Coronavirus: Alone – Solitude or Isolation? Living Room Conversation
April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT
90-Minute Conversation with Optional 30-Minute Q&A with Hosts!
3:00 PM EASTERN / NOON PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)
Our social nature is part of our humanity. People tend to like being with other people, and many of us need other people in order to be healthy and happy. The feeling of being alone can weigh heavily on an individual. Yet, for some people, solitude is tranquil, relaxing, and even spiritually rewarding. The current need to physically isolate ourselves from others is putting limits on our social connections. While we are being cut off from outside daily connections, some of us are also sharing living space with others and not having the amount of time and space between us that we’re used to. What is this experience like for you?
HERE is the conversation guide. Please pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.
Is there a fee to participate?
No, however, our work is made possible through the donations of generous supporters – who might include you! You can give when you scroll down to register for this event by selecting the “donation ticket” option.
How long do I have to register?
You have up until 4 hours before the event’s start time to register.
What do I need to participate?
You will need a device with a webcam (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone) to participate and be seen by other participants. A Zoom link to join the conversation and a link to the conversation guide will be sent to you the day before and again one hour before the conversation.
An attitude of respect and curiosity!
Can I invite others to participate?
Yes! We suggest reaching out to those who think differently from you and telling them why you think they would like this conversation and why you are registered. You can send them to our events page on our website at: https://www.livingroomconversations.org/events/
What if I have questions or need to cancel?
If you have questions, you can contact email@example.com. Details about how to cancel online or via email will be in the confirmation email you will receive just after you register, or you can email Heather.
