Belonging: Living Room Conversation

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Estes Valley Library
Wasson Board Room


Belonging is identified as a basic human need in Maslow’s pyramid. Human beings are happier and healthier when they feel they belong and when that belonging lacks, it affects their self concept and ability to experience fulfillment. People experience belonging in families, clubs, neighborhoods, faith communities, interest groups, schools and so many more places. This guide invites you to explore where and how you feel a sense of belonging and what kind of impact that has.


Living Room Conversations is a small group model for dialogue that facilitates connections between people. Come to the table to share your perspective, learn about the experiences of others and potentially leave with stronger connections and a shared sense of community. This interactive program is participatory in nature: attendees will be asked to engage with and contribute to the conversation. Optional: prepare ahead of time with the Conversation Guide.

This is one of 6 programs being offered in celebration of October's Conflict Resolution Month.

La pertenencia se identifica como una necesidad humana básica en la pirámide de Maslow. Los seres humanos son más felices y saludables cuando las personas sienten que pertenecen y cuando no sienten esa pertenencia, eso afecta su concepto de sí mismos y su capacidad para experimentar la realización. Las personas experimentan la pertenencia a familias, clubes, vecindarios, comunidades religiosas, grupos de interés, escuelas y muchos más lugares. Esta guía lo invita a explorar dónde y cómo siente un sentido de pertenencia y qué tipo de impacto tiene.

“The Righteous Mind:" Book and Interview Discussion

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Estes Valley Library
Wasson Board Room

Why can’t our political leaders work together as threats loom and problems mount? Why do people so readily assume the worst about the motives of their fellow citizens? In The Righteous Mind, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt explores the origins of our divisions and points the way forward to mutual understanding.


His starting point is moral intuition—the nearly instantaneous perceptions we all have about other people and the things they do. These intuitions feel like self-evident truths, making us righteously certain that those who see things differently are wrong. Haidt shows us how these intuitions differ across cultures, including the cultures of the political left and right. He blends his own research findings with those of anthropologists, historians, and other psychologists to draw a map of the moral domain. He then examines the origins of morality, overturning the view that evolution made us fundamentally selfish creatures. But rather than arguing that we are innately altruistic, he makes a more subtle claim—that we are fundamentally groupish. It is our groupishness, he explains, that leads to our greatest joys, our religious divisions, and our political affiliations. In a stunning final chapter on ideology and civility, Haidt shows what each side is right about, and why we need the insights of liberals, conservatives, and libertarians to flourish as a nation.


Pick-up a copy of the book from the Library or watch a condensed version of the subject in Haidt’s online interview on the topic. Regardless of the way you engage, join us for a discussion on October 18th. This program is facilitated by and offered in collaboration with Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership in celebration of Conflict Resolution Month.
