Monday Good Company

Monday evenings in person and on zoom
18:00 – 20:00

Join us in Person at Colet House or register below to receive the Zoom meeting link.

We welcome all who wish to learn and share non-dual teachings to enhance inner peace, embrace fresh ideas and make new connections.

Currently presented both on zoom and live at our home, Colet House, Barons Court, the evenings open with a simple practice such as kirtan, chair yoga or breathing exercises to prepare for a shared half hour’s silent meditation followed by a presentation.

Long term Study Society member, designer and artist Jonathan Leiserach invites presenters from various disciplines including philosophers, scientists, doctors, musicians, artists, writers, and spiritual teachers to share thoughts and experience on non-dual themes.

Afterwards, for those who come to Colet House, there is the opportunity to join
The Movements to Music classes which The Study Society has offered for over 70 years.

GUEST SPEAKERS

Lucy Beckwith

19.02.2024

A mother of two boys and a dedicated practitioner, Lucy Beckwith has been teaching yoga to all ages and abilities for over 16 years. A graduate of London Contemporary Dance School, Lucy discovered yoga and meditation as a way to deal with the demands of becoming a professional dancer, as life progressed these practices became her saving grace. She is the co-founder of YOMU yoga and live cello project, teaches exclusively at Yoga One Born Studio and Soho House Barcelona and has developed her own workshops and yoga teacher training program with its roots in personal transformation. She advocates yoga as a practice that is available to everyone, a way to become aware of your potential as a human being and live your magick.
‘Yoga does not just change the way we see things, yoga transforms the person who sees’
Iyengar
In this talk Lucy will guide us through her own transformative journey and relationship with yoga. How the alchemy of the practice was revealed to her and how healing her relationship with her father who has been on his own spiritual journey for the past 4o years has given new insight into her practice and teachings. Lucy shares what she believes is central to the responsibility of teaching what is such a popular and fashionable practice in our culture today, that of the journey of the heart and recognising the power of what that journey can bring in the recognition of our essential nature.
Dr Athena Potari

28.02.2024

Dr Athena Potari is Fellow at the Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University, where she explores possibilities for an expanded practice of Philosophy by re-integrating elements and histories of the feminine. She received her PhD from the University of Oxford specializing in Political Philosophy, and her MA in Political Theory with Distinction from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), specializing in Plato’s Republic. She is recipient of the Academy of Athens Award of Philosophy for her work on Aristotle (2020), author of “A Call for a Renaissance of the Spirit in the Humanities” published by the Galileo Commission, and Member of the Galileo Commission Steering Committee. In 2019, she founded Athenoa, a School of Hellenic Philosophy based in Greece where Hellenism is approached as a living wisdom tradition whose core consists in the inextricable synthesis of scientific reason and spirituality. Her work aims to revive the deeper spiritual, experiential and non-dual dimensions of Hellenic Philosophy as a living spiritual lineage, combining discursive rigor, self-inquiry and embodied meditative practices, with the aim of awakening to the ever-present mystery of being – our true Self.
