Come and listen to one of the world’s leading experts on Meditation who will be speaking at the Forest Park Community Centre. The Guru will be speaking about how meditation is a powerful relaxant – and relaxation is the doorway to the deeper levels of the mind where we find greater intuition, awareness, perception and also, strength. More inner strength allows us to have greater self-esteem, which converts into confidence
As it is Spring, learning FISU Meditation is like an internal “Spring Clean” – it’s like a fresh start. Sometimes, we want to rewind our lives back to a good point, but as we know this is not possible, so it is important we ensure the future is going to be bright – so it’s time for a fresh start.Free Entrance

Worklight Theatre’s award-winning show Labels. The show is currently on a UK tour and it will be playing at South Hill Park Theatre on the 18th May.
Labels draws on writer and performer Joe Sellman-Leava’s experiences of being mixed heritage to explore broader issues of racism, immigration and displacement. Labels examines how we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric.
Labels was inspired by a racism and equality workshop, led by Oscar-winning writer, actor and activist Emma Thompson, at Exeter University in 2009. It premiered in the wake of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Europe and fierce debates around migration and refugees. On reading the script, Thompson, who has spoken out against the UK’s response to the crisis, said, What a terrific piece. I love it. Simple, powerful, important and funny
