We will meet other women who are part of Unitarian Women’s Groups while discussing what we look for in Women’s Groups? What we hope to find, to discover in Women’s Groups?
We will also examine authenticity. “Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” Brene Brown, research professor at the University of Houston.
We will respond to and share:
- What does being authentic (“inner authenticity”) and living authentically (“outer authenticity”) mean to you?
- What experiences, either intentional or unintentional, have developed your authenticity? Does authenticity come naturally with age, or does it have to be consciously achieved?
- How do you nurture authentic experiences in your day to day life?
- Much of modern North American life and of our personal experience of life is defined by mass culture and electronic media. In what ways do these outlets contribute to or take away from authentic experience?
