Tomkins Topics

Tomkins' theories applied to various aspects of life and work

2020 Annual Virtual Gathering

Dear Friend of the Tomkins Institute,

On November 21, we will hold a virtual Annual Gathering of Tomkins members.  If you are not a member, you are invited to join so that you can take part in what we believe will be a warm, insightful, and rewarding event.

The Basics

Where: Zoom

When:  November 21, 2020, 4:00 to 6:00 pm ET

Why: To reconnect as people who use Tomkins theory of affects in our personal and professional lives.

Cost: Free to members

The Agenda

The Zoom gathering will be hosted, and structured as follows

4:00 to 4:10       Greetings, welcomes

4:10 to 5:00       Member Insights – Prepared mini-presentations or conversation by members about the application, advancement or challenge of Tomkins affect theory in your lives or work.  All are invited to participate. See below for more.

5:00 to 5:10       Announcements from the Board

5:10 to 5:25       Champagne Toast to Dave McShane – You supply the beverage of your choice

5:25 to 5:40       Open Discussion – What can the institute do for members?

5:50 to 6:00       Closing Remarks, Good-byes

Member Insights

You might like to share your insights or ask your questions at the gathering. If so, we would love for you to do so. We ask only that you let us know in advance and prepare to give us some background on your topic and lead a presentation or discussion about your findings, practices, concerns, questions, interest, excitements, enjoyments or joys. 

We are assuming that we all have a basic understanding of Tomkins and that this is an opportunity for members, not so much to teach Tomkins, but to dig deeper into their use of Tomkins with others who already understand the value of the theory.

The timing of each member’s insight will be anywhere between 5 minutes and 15 minutes depending on the number of members who want to participate. We will be in communication with you prior to the event so you are fully informed about what to expect.

Join or renew as a member for $60
