EMERSON: THE IDEAL IN AMERICA (DOCUMENTARY)

On Friday, January 22nd at 7:00 PM, UUCP will be hosting a viewing of the documentary, “Emerson: The Ideal in America”. Please join us!

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, lecturer and poet who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century is still seen today as a champion of individualism. His belief in “the infinitude of the private man” still resonates with spiritual seekers today. Most people know Emerson’s essay, “Self-Reliance,” but there is much more to the fascinating life of the man and his circle, which included Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Margaret Fuller. You will never look at Emerson – or yourself – quite the same way again.

“Why should we not also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should we not have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?” (Nature, 1836)

Bring a friend. We look forward to seeing you!
