In this course we will discuss Becoming Wise, a New York Times bestseller by Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and National Humanities Medalist, Krista Tippett. Ms. Tippett shines a light on leading thinkers who ask the big questions and who kindle in us a sense of wonder and courage. Scientists in a variety of fields, theologians from an array of faiths, poets, activists, and many others have opened themselves up to Tippett’s compassionate yet searching conversation. (Adapted from the book flyleaf). You’re invited to read the book reviews. Go to her website, On Being (http://www.onbeing.org/
) and get a feel for the deep, delightful, insightful quality of her inquiry. Tippett paints a hopeful vision of humanity's quest for meaningful lives. Through enjoyable reading and lively discussion, we’ll walk the pathway together with Tippett and perhaps surprise ourselves by becoming wiser. We’ll learn, laugh, deepen the meaning we find in life and enjoy each other’s company. Facilitated Discussion.
