Description

PLEASE NOTE: ATTENDANCE LIMITED TO FIRST 50 PEOPLE WHO SECURE A TICKET HERE. YOU'RE WELCOME TO GIFT OR TRANSFER YOUR SPOT TO A FRIEND IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE. JUST LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE.

Please join us for our 112th dinner, at a Jesse Bloom's Sacred Kitchen in Oakland.

Expect cocktails at 6:00 and our speaker around 6:45 with a family style feast introduced around 7:00, prepared by our professional chef. Wines will be thoughtfully paired with the menu.

ATTIRE: Attire is relaxed and informal.

About GOOD PEOPLE: Most of the enjoyment we gain from an experience has more to do with who we're with than what we're doing. Good People is about inspiration, community and friendships. Who are good people? They’re our best selves, when we rise above tribalism and explore big ideas.

OUR SPEAKER:

Our friend Madeleine Lansky, M.D., is a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist and consultant. She teaches medical students and residents at UCSF Medical Center, and is part of an innovative team of psychiatrists teaching behavioral health care to primary care providers in Alameda County.

Madeleine's unique perspective into the lives of children, families, adults, couples and institutional hierarchies has created a rich opportunity for her to consider gender, sexuality, conformity, and unconscious societal biases. In her quest to help liberate her patients from lives curtailed by rigid expectations, Madeleine has explored, both internally and externally, what it means to be "masculine" or "feminine," or a mix of the two!

In particular, she has taken a deep interest in our current collective struggles with masculinity as it manifests in modern American culture. How do both men and women suffer with what has lately been termed "toxic masculinity?" How do these dynamics cut people off from important emotions? Do gender stereotypes sometimes poison our chances for deep intimacy in relationships and true collaboration in professional ventures?

In a happier future, how might "masculinity" and/or "femininity"change? Should they? Can they? Madeleine hopes to create a space for us to consider which aspects of masculinity and femininity we'd like to keep, and which aspects we'd like to revise.

OUR CHEF: Jesse Bloom is a chef and facilitator. He's the founder of Sacred Kitchen, a community that brings people together to cooperate in making food and sharing heartfelt connections.
