A talk by Angus Jenkinson
in the Eurythmy room at the Ringwood Waldorf School 10:30am

Angus is an organiser, researcher, and the author, or co-author, of 3 books, including From Stress to Serenity and Liquidity, Flowing Forms in Water & Money. He is writing a book on ecological thinking and another on the life of organisations.

Forget your age: enjoy the possibilities of the human. This thesis follows from a special gift of the human being. Unlike animals, whatever age we reach, we remain biologically youthful. This youthfulness belongs to and supports our possibility to learn as souls and be free spirits.

Playing with a song from the civil rights movement, Angus Jenkinson will explore the evidence and implications for the experience of humanity as the only species with the possibility of free choice.

All organisms demonstrate autonomy and self-realisation in some ways, but one is different. How does this appear as a reality? Does it explain the sense of a spiritual side to life? How is this practically experienced? And what has it do with the condition of being young? The implications affect social policy for the 21st century.
