The August session of Hope’s Cafe will take place on Friday evening 6 August, and Saturday, 7 August 2021, focussing on the life journey and rites of passage.
Our Interfaith forum will change tack and concentrate on our life journey, as expressed within some phases of life and exploration and insights around birth, childhood, identity, transition and death, on an interactive and inclusive basis, with story-telling; song, poetry and panel discussions.
Our first initiative: Symposium ‘Until death us do part’. This event will take place over 2 dates Friday evening and Saturday morning:
Friday evening, at 6 pm at 6 August at Hope’s café, 243 The Parade, Beulah Park with Liam Grant, story teller, actor and poet to lead an evening on myth-telling; story telling and an open mic event. The evening will finish around 8ish, with a singing group – Adelaide Threshold Singers, who sings to the dying, in lullaby-like songs (short, repeated, words of love to ease the journey) and a meditation.
A simple meal in the form of soup and bread, with a cuppa and cake will be included.
