Without Reverence Things Fall Apart
Mellon Room in the Northeast Harbor Library, 1 Joy Road, Northeast Harbor.
What is reverence? Why is it considered one of the four classic virtues? Is it different from religion or spirituality? Using Paul Woodruff’s book "Reverence: Renewing A Forgotten Virtue", we will explore the concept and practice of reverence from ancient China and Greece to the present. No previous knowledge of philosophy or psychology is needed.
