New Year Meeting - ‘The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet’ by David Mitchell
Bath BookWorms

Hi all,

There seemed to be a general consensus at the meeting on Wednesday that it would be best to have our next meetup in January, what with December being a bit of a hectic month for everyone.

I had a couple of nominations for books and thought we would read ‘The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet’ for our January meting as it’s a long one (and we have a couple of months) and then read the other nomination for our February meeting.

I’ve also been thinking that it would be nice to start taking it in turns to lead the discussion. Let me know if you’d rather not do that though as I don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable.

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas if I don’t see you before then and look forward to seeing you in January :)
How Important Is The Environment To You?
Bath Philosophy & Debate Group
7:30pm - 9:30pm

• What we'll do
The recent Blue Planet II series has provoked discussion on how human kind is impacting the
environment. Most of us would agree that the environment is being destroyed by our habits - but how much are we willing to sacrifice our modern way of living to preserve the natural habitat?

What are we happy to give up: food packaged in plastic, ready meals and takeaways, heating our houses, plastic toys for our children? Our whole modern agricultural system is impacting the planet - but it feeds the population.

Should we allow the exploitation of the environment if it brings jobs? Would we accept a rise in petrol and energy prices to avoid damage to the environment? Should we have extreme taxes on plastic bags, industry and energy use?

Is it better to use nuclear power, wind or tidal power? Will these also have an environmental impact on the beauty of the landscape? Which countries should cut the most and contribute the most to stop damage to the environment? Please think about these issues and come along with any questions you would like raise.


On the night please:

-Sit in a circle and speak to the whole circle; one conversation at a time
-Aim for equal airtime; points should be:
*Clearly-structured and
-Arrive early to order drinks

The host moderates but peer-moderation is encouraged.

Free Meditation & Yoga – just show up–we start on Wednesday in Bath 7.30pm
Free Meditation & Yoga Bath
7:30pm - 9pm


Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk
