The View From Here returns this week with a packed programme!
We venture from Buddhism to the Humanist movement and then through the meandering pathways of a labyrinth.
9am – John Armstrong Forbes has been a Buddhist monk, now returned to the more secular life. He will explore the disciplines of a Buddhist monk and how it has shaped his life.
10am – Alan Bartlett is a member of the Humanist Association and has established a local Humanist group. Humanists take a rational, scientific view of the world. It is a non-religious movement which emphasises compassion and empathy.
11am – Reverend Dr. Steve Nolan, Chaplain of the Princess Alice Hospice in Esher, and Geraldine Worthington, a volunteer, guide us through the labyrinth in the grounds of the hospice. Labyrinths have been used throughout time as a means of contemplation. Geraldine also kindly plays us two short pieces on a harp which was donated to the hospice.
Sunday 23rd August
