11:30 Virginia Mallin hosts Climate Café

Bring a cup of tea on-line and join Campfire and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist Virginia to share a reflective and experiential space together.

To retain some intimacy numbers will be limited to 15 and the meeting will need to be locked once that number is reached.

The central aim of a Climate Café is to give permission for conversations that can be difficult to have with family, friends, colleagues. We will hold an open, confidential and non-judgemental space for feelings that can be hard to share or even fully articulate to ourselves, about climate breakdown and related issues - for example, feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, panic, deep grief, anger, frustration, as well as deep connection to the planet and love for it. Climate Cafe isn't a space to fix, discuss facts or plan actions, it's more a 'door to open' for expressing and holding how we might be feeling in the face of the enormous challenges of living in these times.

You may wish to bring a poem or an object that has meaning and connection to the Earth or their own life eg a stone, or other emblem.

17:00 ‘What is the common good?’

"The concept of the common good, the notion that we may have to do some things that we don’t want to do in order to achieve a greater goal is anathema to libertarians” said Billy Bragg in a recent Campfire syndicated article.

Curiously, progressive and traditionally left-of-centre thinkers are now advocating conforming to the governmental and mainstream media narrative around Covid vaccination compliance, passports and even mandated injections.

How many freedoms do we need to sacrifice for increasingly divisive systems which seem to be rapidly breaking down society rather than working for the good of humanity?

Creating communities, raising awareness of the ‘mass formation’ taking place, shifting levels of consciousness, challenging government narratives are all valid examples of working for the common good.

What does ‘the common good’ represent for you? What can we each do to make the changes we feel are best for us collectively?

Hosted by Humans United in Mutual Aid Networks (HUMANs)

20:00 Nothing like Action in the Present Moment

How division through social media and TV works
Why do we have such opposing views of the narrative around compliance?
It is time collectively to create the new paradigm…

Steve Lee has been founder, creator and presenter of Glastonbury Radio 432, local community radio station for  7 years. “Having spent the last 7 years developing new radio formats, I felt it was time to create a new radio station relevant to our changing world”

12.00 Freedom Café

Led by transpersonal psychotherapist , a lifelong activist for the environment and for truth, grandmother, writer, traveller, and gardener Tamara Alferoff.

Where there is Fear, Freedom flies out of the door.

We are currently enduring a period of severe limitations on our freedom of movement, freedom to meet, freedom to have sovereignty over our own bodies, freedom to go to work or school or university, freedom of interaction and conversation.

We humans are social beings, tribal, needing community to flourish and to grow.  When all interaction becomes virtual, we lose something fundamental and essential of our humanity. When all our conversations and discussions are mined for dissent or for data, we shut down, become self-censoring, fearful, and suspicious. We get devious, evasive, critical and separate.  While we are afraid, we can never be free.

So how might we find freedom, where may we look for it, how encourage it in ourselves and in others, and especially for the young now two years into repetitive restrictions?  Whole and small breakout group discussions. As personal as you wish.

Let’s explore together.

14:00 ‘Inner Ecology’ with Aliki Ko

Inner Ecology, by Aliki Ko, Spiritual Entrepreneur and Founder of the warriors4elements tribe

"From the 4 elements of nature (earth, water, air and fire element) to the 4 human bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body)...
From the 4 human bodies to the 4 capitals of our lives (financial, social, intellectual and spiritual capital)....
From the 4 capitals back to the 4 fundamental elements…

The system of warriors 4 elements ties together concepts that at first glance seem unrelated: nature, business and social structures for an enhanced balance in all types of ecosystems, human, natural and societal.
We will be knitting the story of entrepreneurship as a force for good, the solution to a world in need of regeneration from inside out."

More information about warriors 4 elements here:

Aliki Ko is a dreamer inside a doer’s skin. She believes in the infinite potential of human kind and is dedicated to transforming business into a force for good. Founder of Mindful Experience GmbH she creates practices & tools for human upgrade through cutting edge science of consciousness on Water for comm-UNITY, grids of regenerative destinations like Conscious Gems, innovating pathways for deep human trust and sustainable models of exchange of the 4 capitals. Aliki doesn’t get bored of exploring the limits of human connection through immersive experiences, collective intelligence methods and deep connection between business and (our) wild nature as Warriors 4 elements.

18:00 Lighting The Paros Beacon (20:00 Greek time)

As the world changes, we are having to look at new ways of meeting, with unvaccinated being locked out of everyday life (hopefully temporarily!). We are exploring setting up a group that might arrange some get-togethers in our houses for chat, music, food, drinks, maybe yoga, whatever takes peoples fancy, so we can make the most of a long winter.

Who’s game? Perhaps we can start here with a forum for new ideas? This group is open to all

We are also in the early stages of planning what we intend to be a multi-day mixed arts event week-long event at the end of next season. Provision date is September 22-28 on Paros. The event is planned to include talks, conversations, yoga, meditation, arts, crafts, music and dance. Connection and social transformation is at our heart, whether around the development of sustainable tourism, eco-consciousness, localism or spiritual development and wellbeing techniques.

What would you like to see the Paros Beacon getting involved with? What would you like to see at the September event?
What are the things happening on Paros that are most interesting you at this time?
