Event Details

Sunday Assembly: Communty Sing & Meetup | Berkeley

Sunday Assembly is a non-religious congregation that celebrates life. They’ve got the best parts of a church – community, singing, and acts of service – without any of the religious dogma.

They typically meet on the third Sunday of the month to sing, think, listen, laugh, and build community together. They feature speakers from the local science and humanities communities, and they typically offer a way to donate to a local organization.

The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation started in 2012 by two comedians and performers in England. It is a growing global network of people with the motto to “Live Better. Help Often. Wonder More.”

This month’s guest speaker is Sheldon Helms, professor of experimental psychology at Ohlone College.

A longtime skeptic, Sheldon has spoken for dozens of secular and skeptical groups across the country about a variety of topics related to critical thinking, psychology, and skepticism. He is at Sunday Assembly to present “Be More Like Your Brain,” a primer to how the human brain can serve as a metaphor for living a full and productive life.

Sheldon served as Vice President of the Bay Area Skeptics for eight years, and has written for the James Randi Educational Foundation, as well as contributing to several books on critical thinking such as “Magic in the Classroom,” a collection of tips for those teaching critical thinking in higher education. His podcast ShelShocked can be found on iTunes and Stitcher.
