AEU All-Societies Platform: Human-I-Tree (Online)

December 31, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us online!

December is a month that moves us toward Winter’s balance of light and dark with short days and full nights. For many, it’s a time to mark the rhythm of our days, years, and seasons.

December is also a time to turn toward each other and gather together in celebration and remembrance of our interconnection. Our All-Society Platforms have become one place we connect with each other as an Ethical movement.

Join Audrey Kindred, the American Ethical Union, and Societies from across the country on December 31 at 11:00 AM ET for the next All-Society Platform: Human-I-Tree.

Notice: There will be no in-person watch party for this AEU All-Societies Platform.

About Human-I-Tree

Human-I-Tree is an original vision grown through community engagement at the New York Society for Ethical Culture by Audrey Kindred‘s collaboration with artists, activists, and children of all ages. It honors how every breath we take as humans is integral to the life of trees.

Audrey brings Felix Adler into dialogue with ecological hero and 2004 Nobel Prize for Peace recipient Wangari Matthai by proposing that “bringing out the best in one another and thereby ourselves” is not truly peace unless we honor our interconnectedness by respecting the earth together. Human-I-Tree branches into a whole family of tree concepts that can inspire our human community building processes.

This tree-inspired platform includes gifts from several artists with whom Audrey has collaborated for Human-I-Tree. Among them are Simba Yangala, Jody Sperling, Alexa Babakhanian, Annie Lanzillotto, and Bonita Oliver.

About Audrey Kindred

Audrey Kindred invites the Ethical Culture diaspora to “come tree with me!”

Audrey has led Ethical intergenerational programming for 25 years and currently serves the New York Society for Ethical Culture. She is the co-author, with Dr. Anne Klaeysen, of a brand new course published by the American Humanist Association called “Humanist Family Life Ceremonies.”

She is currently completing a master’s degree that centers mindful Climate Justice education. Audrey is focused on how creativity and embodiment impact our ethical development. She honors retired Ethical Leaders Lisel Burns and Martha Gallahue as her Ethical roots.

About Sunday Platform

Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest.  Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Humanist philosophy. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
