From Nat and Alan: We’ve got more interesting and informative online talks and discussions coming your way. (Please email nataliawaring2@gmail.com to get the Zoom meeting details for all of these events)

WEDNESDAY 13TH MAY – Here, Now and Beyond (Part 3) 7.30pm

We continue our fortnightly ‘Here, Now and Beyond’ series of meditative and reflective sessions creating an opportunity to discuss the impact of the Corona virus on our lives. 

At the start of the session Franca, a local mindfulness practitioner, will help us to be more present and grounded, by reconnecting in body and mind with how we are and where we are. In this way, helping us to be more aware of each other and prepare our state of being for taking part in the discussion.  Then Ian Stead, Chair of Healthwatch Herefordshire will update us on the situation for the health and social care system here in the county in relation to Covid-19. 

We will then have time for questions and in small groups to discuss how we are feeling and how we are thinking, both about the here and now and about the future.

Thursday Evening Stories for Life Join us every Thursday evening (until further notice) for the privilege of listening to two local storytellers, Austin Keenan and Alison Newsam. The stories will come from Scotland, the Middle East and beyond. The session will last from 7.30 to 8.45pm.

Friday Bedtime Stories for Children  Children and their families are invited to listen to two local storytellers every Friday evening (until further notice). Alison Newsam and Austin Keenan will be telling stories from around the world. The session will last from 6.30 to 7.00pm.

Help with the technology… Please could everyone join a little early so that we can make a prompt start? If you are new to Zoom, please give it a go at least an hour beforehand. If you have difficulty, contact Nigel Higgs on nigelhiggs@me.com

Hope you can make it!  Nat and Alan – Coordinators of the Talks and Discussions Calendar (usually) at The Left Bank Village
