Staying still in yourself and being who you are.

In the midst of this ever-changing, challenging world of ours – both in the large sense and also in the individual sense – the experience of who we really are can appear far away, not within view.

Drawing upon the wisdom of Plato, Christian scripture and a range of contemporary guides, let’s see if we can rise above what often appears to be all consuming in our daily lives in order to connect with what matters.

And in doing so, find joy and effectiveness, with much to give.

Why ‘my way’ turns out to be the wrong way (and what else is available to us).

This interactive presentation looks at why pursuing ‘my way’ only leads to frustration and complications.

If you have ever been at the beck and call of events, with a feeling of being at their mercy – with even more coming around the corner then this presentation is for you!

But is there an alternative and what is it?

Let’s open ourselves up to a possibility that there might be a more expansive, freer approach to life and all that it has to offer us.
