Friday, April 22, at 7:30 PM

Western Mind," and hear his current thinking about how today's
political chaos and polarization, combined with changing social
structures and ecological crises have the potential to create a new

Living at the End of an Era
An Evening with Richard Tarnas
Friday, April 22, 7:30 pm.
According to Tarnas, as the old structures of the world are breaking
apart, the moment of creative chaos is now upon us. Will the future
continue as a disenchanted, mechanistic, purposeless universe or
random and isolated consciousness? Or will humans discover our
embeddedness and creative participation in a living cosmos of profound
meaning and purpose?
Join us for a lively discussion at the Foundation for Global
Community, 222 High Street, Palo Alto.
Tickets are $15, or $7 for students.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

This workshop will encourage
examination upon both sides of this debate and discover how these
timely questions relate to us as mental health professionals. As
psychologists we are called upon daily to reflect on the human
condition in very specific, psychological ways. This diversity
workshop will create a space to reflect upon our reflections and our
philosophies and their origins. September 11th was a tragically
stark reminder to reexamine our assumptions about what we share as
human beings and what we do not. Sponsored by the Santa Clara County
