Introduction to Freediving
BeachPeople (Ocean Sports)
6pm - 9:30pm

** The date is provisional & assumes the course is available. RSVP if interested and we'll take it from there **

Since there are no depths to which I won't sink..this:

If you've watched The Big Blue then you know all about freediving - the art of reaching tremendous depths on one breath (and coming back up - that's also part of it nine times out of ten).

Poole has a freedive club called Go Freedive who have club nights at £15

You need to have completed a 3.5 hour theory & practice course that costs £85 and is based in Bath (which is apposite I guess).

I'm going to do this ASAP then perhaps look to a PADI Freedive course if I think I'm worth it.

Public Talk by Author Kathleen McDonald: 'Resilience - How and Why'
Buddhism in Bath
7:30pm - 9pm

• What we'll do
“See things as they are and react with wisdom and compassion.” HH Dalai Lama

In the times we find ourselves, this can seem to be easier said than done. And yet, what, realistically, is the alternative? For the sake of our planet and its inhabitants, giving way to either cynicism or despair is not possible.

Renowned Buddhist author and teacher, Ven Sangye Khadro, explores what tools Buddhism can offer to lift our spirits, and to be a force for positive change in the world. These tools have been valued for more than two and a half thousand years, and still have much to offer anyone, Buddhist or not, religious or not, in the twenty first century. All very welcome. More details on our website www.jamyangbath.org.uk

• What to bring
Suggested donation to cover costs: £7 at the door
