• Inspirational Film Circle – Patch Adams

    Posted Aug 17th, 2014 By in Archives With | No Comments Patch Adams Banner 2 Inspirational Film Circle
    A Tribute to Robin Williams
    Fri 5th Sept 2014

    The Film

    PATCH ADAMS is fact-based story of an unconventional physician who attempted to heal patients with laughter. Based on his own book and mixing equal doses of scatological humour and pathos Robin Williams stars as Hunter Adams, a troubled young man who commits himself to a mental institution in the late 1960s.

    His experiences there convince Adams to become a doctor, and he enrols in medical school, where he is appalled at the cold, clinical professionalism that alienates patients from their caregivers. Determined to provide emotional and spiritual relief as well as medicine, Adams clowns around for his patients, getting to know them personally.

    Although his efforts seem to work wonders and the hospital nursing staff is grateful for the levity Adams provides, his methods alienate his uptight roommate Mitch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) as well as the staff and faculty of his school.

    Adams perseveres, however, even starting his own low-cost rural clinic called the Gesundheit Institute, and wooing a pretty fellow student, Carin (Monica Potter). Tragedy strikes, and Adams’ career is put in jeopardy, forcing him to defend his style and philosophy before a board of jurists determined to bar him from practicing medicine.

    PATCH ADAMS (1998) was produced by former M*A*S*H (1972-83) star Mike Farrell, who met the real-life Adams when the offbeat doctor served as an advisor to the actor’s popular TV series.

    Inspirational Talk
    Wed 5th March 2014

    Loveability: To Know How to Love & Be Loved

    “Your destiny is not just to find love; it is to be the most loving person you can be”.

    The Simple Maths of Love is:-

    The more you love – the more you enjoy Happiness, Success, Abundance, Health and all Good Things in Life.

    Conversely, not loving enough is the root cause of every problem and conflict in your life and on our planet. 

    In this evening’s talk Robert will share the key themes and principles from his 3-day Loveabiity program.

    These include:

    1) The Truth about Self-Love

    2) Undoing the Basic Fear

    3) Releasing Blocks to Love

    4) The Miracle of Forgiveness

    5) Why Love Really is the Only Sane and Satisfactory Answer to Human Existence.

    Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to spend an evening with The King of Love and Happiness!

    Robert Talks About Inspiration, Miracles & Life’s Lessons

    robert-holden-loveMy work is an expression of everything that inspires me. My whole life, I have had wonderful teachers. My family was my first classroom, and I learned enough lessons here to last a lifetime!

    At 18 years old, I enrolled on a 3-year program to study psychology and philosophy. Here I met my first mentor who introduced me to spiritual texts like The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, The Tao Te Ching, and The Dhammapada. I have been learning ever since.

    I am a student of A Course in Miracles, since 1992, and a Patron of The Miracle Network UK. I study The Enneagram, and have trained extensively with The Enneagram Institute. I deliver leadership programs worldwide, and I am a Fellow of The Leadership Trust.

    I am inspired by Tom Carpenter, my friend and mentor for 20 years, and his work with The Forgiveness Network. I am also an Elder for the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation.

    Money, Work & Miracles
    A 2-dayWorkshop with Marianne Williamson 

    Few areas of our life can be as stressful as Work and Money.

    We want to work but we can’t find work.

    We want to have enough money in the bank and find ourselves terrified at the thought we might not.

    This Two Day Workshop explores the principle of A Course in Miracles, that “Nothing real can be threatened and that Love is the all-encompassing reality of God and thus can have no opposite.”

    Love is the only eternal truth and fear is just a hallucination of this mortal plane of existence. Seeking to solve a problem on the level of effect can only be a temporary fix.

    As well as covering key aspects in Marianne’s new book The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money and Miracles, Marianne looks at the miracle-minded principles that integrate our spiritual function with our work in the world.

    A self-organising, self-correcting universe is already programmed to lift every aspect of our lives to its highest creative possibility.

    In this unique weekend workshop, learn from Marianne how to turn this principle into inner and outer abundance.

    Create Space Retreats

    Create Space Retreats provide an opportunity and environment where you will be able to enhance your practice and deepen your knowledge of yoga.

    All of our retreats to date have been in beautiful rural locations. For our 10th retreat, we are breaking with tradition and we have carefully chosen this beautiful coastal site in Seaford.

    Seaford Head is a Local Nature Reserve within the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the brow of Seaford Head sits Florence House set in 6 acres on the edge of the South Downs National Park. It stands rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways it’s location is a metaphor for it’s life’s purpose – a haven for the spirit; however the wind blows.

    It’s a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops and retreats as it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual, and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits.

    About the Retreat

    The retreat leaders will introduce you to aspects of philosophy and practices that are often overlooked during general classes, and there will be the opportunity for you to have direct contact with the teachers and receive guidance for your personal practice.

    The program will include 2 x Yoga classes per day; early morning, evening meditation & satsang, a walking meditation, guided walks and talks/workshops on Yoga philosophy – plus free time to appreciate the gardens and local area.

    Heather George

    I teach Yoga classes, provide tuition for private and corporate clients, run Yoga & Meditation Workshops and Retreats, teach in bespoke spas, health clubs, schools, for Local Authorities, at The Yoga Show at Olympia and The International Yoga Festival in Egypt.  I also run courses on stress management which I can tailor for individuals, corporate clients or students preparing for exams.

    As well as Yoga, I teach Pilates and ChiBall and introduce some of these techniques into my yoga classes.   These three disciplines help to develop coordination, postural alignment, effective breathing and core stability with flowing movement.

    My first contact with yoga was in the mid-1980s when suffering from hypertension, due to hyperthyroidism,   I decided to take the holistic approach of yoga over allopathic medication for symptom relief.

    I was later very fortunate to come into contact with inspirational teachers of Hatha, Kundalini, Iyengar, Sivananda, and Ashtanga yoga.
    It was fate that on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1999, I walked away from a serious accident relatively unharmed.  I took this as a ‘wake up’ call and re-assessed my purpose, to myself and others.  I immersed myself in yoga through daily practice including meditation and detoxification of body and mind.    A year later, I travelled to India and trained to become a yoga teacher to help myself recover – and more importantly help others.

    I believe that we are all searching for ‘PEACE’; to be content with who we are and the life we live.  However, by looking outside ourselves we constantly try to fix ourselves and others to feed our egos and ‘make everything alright’.   Through Yoga sadhana (spiritual journey) we can sublimate this ego and aspire to this peace and eventually to complete ‘Bliss’.    I started my personal inner journey that allowed me to occasionally transcend Maya (illusion) and realise that the peace is within us all and is universal.  I still embrace this journey and all it teaches me.

    I have a background in nutrition, science, NVQ Assessing and training for sales personnel for a large German company.  Along with being a Reiki healer, I am a qualified Life Coach with a Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology.   This has allowed me to develop an intuitive approach and awareness of both the physical and emotional wellbeing of students.  It enables me to tailor their practice and take a holistic view of the lifestyle, diet or other remedial action than may benefit them.
