Rev. Jen Bailey @ The Sojourners Summit for Change

THE SUMMIT IS A GATHERING OF 350 LEADERS COMMITTED TO CHANGING THE WORLD THROUGH FAITH AND JUSTICE.

This diverse gathering creates an opportunity for building relationships and cross-sector collaboration. Through inspirational main-stage conversations, small group forums, and shared meals, The Summit provides a space for leaders to find connection to their peers and hope for the future.

Join Rev. Jen at 10:30am on 6/13 for Core Conversation 2: Bridge-Building in Polarizing Times
In such mistrustful and divided times, can the work of “bridge building” be done without perpetuating harm? We know shallow appeals to “unity” can often invalidate trauma and fail to account for the deep roots of polarization. Yes, as people of faith we are called to build and inhabit the Beloved Community outside and beyond our ideological barriers. A panel of practitioners from a variety of fields will offer practical insight for navigating this work.

Rev. Jen Bailey @ The Science of Happiness Event, 1440 Multiveresity

What does it mean to live a happy, meaningful life? How do you respond with resilience to life’s unavoidable stresses and disappointments? How can you forge compassionate connections at a time of extreme busyness, isolation, and division? Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have explored these and other big questions in The Science of Happiness, the online course and podcast—both produced by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center (GGSC)—that have become a global phenomenon.

Now the GGSC and 1440 Multiversity are partnering to take the next step in deepening The Science of Happiness experience: a 3-day gathering that will bring together a global community of individuals hungry for scientific insights, inspiring stories, and practical tips for well-being. The event provides an opportunity for The Science of Happiness students and listeners to connect with one another, but enrolling in the online course is by no means a prerequisite.

Together, we’ll hear from some of the leading lights in the science of happiness, including The Science of Happiness course co-instructors (and podcast host) Dacher Keltner, PhD, and Emiliana Simon-Thomas, PhD, along with best-selling author and world-renowned teacher Jack Kornfield, PhD, positive psychology pioneer Barbara Fredrickson, PhD, trailblazing neuroscientist Richard Davidson, PhD, and many others. A memorable mix of experts and teachers will offer powerful talks, interactive workshops, and illuminating conversations—all designed to help you use scientific findings for personal and social transformation.
