Australian History in Action

This 16 week course over two terms covers unique events in our history of "exceptionalism". How we have evolved, diverged from and melded into today's society from the 1600's. It is not a time and events list, but an interactive course bringing our real history alive.

Celtic Spirituality

This course explores Celtic spirituality through the study of the history of early Christianity in Britain and Ireland. It also examines the spirituality of two sixth century saints, Columbia and Columban, with a view to developing and enhancing our own spirituality. Because of the inclusive nature of Celtic spirituality, the course
is structured to appeal to those of all faiths and beliefs, including atheism.

Symphonic Sounds

This course is designed to be un-designed and to evolve. We will be listening to classical music and talking about it. We are not experts, but appreciate this sort of music and hope we will entice like-listening people, from
un-initiated beginners to local maestros. We envisage a two hour session with a major piece, and a break for
discussion and refreshments, followed by shorter pieces - but you may know better.
