    Andy Dovey & Russell Leak


    Surviving The Chaos of the 21st Century through the Four Cornerstones of…
    Music • Life • Spirit • Love

    We are going through a period where the ‘environment’ we inhabit in the developed world is changing at an ever increasing pace (without doubt the fastest rate of change in the history of our species) mainly driven by the rapid rate of technological change.

    All of the factors we have to contend with  – economic pressures, material needs, physical stresses, mental stresses – are being thrown at us in greater measure year after year.  This places us in an almost constant state of adrenal fatigue with our ancient, animalistic flight-or-fight reflexes being stimulated many times every day.  This is very bad news for our long-term physical and mental health.

    During this event, we will look at how…and why…we have got to where we are, and – most importantly – provide practical and spiritual advice on how best to combat the effects of the bombardment we are under so that we can maintain our physical and mental health to an optimum level and lead lives that are more contented, more fulfilled, and more true-to-ourselves.

    Surviving the Chaos – PART ONE

    During this first part of the evening,  Andy Dovey will discuss:
    How We Are Wired – a quick overview of brain function and how our emotional responses work

    What Is Healthy Or Unhealthy? – a look at our mental & physical health in the 21st century

    Avoiding Being ‘Programmed’ – discover how we are all ‘conditioned’; see it happening and how to deal with it

    Use of Language – how we deceive ourselves with misuse of language and how to avoid this

    Raising Your Self-Awareness – an honest stare in the mirror to see what others see

    Finding Out Who You Really Are – the person you ‘present’ to others versus the real you

    Using Self-Hypnosis – a demonstration of the benefits

    Staying Healthy – what sorts of emotions and behaviour are beneficial

    Surviving the Chaos – PART TWO

    During the second part of the evening, Russell Leak will combine the spoken word, popular songs and songs from his own album, “Smile” to explore the Four Cornerstones of our existence…
    Music • Life • Spirit • Love

    Music – Have you felt yourself soften at the sound of a chord or a melody?  Have you remembered something or someone with the sound of a song?  Sometimes music communicates better than anything else.  Russell talks about his relationship with music, how it has helped him and sings and plays songs that reach the heart and communicate where words fail.

    Life – Life is hard, and once you accept that fact, it isn’t hard anymore!  But does it really have to be so hard?  Can we change our relationship to life so that we can understand it better, so that we can live more fully and so have a more enriching experience of life?

    Spirit – Death is the end of life . . . or is it?  Russell explores what spirituality means to him as he shares his investigation of many different religions and expressions and discusses how we can best honour those who have left us.

    Love – “What is love?”  A question that has failed many of the best thinkers. Russell explores what love could mean to us, our resistance to it, our need for it – and why there are so many songs written about it.
