last Event - cocktails & conversation, jun 17

For this event, our speakers were acclaimed authors, entrepreneurs and visionaries, all with a keen eye on the bigger picture - compassion, health/wellbeing, education and progress.  The event was free entry and donations were made to the Grenfell Tower fire fund (via British Red Cross).

Rachel Kelly

Rachel Kelly is author of two books - Black Rainbow and The Happy Kitchen. She is also a mental health campaigner and seasoned speaker.

In her early thirties, Rachel suffered two major depressive episodes. These two episodes have become the defining events of her life. Since then, she has written about the condition and her recovery, in books that have been read by tens of thousands of people.

George Gabriel

George Gabriel is founder of SafePassage.org, an organisation that focuses on protecting and relocating the "lost children" that arrive parent-less on European shores.

Safe Passage have successfully ensured the safety of at least 1,000 children as a result of their work on the ground.

To date, a further 2,000 children are unaccounted for since arriving in Europe, and George will update us on the current situation.

James Wallman

James Wallman is a journalist, author, and keynote speaker. He has written for the New York Times, Sunday Times and the Financial Times amongst others.

His 2015 publication, Stuffocation, discusses the 21st century trend of acquiring "stuff" in a bid for happiness, and suggests that, instead, just a little goes a long way.

James is a highly in-demand speaker and we are honoured that he will be joining our event. He will be giving his talk for free, but asks for donations to the Grenfell Tower fire.

Our social gatherings are held here four times a year. 

We give space to our thoughts and listen to those who have been courageous in stepping outside the box to follow their purpose. The setting is informal and friendly. The floor is open to the expression of thoughts, gather feedback or just listen to the real life stories of those invited to speak. 

We also encourage our participants to meet, explore and discuss life goals, experiences and aspirations.

The subject matters can be intimate and personal (should a “mid-life crisis be re-phrased as a “mid-life awakening”?) or general topics (will the Facebook generation require tutorials on recognising facial expressions?).

Our aim is to facilitate a gathering that allows us to speak with a wholesome freedom,  listen with an open mind and discuss with honesty and empathy.

For further information on dates and location please contact us.

Today’s Santhosh class really helped me. I was feeling very stressed: about the work I just started again, about the balance between work and my family, about living in a big city and how it can get under our skin. Dancing was the answer. Thanks for the joy, Santhosh!
