TALKS SEMINARS WORKSHOPS CONCERTS WINTER / SPRING 2016
Events Inspiring Heart, Mind & Soul
Meet the team One of my favourite interpretations of the Chinese Oracular system the I Ching, says “ Until we reach a certain stage in our evolution, not only do we have a need for the support of others of like mind, we have a duty to seek that support”. One of my motivations for the creation of Alternatives was to create a platform for seekers of wisdom. Our talk and workshops are at their best, places of exploration of the spiritual path. We need fellow pilgrims to accompany us as we live out our lives and find meaning in the depths and heights we plumb. I am often humbled at the wisdom and eloquence, not just of our speakers but also when our audience share their experiences. I am grateful for Richard, Venetia, Sangeeta and Susanna and our wonderful team of volunteers who give their all to this worthy project.

Mary Magdalene - The Original Feminine Archetype
Join Lars Muhl as he gives you an insight into his life’s work studying the Essenes and the Aramaic New Testament. In the The O Manuscript Lars discusses The Magdalene, which unfolds along two themes: the author’s continuing work with and parting from the Seer and his glimpse into the collective Akasha, where he is confronted with Mary Magdalene as the feminine force’s most outstanding archetype and also as a historic person. Among the book’s high points is the moving description of Jesus and Mary Magdalene’s time together and their mutual initiation in the bridal chamber. Lars Muhl Lars is a visionary, mystic and lecturer. He is author of The O Manuscript (The Seer, The Magdalene and The Grail), which has become an esoteric cult classic, and The Law of Light larsmuhl.com

Opening Spiritual Realms with Creative Imagery
Experience the latest technology with what Martha Fiennes describes as ‘film paintings’ and view her first work, Nativity. This will be a highly immersive new visual experience, which has the potential to shift the viewer’s mood to offer a positive transformative effect . This ‘film-painting’ is self-generating, ‘dynamic’ and never ending. It is impossible to predict what ‘may happen next’ as this is un-knowable. Martha considers that whatever the ‘painting’ reveals at the time of viewing is synchronistic and appropriate. The imagery echos engagement with cosmic intelligence and Martha believes that in the creation of immersive imagery we may trigger associations with timelessness and to universal intelligent energy, which we are all able to access for our well-being. Martha Fiennes is an award-winning filmmaker, director, writer and now artist. ‘Nativity’ has been showcased at the V&A, the National Gallery & Sotheby’s. Martha’s work sits in an evolving space between film, art, technology and conscious wellbeing. marthafiennes.com

The Answer is YOU!
rev michael beckwith
This talk will be richly complemented by the soul-stirring music of Rickie Byars Beckwith. In times of challenge and change, there are key questions pulling at our consciousness and our conscience: Do we search for meaning, or grasp at survival? What is authentic happiness and how may we experience it? Visionary spiritual teacher Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith describes such questions as a celebration of human inquiry that births a deeper awareness of the purpose of existence. “When you begin to see your life in a context of oneness with Source,” he says, “You will discover a meaning & purpose for being alive that far transcends any sense of limitation.” Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith is an American New Thought minister, author, and founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, California, a New Thought church with a congregation estimated in excess of 8,000 members. agapelive.com £20/ £15 concs
