the meaning and experience of friendship

Join us for a SEi Salon! These small gatherings will range broadly in the world of humanities--all with the sense and experience of the joy of learning and of living a more reflective and engaged life. Of course, expected ingredients will include good company and active conversation. (On occasion we will feature live music.)

The first salon sessions will focus on that common but sometimes elusive human love called friendship. While conversation and insights will go where they will, select readings and connecting ideas will be touched on throughout. For this first session, we will engage aspects of friendship from The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis, among other works, and explore connections to such things as courage, desire, and ordinary experience.

A few refreshments will be provided, but feel free to bring something of your own to add to the mix.

The next session will touch on the experience of friendship by the young and on developing capacities for meaningful friendship. We will also explore friendship's relation to such things as perception, confidence, and judgment.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

The glory of friendship is not in the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is in the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
