I have been aided this week by my very calm and tired new Hungarian lodger. He has been taken to Mike with MND's house and asked to make a film for me. "Make it interesting," I said, "I want to use it on Thursday at the next AGD thing at Brighton Uni Med school." I will never know whether he came because he was unsure that perhaps in order to stay in my house as a lodger, there were certain tasks to complete, like Jason and the Golden Fleece, and he must be prepared at all times to undertake the seemingly impossible. Or that Fate showed him the advert for the room in my house, knowing that deep inside, he had always wanted to make a film with his new camera and tripod, and this was the very house to launch him on his new career.

This is what we are making the film for. It is open to the public, and is free, but you are asked to book. I will add the link to this page with the booking information below.

Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 November - a weekend workshop on Sound Healing on day one, astrological readings and healing on day two run by A Graceful Death with my dear friend, Sharon Galliford. Here is what Sharon says of the Sound Healing workshop -
Sound has a profound effect on our lives impacting and impinging upon everything we do. Even the sound of silence has an important role to play. Sound is a vibration. Everything we see or can sense is a vibration.
