The Puppetry: The Home of the Hummingbird

Leela Grace shares her story of how she came to be part of the Emerson community and the transformations she has experienced along the way...

Leela Grace

 At the age of 27, I found myself wrestling with my life path (quite naturally I now appreciate according to the principle of seven-year cycles) - the path I had followed so vehemently to my own spiritual, emotional and physical detriment. As I embarked on a personal quest to find my true place in the world, I took myself to a 'Change Your Life' event at Olympia in London. I came home with a bag of leaflets and flyers, one of which was from Emerson College. I remember thinking to myself, leaflet in hand - 'wow, I really must go there' and filed it away in a box for safe-keeping. Twelve years on in October 2015, several twists and turns and hands of fate later - I find myself signing a contract for the rental of the Puppetry in Ruskin House as my work-studio.

Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

Guest article by Mary Lee Plumb-Mentjes

Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

"There is a Lifeways Week held each year in midsummer at Emerson College in Forest Row, England.  I had heard that that this event really succeeds in keeping all family members engaged, and this past summer I went to see how it was staged." 

 

In America the word, “Lifeways,” is associated primarily with providing care for the child between infancy and three years of age, when it is not feasible for the very young child to be at home with a parent during the day.  In England the emphasis of Lifeways is the encouragement of individuals all ages from the young child to teenagers, from young and old single adults, to parents and  grandparents, to join together in the celebration of Life.

The worrying disappearance of our bee population

The worrying disappearance of our bee population

Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world's most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats.
