There's a lot of talk about mindfulness these days and lots of discussion about what it is. Is it effective? Does it work for everybody? Are its benefits scientifically proven? Is it a religion? And how can it affect your life?
Neil will be talking about all of these issues and will also incorporate a few short practices, and have time for any questions you might have.

The Trojan War
The Trojan War is one of the best known tales of Greek mythology but was it fact of fantasy or a combination of both? Today the terms 'Achilles heel' and 'Trojan horse’ are common expressions often used without understanding their origin. This presentation charts the story originally ascribed to Homer and guides us through the causes, the events and the outcome of the war with some images and artefacts surprisingly held in Australia.”
Merimbula Estuary Ramble
Stroll along the edge of Merimbula Lake at low tide in search of hidden treasures like Moon snails, Sea Slugs, Shrimps, Hermit crabs, Rose-petalled Bubble snails, Octopi … there’s always special things to find.
We are fortunate to have two marine educators Alan Scrymgeour and Liz Allen to lead our ramble and assist us to find and identify the treasures of the sea.
