many feeling afraid or alone in the crowd, grasping at shallow substitutes for true community.
Internationally recognized community-builder Paul Born will present at Banyen on the theme of his new book Deepening Community, in which he describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories—as a child of refugees and as a longtime community activist. (starfishian)
