Anxiety is a topic that routinely comes up in discussions during our fast-paced, informationally overloaded world. How can one have anxiety and still live a fulfilling life? In this personal and educational talk, public historian Justin Clark will share his lifelong story of living with anxiety and how he learned to cope with it. From studying Buddhism to Psychoanalysis and everything in between, Clark finally found in the writings of 19th century Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard a poignant and encouraging path forward. Sharing insights from Kierkegaard as well as practical experience, Clark outlines how one can live a meaningful life while living with constant nervousness.
Anxiety, Kierkegaard, and Me: Living and Thriving with Nervousness
Unitarian-Universalist teachings are not restricted by the limitations of adherence to narrow or dogmatic ideas in our search for meaning in our lives. Humanism, which counsels us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warns us against idolatries of the mind and spirit are integral aspects of our Living Tradition.
