About the series
You are welcome to attend any single event, however we will give priority to those who register for the whole series of five events.
We are seeking to create a community of practice around this series, and our hope is that a core group of people will emerge who would like to join us in an immersive enquiry: building up on the themes, tools and practices explored over the four months.
Register here to sign up for all five events, or click the 'book a place now' button at the top of this page to register for this single event only.
We are modelling this series on the gift economy, and tickets will be on a donation basis. When you sign up, you will be asked to pay a £1 registration fee and then there will be the opportunity to gift at the event.
St Ethelburga’s is a ‘maker of peace-makers’. We inspire and equip individuals and communities to contribute, in their own particular contexts, to activating a global culture of peace.
