We are very excited to host Lily Bernheimer, environmental psychologist and author of The Shaping of Us – How Everyday Spaces Structure Our Lives, Behavior, and Well-Being // Oct 8th - 7pm at Passages Bookshop & Gallery // Free and open to the public // Link in profile for more info and to RSVP for this not to be missed event.
Lily’s first book, The Shaping of Us, explores how the built and natural worlds subtly influence our behavior, health, and personality. From caves to cathedrals to our current housing crisis and the dreaded open-plan office, Bernheimer demonstrates that for our well-being, we much reconnect with the power to shape the world around us. Only when people are involved in forming and nurturing our environments will they feel a greater sense of agency, community, and pride. Join us to learn more about how space makes us tick and how to fix the broken parts of our world.
