Meeting Dates and Themes

Monday October 30th, 7.00 – 9.00pm – £7.00 which includes light refreshments

We will be discussing death in all its many aspects.

Come to Conscious Cafe to drink tea, eat cake or biscuits & discuss death in all its many aspects, both practical & esoteric.   On this evening, focusing on death may help you to make the most of your life & help others to do the same.  Expect a lot of laughter that may surprise you!                       

The evening will be led by Lina Newstead a yoga teacher who has had a lifelong interest in death and is enthusiastic to facilitate this discussion.

 As a well spent day brings happy sleep,

so life well used brings happy death

Next Meeting

Monday December 11th, 7 – 10pm


It is interesting to note that this time of year there are numerous celebrations notably Christmas but also Hanukkah and Diwali. The human spirit has a need to celebrate and we invite you to discuss this topic and to work on understanding what celebrations mean to us and how perhaps we can make them even better!

 Venue; St Mary’s Hall, London Road, Upper Harbledown, CT2 9AT

Cost: £7.00 this will include a buffet supper and drinks but let me know if you would like to contribute a plate of food in which case you pay only £5.00. Offers of food greatly appreciated.

The hall is at the far end of Upper Harbledown on the right hand side as you come from Canterbury. There is ample parking on the road but if anyone wants a lift from Harbledown let me know and this can be arranged.

If anyone has a problem finding the hall ring me on 07711 830275.
