Do Atheists Feel Awe? Experiencing Wonder without Religion

Do non-believers experience a rich sense of awe? Some studies show that feelings of awe and wonder are associated with religious belief. In contrast, we think that awe is accessible to all people, as attested by research and the testimony of freethinkers. Join Richard LeVitt and Roy Kindell at the Community Center, 59 Winburn Way, Ashland, for an introduction to the topic and an opportunity to share personal experiences. Awe is diverse and rewarding, so please come and share your epiphanies and stories of things in nature, art, thought, or life that have moved you.

Richard is a retired technology executive and Roy an educator in the Rogue Valley.
