Tue 7 Feb: A Gathering of Voices: Sacred Songs and Recitations for the World Interfaith Harmony Week, 3–5pm

The Woolf Institute and The Matheson Trust present a rare opportunity to listen to representatives of fve major religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, reciting and singing the fundamental prayers and chants of their traditions in their original languages.

Doctrines are often difcult to grasp, translations may distract us, discussions tend towards argument, but music speaks in a subtler way, directly and simultaneously to our combined faculties, vibrating and conveying the essence of sacred words past any mental or emotional barriers. In this event we will focus on simply listening to age-old rhythms, melodies and sacred words, transmitted mostly from an untraceable past, which are at the heart of fve major world civilisations and at the heart of the lives of millions of faithful across the world.

With a brief introduction giving the context and particular importance of each piece, we will have traditional recitations of the Vedas, Buddhist sutras, Jewish Torah recitation and chants, Christian chants and Islamic Qur'an recitation and Suf chants, for an illuminating and enjoyable celebration of the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT — EVERYONE WELCOME TEA & COFFEE WILL BE SERVED FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT: info[AT]themathesontrust.org

Tue 7 Feb: The Economics of Happiness (film) + Q & A with Sir Partha Dasgupta, 6:45pm
Due to high demand this will be shown in the big hall - still tickets available!

Transition Cambridge and Cambridge Carbon Footprint invite you to a showing of "The Economics of Happiness" at the Arts Picturehouse, followed by a talk and Q&A session with renowned economist Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, 18:45-20:45.
The film is a documentary about the worldwide movement for economic localisation. It questions whether our current economic model is damaging our well-being, exploring the many negative consequences of economic globalisation – climate change, fundamentalism, economic insecurity and species extinction - as well as the personal costs such as stress and depression. The film features a chorus of voices from around the globe - Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, Zac Goldsmith and more. Rob Hopkins (co-founder of the Transition Network) writes: "This passionate film presents a clear and articulate vision of what a shift in the scale at which we do things would look like... Very timely and powerful."
The film will be followed by a question and answer session with Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, who is the Frank Ramsey Professor Emeritus of Economics and has written several books including "Human Well-being and the Natural Environment". Tickets are available through the Arts Picturehouse box office. You can view the trailer and learn more about the movie at www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org.

Sat 11 Feb: Baha'i Musical Devotional, 4 pm

Poppy Villiers-Stuart and Kat Drake met at university and connected through their mutual love of music as a ladder for the soul.

They released the album, The Lighted Candle, as an expression of those special times, and as a hope that it will be a ladder for many souls! Poppy and Kat will come to Cambridge to sing prayers and speak about their inspiration. For a taste of their music visit http://thebirdandthebutterfly.bandcamp.com/album/lighted-candle

Sat 18 Feb: Alternatives to Economic Growth: How can we balance wellbeing with finite resources? A one-day conference, 9.30 - 5.30

Speakers include: Tony Juniper, Molly Scott-Cato, Miriam Kennett and Rupert Read, with ample time for discussion and debate.

An underlying question to much of today’s political agenda is “How can we get back to Economic  Growth as soon as possible?”.  Yet economic growth does not take into consideration finite natural  resources, social justice and individual wellbeing. 
How can we escape the dependency of a system based on continuous economic growth?  What   alternatives are there? How can alternatives be implemented and given the priority they need in our crowded social and political agendas?
This “Ideas Day” will bring together prominent speakers and activists who have addressed these issues constructively from a sustainable point of view; as well as a range of individuals and groups who  are developing and implementing practical alternatives.
Admission: £10, £20, £30 - you choose (includes lunch).
Please register in advance: 01223 425768 or e-mail: brett.hughes[AT]cantab.net

Sun 19 Feb: The Economics of Happiness (film), 14:30-16:00

Rob Hopkins (co-founder of the Transition Network) writes: "This passionate film presents a clear and articulate vision of what a shift in the scale at which we do things would look like... Very timely and powerful." Tickets will be available through the Arts Picturehouse box office. You can

There are also ‘co-exist’ initiatives, summer schools, an on-line dialogue initiative, and various research projects, one of which was on community policing.

