Ground Control to Major Tom: Part 1 of 3

Commencing countdown, engines on

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift-off


In the past few years we have made some changes to our lineup and some of the things that we have offered. One of those suggestions that you have been overly vocalĀ in supporting would have to be the workshops!

So for today, I want to take you on a journey to Moonbase FIJI!

In this Workshop Room we have Seven Amazing Workshops starting at 10:00 AM on Friday of Skepticon! Lets take a look shall we?

How to Build a Better Invocation

Hosted by Amanda Novotny. Since the ruling in Greece v Galloway, non-theists across the US have been giving secular or non-religious invocations at government meetings. Amanda gives you a crash course in how to get this done effectively, from how to secure your rightful spot as invocation giver to tips on writing the invocation and getting your message across.

Living with Grief without Lies

Hosted by Rebecca Hensler. An interactive grief support workshop for anyone who is grieving without belief in angels, psychics or God’s ******* Plan — and for anyone who loves someone who is grieving. Share your story, learn from others’ experiences and benefit from the experience of Rebecca Hensler, founder of the secular community’s largest grief-support network, Grief Beyond Belief.

A+: Intersectional atheist humanism

Hosted by Avi Blackmore. What’s the deal with this “Atheism+” business? What is “intersectionality”, and what does it have to do with social justice? And what does THAT have to do with atheism? Come find out!

Camp Quest: Lets be kids again!

Hosted by Cindy Cooper. Why Should Kids get to have all of the fun?

Male Shame, How it Impacts You

Hosted by Darrel Ray. Male shame is the root of many problems in relationships and plays a huge role in the how women are treated in our culture and in other cultures. You will learn what it is, how to identify it and how to deal with it in your life or the lives of those you love.

Expanding Beyond Atheism

Hosted by Amy Caswell. We’re a secular podcast that focuses on human rights (including, but not limited to: feminism, queer rights, anti-racism, religious freedom), fandoms, sex education and mental health. We’ve expanded beyond discussing atheism, because that is just one question out of many that make a person who they are.

Recognizing and Fighting Classism

Hosted by Ashley F. Miller. In America, class is often overlooked in mainstream media and in mainstream atheism. Why does class matter? How does classism manifest itself in media and every day conversation? What can you do to better recognize and fight classism, both in yourself and with others?
