Events

Our regular events will usually be held on the first Tuesday of every month at Cru Wines Emporium in Bradford on Avon. Occasionally, we may need to change the date due to speaker availability. These events begin at 7.30pm and end at 9.30pm. Should restrictions on social gatherings be in place nearer to the time of the event, we will postpone the event until we are able to meet in person again. Online events do have great value but do not offer the same richness in social connection.

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.

All events are a suggested minimum donation of £10 (including 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.

Maria Bez on “Wisdom in the menopause – an empowering perspective”

Maria Bez

When: Tues 1 March, 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

Menopause is not just about the end of mensuration which naturally happen to women in their early fifties and sometimes before this. Nor is it simply a series of physical changes. Menopause is an opportunity to reassess our entire relationship with who we are as a woman, our ageing process, our relationship with our family, and how we want to live the rest of our lives. It is an opportunity to grow our inner wisdom.

 

During this inspiring conversation, Maria Bez, Founder of the Nourish Centre in Bath, will be covering a range of topics including nutrition, sex, general wellbeing, and the importance of ageing consciously. Maria is a registered Nutritional Therapist, Kinesiologist and Homeobotanical Therapist. Whatever stage of life you’re at, you can’t afford to miss it!

Dr. Penny Hay on “Wisdom in creativity”

Penny Hay

When: Tues 05 Apr, 2022, 7.30-9.30pm

Where: Cru Wines Emporium, BA15 1JX

Creativity is a way of being in the world. It nourishes us, enhances our life meaning and is a tool for self-expression. Creativity and imagination also help us to see things differently – something we need more than ever given the challenges we are all facing.

Join Michelle in this revelatory conversation about embracing creativity at every age with Penny Hay, artist and creativity specialist. Penny has won numerous awards for her contribution to creative education. She is a Reader in Creative Teaching and Learning, Senior Lecturer in Arts Education and Research Fellow at Bath University and Director of Research at House of Imagination, a renowned charitable arts research organisation focused on developing children and young people’s creative and critical thinking.
