Presenter: Georgia Remond 

Energy flows where attention goes. A vision board is a collection of images and words that reflect our dreams and aspirations.  This is where you bring to life, in the physical form, your best and future self by focusing your goals on any of the areas from health, wealth, relationships, home, career and lifestyle.  We will look at creating the board, what it takes to change old patterns and how to use vision triggers.

Presenter: Raymond Stern 

We will follow the 1,000 years of classical antiquity centered on the Mediterranean Sea, comprising the interlocking civilizations of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. This period saw the rise and fall of great empires and greatly affected all walks of life including the path taken by architecture. With Greek architecture, sublimity reached great heights. Expressing power was dominant for Roman architecture.

We know that as far back as the 1700s, there was a black composer of classical music. Come on a musical adventure as we hear about black composers, many of whose music was silenced by a world that celebrated white men. Listen to their music and you be the judge. Should these names be known?

Presenter: Angella Lambrou 

This lecture will explore the life of George Bizos, who, at age 13, fled the Nazi occupation of his native Greece to become one of South Africa’s most prominent human rights lawyers. He served as counsel to the leaders of the liberation movement and devised a three-word phrase that may have shielded his client and life-long friend Nelson Mandela from execution.
