Earth is a fascinating world with many different facets.

Running Wild

Running can be an invigorating experience. Although it is hard work, the adrenaline it sends through your system can give you quite a kick. Not only is it a good way to get a work out, but it can be very freeing, depending on where you choose to run. If you are in the park or countryside, the fresh air, and natural scenery can be quite serene.

For some people running can be a meditative experience, as it gives them time to think. It can help build our physical and mental strength, and the sense of achievement at the end can be very rewarding.

In the first of The Earth Talks series, local runner, Ceri Rees, will talk about the myths of barefoot running, trainer hype and night time trails across the moor. To book call 01803 847 070.

The Science Delusion

Do you know anything about morphic fields or morphic resonance? To me it sounds like part of a science fiction novel. Well this is science fact. In a talk by biologist, Rupert Sheldrake, he will discuss how these scientific terms create a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory. He will share evidence from his latest ground breaking new book, The Science Delusion, and explore the implications of his radical discoveries for both science and society.

Thursday 28th February, 8pm

Clay to Wheel

In the last lecture in the series, you will find out how creative the world wants us to be. Clay for instance, is just begging us to make something out of it.

You will be made privy to the techniques of pottery making, learning how to make bowls, jugs, and cups using a crafting wheel. Pottery maker, Richenda will also talk about the significance of traditional craft making today, its place within the environmental movement, and how it connects us to the earth.
