Events

We host two types of regular events in person at Cru Wines Emporium in Bradford on Avon. On the first Tuesday of every month, we welcome inspiring local guest speakers to share their wisdom.  On the third Weds of every month, we work in unity with two of our Elders to bring you Conscious Conversations. These offer a safe and caring space to share, listen and reflect so that we can become more aware of ourselves and what’s going on in the world.

We also run special one-off events and workshops including Death Cafes.

All events are bookable through this site with upcoming events shown below. When booking an event, you will be taken to Eventbrite who manage all of our bookings securely. If you need extra help booking onto any of our events, simply contact us and we’ll help as best we can.

We ask for a suggested minimum donation of £10 for our events (which includes a glass of wine on arrival) to ensure The Wisdom Space remains accessible to everyone.  All contributions are gratefully received, no matter how big or small.

Upcoming events!

David Florence on “The wisdom of the breath”

David Florence

When: Tues 03 May 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

The famous healer and philosopher Philo of Alexandria stated: “All healing of the being is done through the breath“.  Although we breathe every moment of our lives, many of us do not pay attention to the wisdom it brings. Conscious breathing opens a path to healing and resilience because it helps us to become aware of the tensions, blockages and resistances in our bodies and to calm our nervous system.

In this experiential session, David Florence will explore the benefits of conscious breathing and guide you through different techniques. David discovered the healing power of breath after he literally took a bang to the head in 2017 and has chronicled his journey on the very popular YouTube channel Evolution of Dave‘.  He is now a SOMA breath instructor, clinical hypnotherapist, FlowCode coach and NLP practionner.

Conscious Conversations (May)

Conscious Conversations

When: Weds 18 May 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

Welcome to monthly Conscious Conversations, working in unity with The Wisdom Space. 

No one has the answers to the challenges we face and it can be daunting to face them alone. Conscious Conversations give us an opportunity to come together in a supportive environment to make sense of what is happening in our lives and to decide how we wish to make the most of the time that is given to us. Different themes and ideas will be explored each month as they arise and everyone will have the chance to share, listen, and reflect. Please note that Conscious Conversations offer a safe, caring space to connect deeply with each other but are not self-help groups, nor do they offer therapeutic or medical advice.

Conscious Conversations are facilitated by Sue Brayne and Sue Judge. Find out more about them on our Wisdom Space Elders page.

Christine Giles on “HELP! How do i buy food ethically these days?”

Christine Giles

When: Tues 07 June 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

Buying food responsibly is such a minefield. We’re bombarded with messages about what is healthy, sustainable, and ethical. Often it’s hard to know the truth behind the marketing and how  to choose between buying local vs. organic vs. in sustainable packaging when many products don’t tick all of these boxes. And, when faced with higher prices, it’s hard to know if we’re paying for the ethical branding or whether we’re actually paying the true cost of creating a nutritious food item that reduces its impact on the planet.

Fortunately for Bradford on Avon, we have our very own resident expert, Christine Giles, who runs the brilliant Christine’s Sustainable Supermarket in the centre of town. For the past 14 years, she has dedicated herself to buying and selling a huge range of sustainable groceries and provisions and was recently voted the second most ethical supermarket in the UK by Ethical Consumer Magazine. So, bring your questions and concerns about anything to do with how you feed yourself and your families more ethically and sustainably. This promises to be a lively and eye-opening session that may change your life!

Isla Macleod on “Natural wisdom; rediscovering belonging”

Isla Macleod

When: Tues 05 July 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

Ceremonialist, healer, and companion across the Thresholds, Isla MacLeod will lead us on a journey to discover how we can deepen our connection with nature. She will draw upon the power of ritual and ceremony, and will inspire us with her love of moss, mushrooms, wild swimming and moonlight. This will include remembering our natural rhythms using the symbology of the eight sacred Celtic festivals. These ancient festivals embody the natural rhythms and cycles of nature which sustained and empowered our ancestors, connecting them to the wisdom of the natural world.

This sense of belonging is important not just for our own wellbeing but also for that of our planet. It helps us to perceive wholeness not fragmentation and raises our consciousness of how we must change the way we live to protect our beautiful world.
