SUMMER 2019 PROGRAMME
Susan McAvoy - Mindfulness
Most of us know about mindfulness these days, it has become a global phenomenon. Paying attention on purpose can bring many benefits to the individual in terms of mental and physical well-being. However, can mindfulness also help create a better community, society and world? Susan, who has been practicing meditation for over 30 years and taught mindfulness in schools, colleges and workplaces for the last 5, will discuss social mindfulness. Social mindfulness can provide insight into the way we create a separate sense of self which often leads to subconscious biases in our behaviour to others. These insights can foster 'relatedness' behaviours such as cooperation, trust and compassion.
Eileen Rolland - Tai Chi, Qigong and energy
Eileen has over 20 years of experience in this field and is passionate about sharing its benefits. She will talk about Qigong energy in particular - what it means and how it can be used to improve health. She will also help people to feel their own chi with a short exercise, which can be done seated.
Gary Kidgell - The Spiritual Path- Penetrating the Veil of Illusion
The descent of spirit into matter and its subsequent return to source is at the core of all religious and esoteric teachings. This presentation outlines the challenges and the rewards of the spiritual path as described by the wisdom teachings. Tried and tested traditional esoteric spiritual practices are described with these designed to enable one to ultimately attain a transcendent state of being whereby one's consciousness penetrates beyond what H.P. Blavatksy referred to as the 'Veil of Isis.'
