Theme: Understanding ourselves

August 16, 2022
7:00pm - 8:30pm BST
(UTC +1hr)
Nantymoel, Bridgend
United Kingdom
This event is invite-only.

The philosopher Aristotle once said, "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom". In this intimate salon event at the Brothers' Cafe, Nantymoel, we will watch TED and TEDx talks from a variety of speakers who will offer their insight into what it means to understand ourselves.

Attendees will then have the opportunity to discuss their thoughts about the talks and about our own perspectives on the topic in a friendly and informal atmosphere, and will be encouraged to reflect on how the messages being shared can influence their own understanding of themselves.

We will be watching the following talks:

Ze Frank -"Are you human?" -
Brene Brown - "The power of vulnerability" -
Brian Little - "Who are you really? The puzzle of personality" -
Russell Foster - "Why do we sleep?" -
