Tea and Time: A Conversation on Diverse Worldviews

One Thursday, April 15 at 3 – 5 P.M. | Compass Bank, 2001 Kirby at San Felipe, Second Floor

Lois Stark, a documentary filmmaker, will present a visual fast forward ride through history, highlighting the organizing images and essential stories that create our worldviews through time. Early humans saw the world as a web—an interconnected, cycling whole. Western civilizations viewed the world as a ladder—a linear, measured, goal-driven hierarchy. Our world today can be seen as a double helix—merging the rapidly evolving and the enduring. Please join us afterward for tea and conversation with our speaker.
