groups.yahoo.com/group/croydoncrows/.. A friendly monthly moot for all pagans. Check group for details of venue. We meet third Monday of the month. Occasional speakers. Newcomers very welcome.
Speakers with expertise in the areas currently referred to as mind, body and spirit are invited to give monthly talks. These are often experimental and inspire learning, sharing, discussion and personal growth. Evenings end with refreshments and a light-hearted social in which you can mingle with like-minded people who have similar interests.
For thousands of years those who believe they have undergone deeply transformative mystical experiences have often found it difficult to comprehend what has happened to them or to convey the experience to others. Now, for the first time, up-to-the minute brain research is beginning to throw some light on what may be happening and some of the results are extremely fascinating. This talk will continue to explore the question of direct religious and spiritual experience in the light of these discoveries.
Many of you will already know Bob from his previous talks on a variety of topics. He is a great enthusiast for his subjects and always seeks to blend careful research with a wide variety of interesting examples to illustrate his talks.
You will learn a little about the principles of nonviolent communication and will have an opportunity to question, discuss and apply the model of communication that Dr Marshall Rosenberg introduces in his book ‘A Language for Life’, to your real life situations.
Nonviolence is a consciousness that engages the heart of compassion and provides us with an approach to communication that helps us even during the most challenging situations. It introduces a way of BEING that is transformative and has a vision for social change.

The theory of physical evolution is central to science today. Wouldn't a theory of social evolution also be interesting and useful? Spiral Dynamics shows the stages, or memes, between caveman and Buddha in a simple colour-coded easily understood chart.
Its insights are being applied by philosophers, spiritual teachers and politicians today, particularly in the area of conflict resolution. The theory controversially appraises our own predominant meme: political correctness does not emerge well. A new perspective upon humanity or a flawed pseudo-science? Decide for yourself!
Bernard was formerly a lecturer; Spiral Dynamics has coloured his outlook for several years since reading articles and attending lectures and workshops on the subject.
