Book Launch! OYINBO CAME TO AFRICA By Dele Ogun

ABOUT THE BOOK

This book tells the story, with beautiful illustrations, of how Europeans and Arabs came to Africa, from mid-15th century onwards with their religions and model of civilisation, and how this changed the African way of life. It covers the arrival of Islam and Christianity; the Slave Trade and Abolition; Colonisation and Decolonisation; Africa’s centrality to the First and Second World Wars; Democracy and Military Coups.

Though the book is deep in what it covers the reading is light and so it is suitable for all ages. If you loved the book "A FATHERLESS PEOPLE" you will love this. If you hate to read, worry no more, the exciting illustrations tell the story even more powerfully than words.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Dele Ogun is a lawyer and a member of the Society of Authors.

LIMITED SEATING Admission strictly by guest list

Planet or profit? Can politics and economics be spiritual? Talk by Felicity Eliot Editor of Share International Magazine

As our political and economic systems break down, people are demanding social justice, and economic and ecological sustainability.

Against a background of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings this talk will explore the need for radical change.

How do we make politics and economics work for the good of all?

Join us for a hopeful analysis of what is emerging from today’s confusion into clarity and justice for all.

Info: www.share-international.org/uk

When you share you create justice. When you have justice you create trust. When you have trust peace becomes possible.

Only the equitable redistribution of the world’s resources – food, raw materials, science and technology – as an internationally agreed system will ensure a sustainable future for people and planet. Sharing is the key.

How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

Grassroots organisations like Extinction Rebellion have done a fantastic job of getting the climate emergency into the public consciousness, and with recent polls showing a surge in concern about climate change in the UK, there’s another, urgent piece of work that needs to done: educating people as to where the real answers to this crisis might lie. In the May-June 2019 issue of New Internationalist, we told a story about the ideas and actions – social, economic and political – that can get us out of this mess and preserve a habitable planet. In it, we make the case for ‘conditional optimism’. We believe we can still avoid the worst of climate change because we see the tools and movements emerging to help us tackle it and bring about the system change that’s needed.

So join us to discuss the genuine, transformative solutions to climate change as our panel consider the scale of change that’s needed, what has not worked and why, and how we can move from ideas to action.

Speakers include:

Alice Bell - 10:10

Hazel Healy - New Internationalist

Difficult, Disturbing & Dangerous Behaviour - Special Event

Dr Iain Bourne has been delivering this unique course for many years and is well known and respected in the social care field. 

His background is in forensic mental health, which he brings to the training experience. The training style used on the course is like ‘fringe theatre ’ and highly impactful!

The aim of this day is to take participants on a fascinating and practical journey through the world of violence and danger. The training unfolds through a series of critical incidents that are narrated and dramatised before the group, bringing the material to life and allowing the participants to consider in detail the point of crisis and the skills needed to achieve a successful resolution. 

It is vivid, even scary in places. We think you will get a lot out of this day!

"In the World of the Body” - Processwork’s approach to working with symptoms and illness

Illness and body symptoms often wreak havoc on our plans, and its natural to do everything we can to minimise and get rid of them. We may also have a sense of some value that they bring us. Processwork explores this in depth, based on the understanding that there is a flow of life and wisdom behind these experiences. By unfolding each unique experience with specific and precise awareness methods, we can discover aspects of our deeper selves that we have forgotten or marginalised, and find their meaning in relation to our individual and community life.

Places are limited so early booking is recommended

Please see link to ProcessworkUK website for further information or click here for the course flyer: http://www.processworkuk.org/
