A weekend course with Patricia Shaw (30th Oct to 1st Nov)

 STAYING ALIVE – Participating in the Flow of Events is the name of the 2 day course which is about to happen near Sao Paulo, at Sitio Gloria ( This is a chance for alumni and others in Brazil to learn with the teacher and Fellow of Schumacher College, Patricia Shaw.  The weekend is an invitation to those whose work in the world requires them to be able to ‘stay awake’, responsive and creative in the midst of fast changing circumstances. Patricia says “Our purpose will be to encourage each other to become fuller participants in the world, ones who the great writer and teacher Hannah Arendt might recognise as ‘citzens of the public realm, venturing forth in speech and deed, in bonds of trust with their fellows’.”  All places booked.
