Humanist Living Made Simpler

Jen Hancock, the author of the Handy Humanism Handbook, is working on a project called “Humanist Learning Systems” in which she will teach a number of online courses about applied Humanism, so to speak. The first course is “Living Made Simpler” and it begins May 1st.

What will you learn?

How to:

  • Make better decisions through critical thinking
  • Improve your interpersonal relationships through compassion
  • Infuse your life with meaning and purpose through ethics

It turns out that when you combine all these different techniques into one approach, you create something that is truly transformative. This is why some of the most influential people in modern history were or are Humanists. You will be amazed at how much easier life is when you make being ethical a priority.

It’s a bit of self-help, history, and psychology all rolled into one. And if you register now, 20% of the fee will be donated to the Humanists of Florida Association.

You can check out a more detailed description of the course, see a sample seminar, and register at Jen’s site.

    Ah…. sorry, but this all seems to add up to “think about what you’re doing before you do it, be kind to others, and be honest.” For that, people need to take a course?

    a lot of people do, Bob. that’s the sad part. i hope she makes some money off this; it’s so hard to make any money teaching anything worthwhile in this economy.

    I’m not sure they NEED to, but many people like a certain structure and guidance in their learning and their lives. Everyong could easily learn about any topic on this planet, if they would just do the research, but many people sign up for structured courses. i suppose it helps some.

    There exist people who want—but don’t know how—to think more logically, to be more kind, and to be more honest. None of those things are always easy, and I think everyone could benefit from thinking about how to improve in those areas.
