‘One Life’ Course: Exploring Humanism and Atheism

September/October 2016
The Green House Hotel,  4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX


Course Tutor: Chair of Dorset Humanists, David Warden

The ‘One Life’ Course is a seven week introduction to Humanism and Atheism. This popular and enlightening course is intended for everybody who is interested in Humanism and wishes to discover more about its principles and the activities of Humanists. It's a great opportunity to explore life's big questions from a non-religious perspective, while meeting and interacting with interesting new people in a positive friendly environment.
During the course we’ll discover how Humanism provides a rational, non-religious way of approaching life’s ‘big questions’, and how it offers values that help us to live happy, worthwhile and fulfilled lives.
