A throwback from earlier days in Europe when friends gathered to talk, laugh and seek a more meaningful experience of living through the wisdom of art, literature, science, politics, ethics, etc. The Salon is a hospitable space for those who prefer a more human-centered approach to life. We won’t be praying prayers. We won’t be singing hymns. But, we will be exploring and celebrating that “spark” which inspires beauty and ignites passions.
The Salon is perfect for those who want to be in community with others of goodwill and who care deeply about working with others to make the world a better place!
In the Salon, a Presenter presents a topic to discuss by way of a film clip, a talk, or a multi media presentation.
After the presentation is received, the group gathers together to connect the topic to their lives, share opinions, and probe deeper meanings. Through guided discussion, members of the circle share some of the their hopes and gleanings with the group about the topic.
The group then moves into some silent time, followed by an opportunity to share your concerns and/or joys briefly (in a sentence of two) with the group. The Salon concludes with a Send Out from the Moderator.
Salon participants are welcome to join in any of Harmony Creek’s fellowship or justice events.
