Where did you come from?

Wed 11th Feb 2015, 19:00

The Central London Humanist Group presents

"Where did you come from?" by Jeffrey Herrmann 

"Where Did You Come From?   From Genealogy to Genes ... From Family History to the History of our Species "

Jeffrey has given talks to CLHG in the past, and we are delighted that he has agreed to talk to us again, on one of his favourite topics.

Jeffrey is a retired American trial lawyer who has lived in London and been a member of CLHG since 2008. Jeff earned two university degrees in physics before attending law school. As a trial attorney, Jeff frequently presented expert witness testimony concerning scientific, medical and engineering subjects to lay juries.  He especially enjoyed exposing “junk science” propounded by unscrupulous expert witnesses. Since retiring and moving to London, Jeff has spent his leisure time pursuing all the scientific and philosophical questions he never had time to study while working.

Doors open at 6.30 pm for talk at 7.00 p.m.

Please arrive early to have a glass of wine from our CLHG Charity Wine Bar find your seat and chat with other members.

All profit from the wine bar will go to Jeff's chosen charity Crisis.

All our talks are open to the general public and free to attend but we ask those who can to make a donation of what they can afford to cover the costs of room and equipment hire and help keep our talks free to all.

The Vanished Self Returns: A Case Study

Thu 12 Feb 2015, 19:30

Adlerian Society UK presents

Adlerian Society London Lecture

"The Vanished Self Returns: A Case Study" Presented by Annie McDonald

Writer, producer, and psychodynamic psychotherapist, Annie MacDonald, presents an intriguing case study. 

Eight years ago, a young man in his mid-thirties began coming to see me for weekly therapy. Since adolescence he had been troubled by ‘severe and enduring’ mental health problems, having been sectioned three times with episodes of hypomania punctuated with periods of depression. His sense of self had all but vanished and he became convinced that his body emitted a foul odour which was uncontrollable and intermittent, and this conviction caused him great anguish. It was unbearable, he told me, being him. But, after 14 years of psychotherapy with various therapists, and with psychiatrically monitored medication, he managed to complete a Master’s degree in Health psychology, studied Yoga to instructor level, took up sport again and meditated regularly. Over the past 3 years he had developed a new self-confidence and self-belief and has now written a remarkable and detailed memoir of his journey from oblivion to stability and growth. We are currently working towards possible publication.

Annie MacDonald is a psychodynamic psychotherapist and a writer. After starting out studying psychology, she taught in an inner city primary school, became a scriptwriter at Thames Television, raised a family, produced an 18 year series for Channel 4 following children growing up (Citizen 2000) and has been in private practice as a therapist in London for the past 16 years. Her work has been enriched by courses on Jung and Adler. Her most recently published short story is ‘Avoiding the Toads’ in Tales of Psychotherapy (Karnac Books).

Tickets: Admission £7 (concessions £4) All welcome. No need to book.

CPD certificates are available.

The Delta Piano Trio was founded in Salzburg (Austria) by three young Dutch performers: violinist Gerard Spronk, cellist Irene Enzlin and pianist Vera Kooper.  

Since its founding in 2013, the Delta Piano Trio has performed extensively in The Netherlands, Austria and the United Kingdom. In the spring of 2014 the trio won the first prize, as well as a special prize for the performance of a twentieth-century work, at the 7th International S. Vainiunas Chamber Music Competition in Vilnius, Lithuania. Their debut at the 4th Salzburger Kammermusikfestival, in a shared concert with the Borodin Quartet, was highly acclaimed by both audience and critics. In September 2014 the trio won a first prize at the Salieri-Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Verona, Italy. 

The Delta Piano Trio has the privilege to work under the guidance of Wolfgang Redik (founding member of the Vienna Piano Trio) and Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), as well as world-renowned pianist Stephen Kovacevich, violinists Vera Beths and Johannes Meissl, and violist Hatto Beyerle (founding member of Alban Berg Quartet).

NOW Live Events presents

Sarah Rozenthuler - How to Have that Big Conversation

A self-development workshop in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk)

Having life-changing conversations and talking about something that matters is a big threshold to cross. Communicating effectively at work and in your personal life strengthens relationships, opens doors to new opportunities and makes you feel better about yourself and others.

At this workshop you will learn:

- How to call up your courage and have that conversation

- Speak your truth without rupturing a relationship

- Express your feelings without being triggered

- How to communicate more effectively in general to improve your relationships

This fascinating workshop with psychologist Sarah Rozenthuler, author of Life-Changing Conversations: 7 Strategies For Talking About What Matters Most, will give you the know-how to have that significant conversation, whether at work or at home.

This event is in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk) as part of our NOW Live Events ongoing events series.

Tickets: £18

START AND END TIME: 7-8.30pm

Coull Quartet

This year the Coull Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary. Formed in 1974 by students at the Royal Academy of Music under the guidance of renowned quartet leader, Sidney Griller, they rapidly achieved national recognition, and were appointed Quartet-in-Residence by the University of Warwick in 1977, a post which they still hold today. The Quartet, which includes two of its founder members, has performed and broadcast extensively throughout the UK, and has made tours of Western Europe, the Americas, Australia, China, India and the Far East.

Since the mid-1980s the Coull Quartet has made over 30 recordings featuring a wide selection of the repertoire closest to their hearts, from the complete Mendelssohn and Schubert quartets to 20th century and contemporary British chamber music. Their CD of quartets by Maw and Britten on the Somm label has received universal acclaim; in addition to being featured in ‘Editor’s Choice’ in The Gramophone, it was also described as the ‘Benchmark Recording’ by BBC Music Magazine. Their recordings of music by Sibelius and Ian Venables have also received excellent reviews in the major musical publications.

The rare combination of maturity and freshness which characterises the Quartet’s performances is often singled out by reviewers:

“Here the playing is so brimful with enthusiasm and commitment, and at the same time so infused with the accumulated wisdom of three decades, that the music simply reinvents itself as it should”. (The Strad)