Mon 5 March: 'Why Occupy ?' Discussion with Ian & Robert from "Occupy Norwich", 7:30-9:30pm

Table with Reasons 
   why to Occupy
Table with "What is Occupy about?" (Norwich work group)
Occupy Norwich
The Occupy Camp on Haymarket in Norwich / Norfolk

Ian & Robert are coming from the Occupy Camp (Hay Hill, Norwich, Nr2 1QE - see http://occupynorwich.org/)
Occupy Norwich, like the other Occupy movements within Britain (and the world) was inspired by Occupy Wall Street whose unifying aim is the use of non-violent protest against corporate greed and corrupt politics.
The range of views covered by the group is vast, but united by an opposition to the growing disparity of wealth. The people the Occupy Movement opposes are the extremely wealthy; those who wield a disproportionate amount of power over governments and resources, whether they be individuals or corporations.
For some of the group in Norwich the environment is the main motivator. For others it’s exploitation of the developing world.
The Occupy Movement is united in not having a single answer – they are here to think, discuss, listen, share views and take appropriate action. And they are united in their determination that the status quo is no longer acceptable and does not represent true democracy.
Aside from the Haymarket camp in Norwich, Occupy Norwich is currently moving on to a new phase of wider community and direct actions, educational projects, and a continued public forum for discussion.

Ian and Robert will also share anecdotes of occurrences, practicalities of day to day life camping in a city, the public reaction and interactions, their perspective of what the movement is about, what's worked and what's failed and what they might do in the future.

You are warmly invited to join the committee on our first guided walk.
The guide will be Iain Webb, the City Greenways Officer of the Wildlife Trust for Cambridge.

“Meditation does not mean just sitting quietly for five or ten minutes. It requires conscious effort. The mind has to be made calm and quiet; at the same time, it has to be vigilant so as not to allow any distracting thoughts or desires to enter. When we can make the mind calm and quiet, we will feel that a new creation is dawning inside us. When the mind is vacant and tranquil and our whole existence becomes an empty vessel, our inner being can invoke infinite Peace, Light and Bliss to enter into the vessel and fill it. This is meditation.” (Sri Chinmoy)

Sorry: CANCELLED: Fri 8 June: 'Power Points in the Body and in Nature' Cambridge Seminar with Cecil & Bruhn / Denmark, 6.30pm

Cecil and Bruhn are from the "Center for Inner Freedom" www.innerfreedom.dk, they are offering a series of seminars and workshops in the UK.
=> Facebook Event: www.facebook.com/events/312911802121802/
Moving from life in the mind to life in the heart is a journey we are all on - consciously or unconsciously.
On the journey, we can sometimes experience a deep congruence and harmony between the power in our own body and the power in the nature that surrounds us.
To get a deeper understanding of why this harmony occurs and how we can work more consciously with it can be a powerful catalyst in our process.
In this seminar we will work with power points in our own bodies and we will investigate the relationship between the individual body and the planetary body.
- What are the secret benefits of doing energy work in nature?
- Where are some effective power points in our own bodies?
- How can we revitalize ourselves through simple exercises?
We'll work with various meditations, energy, presence and resonance tools and teaching based on slide-show and dialogue.

Since 2002, she has been traveling internationally through Europe, Australia, USA, Japan and India to festivals and meditation events sharing music and silence. In 2006 a deep process at the Oneness University near Chennai, India led Sudha into a profound experience of Oneness and into the memory of how to access the divine source of energy. This energy is now transmitted through her singing, available to nourish all who choose to join Sudha through her concerts and CD's. => www.sudhasong.com

Ravi has developed a unique style of playing the kora (West African Harp) over a period of twenty years and was one of the first Western kora players to take this highly sophisticated instrument into new musical areas. Ravi has made 20 of his own and collaborative recordings including work with Nigel Kennedy, Babba Maal, Dr. John, Deva Premal and Miten and many leading traditional musicians. Ravi is an accomplished overtone singer and performances include his own devotional songs of prayerful reflection. => www.koratone.com

Fri 29 June: 'Blessings' - A Film, 7:30pm

Approximately 90 mins in duration. It is about the 3000 nuns in Nangchen, Tibet, who live as hermits.
In the summer of 2005 Tsoknyi Rinpoche, accompanied by a handful of western students, traveled to the Nangchen region in Eastern Tibet.
The purpose of the trip was to document the lives and assess the needs of the Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns - 3000 remarkable women who live and practice an ancient yogic tradition in nunneries and hermitages scattered across this remote, mountainous region.
During the Cultural Revolution, all 40 nunneries of this thriving tradition were destroyed and the nuns scattered. Some returned to their nomadic homes, some were sent to work camps. Many didn't survive. But a few retreated into caves to practice and wait.
Twenty years later, this handful of remaining nuns emerged and began to rebuild www.chariotvideos.com/documentary/blessings.shtml
A clip can be seen at www.chariotvideos.com/jw/html/blessingT.html
Cost: donation (dana). The dana from this meeting will be donated for the support of the nuns.
