January 2017’s Assembly will be hosted by Laurence on the theme of “Slow”.
There is a growing “Go Slow” social movement dedicated to shifting the balance of our lives towards slowing down a little, taking a bit more time to focus on what we’re doing, to avoid rushing through all our activities at such a hectic pace that we can’t appreciate the fine details.
Does this mean we’re now all supposed to start doing everything at snail’s pace? Of course not! “Fast” has its place – we can all experience the excitement and thrill of a busy pace of life when appropriate. Speed is a fantastic aspect of human experience. Nobody would be all that keen to watch an Olympic event called “The 200m mindful observation stroll”. You wouldn’t buy a car that only took you up to 15mph just to make you really take in your surroundings… It’s all about that key word, BALANCE. The “Go Slow” movement is all about reconsidering how we manage our time, how we can actually achieve and enjoy more by doing less, and how to strengthen our relationships through giving people our genuine time and attention at a pace that allows everyone to grow together.
So, please join us on Sunday 29th January 2017 for another fun-packed event with great songs, great talks, great company and the ever-present great cake! We look forward to welcoming you!
