Graham Calderwood 'Buds, Moon and Planets: Subtle Shapings'
Graham will describe ongoing geometric research into the form of plant
buds begun by Lawrence Edwards. He found, and confirmed by many
years of observation and investigation, a relationship between the
changing shape of buds and the Moon and planetary bodies. This cannot
be explained in physical terms, something more fundamental is going on.
Ali McQueen Art and the Spiritual
An illustrated talk on the depiction of the spiritual in art. This will mirror my own experience of various 'paths' in life and my development as
an artist. These include meditation, magic, the Kabbalah and astrology.
Also Theosophy, A Course in Miracles, Mindfulness and Chi Kung.
Alan McManus Rooted and Reaching Out: Balancing Belief,
Empathy & Serenity
Emotional reception, clairsentience or empathy are all descriptions of a
basic human (and animal) awareness of the feelings and well-being of
others. With great sensitivity to the vibes can come a need to limit
input, to focus on what most needs attention, to balance the needs of
others with our own and also to attempt to come to terms with this
gift which may be challenging to our belief system.
