Event Details

“Sunday Assembly” Silicon Valley Community Gathering | Mountain View

Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More” is the motto for Sunday Assembly Silicon Valley (SASV), an international community movement that celebrates life. The radically inclusive SASV is a secular and service nonprofit that celebrates life, welcomes all people and supports everyone fulfilling their potential.

It aims to help people “live better” with inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people lead the lives they want; “help often” by encouraging community action and lives of purpose; and, “wonder more” with talks, singing as one, readings and games to connect with each other and world. Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.

Monthly meetings feature live pop music, TED-style talks, inspirational stories, socializing over coffee and cake and activities for children. SASV focuses on purpose and action. It supports local nonprofits through hands-on help and donations. The organization offers “smoups,” small activity groups that gather around member interests, including outdoor activities, book reading, crafts, self-improvement and beer tasting. On site parking is free.

SASV is two years old. Cellist Freya Seeburger speaks this month on the relevance of making time in our lives for music and the other arts in “Why Music Matters.”

Seeburger is a classical and rock performer and recording artist. She is known for creating unique events that incorporate improvisation, popular culture and visual art in unconventional spaces and collaborating with artists across mediums. Artistic director for Juxtapositions, a music and production company, Seeburger contributes to San Jose’s “Content” magazine, is a musicologist, and was recently appointed to the SJ Arts Commission.

Blanket and Coat Drive – Please bring your new, or nicely used, blankets and coats to contribute to their collection for folks who need them.

Also, enjoy the pop song sing-along, other readings, and coffee, tea and nibbles. Supervised childcare and craft activities are provided. Afterward the congregation lunches at local eateries. This month, look for the table of fun people at San Pedro Square Market, 87 N. San Pedro St, outside in good weather, or inside at B2 Coffee when it’s cold. Disabled parking is on site and others may park for free on most neighborhood streets or at the San Jose State University garage at San Fernando and 10th Street for $5.
