Classes, lectures and Talks

My next programme of classes runs during November and December, 2018 (Wednesdays 14, 21, 28 November and 5 and 12 December from 7-8.30pm) at The Phil & Lit, Fisher Street Galleries, 18 Fisher Street, Carlisle, CA3 8RH.  The topic is Discovering Spirituality, and is designed for those who are curious about our spiritual nature and would like to find out more in general about mindfulness, meditation and prayer, and about the ways in which we human beings express this elusive characteristic of humanness. 

This is not a belief-based course, but draws on the traditions of different world faiths and looks at the underpinning assumptions that lie behind a consciously ‘spiritual’ perspective.

I will be holding a similar course in Hexham, over 3 Thursdays in November, 8th, 15th and 29th.  (NOT 22nd) from 1.30-4 pm, at The Phil & Lit, 10 Hallstile Bank, Hexham, NE46 8SG.

I am also available to speak to your group or society about aspects of my ministry and work. Subjects available currently as inspirational talks lasting 30-55 minutes (please let me know) are:

  • Mindfulness, prayer and meditation
  • Alternative approaches and attitudes to death, dying and funerals
  • New trends for the traditional ceremonies of marriage, death and welcoming the newborn into our society.  This talk includes a look at Enlightenment thought and the way our culture today has been formed by it.

All talks are supported by slides (Powerpoint) and music.

Please contact me for further details.
