Rebel Book Club x Questions of Modern Spirituality


The second in our brand new series Rebel Book Club presents...

This series invites experts in their field to our virtual event space to explore the theme of the month. 

For May 2020, we have chosen the theme 'Paradise'. Exploring how spirituality is changing in today's world. 

What does the idea of paradise, heaven or peace look like to you and how might we go about finding it?

This event will explore Questions of Modern Spirituality, such as:


  • What is Modern Spirituality? 
  • What defines it? 
  • How does it look? 
  • What form does it take? 
  • What role does it play in our lives?
  • What role does tech play?

We are delighted to be welcoming Sanj, Michael and Carl to Rebel Book Club:

SANJ BHUHI
Sanj works for Headspace helping some of the largest companies in the world support the health and happiness of their people through mindfulness. He works with these businesses to normalise the use of meditation and shed light on the science behind the practice where sometimes it has been overlooked because of it's spiritual or religious connotations. Outside of work, Sanj is a dad to 4 and a keen road cyclist. His favourite non-fiction title is "Essentialism: The Disciplined pursuit of less" by Greg McKeown.

MICHAEL OLABODE
Michael is an expert in Masculine-Feminine Science and Yoga Philosophy. He teaches Philosophy, Spiritual Psychology and Eastern Wisdom + Empowerment Principles at workshops and retreats around the world. Primarily, his work is focussed on helping people build their relational self-awareness through teaching the masculine-feminine science. Micheal grew up in London and enjoys travelling, cycling, playing football, volleyball, basketball, rapping, advising, problem-solving and will challenge anyone on earth at table tennis. Micheal's non-fiction choice is: "Spiritual Warrior 2: Transforming Lust into Love" by Bhakti Tirtha Swami.

CARL FAURE
Carl is the co-founder of Stretch Yoga who have studios on Broadway Market + Columbia Road in East London, and Exhale Festival. After years of having “too much fun” in the heady world of electronic music, Carl found yoga as a soothing and healing antidote to the weekly barrage of pure carnage. After an obsessional early foray into the world of yoga, he enthusiastically bounded into his first teacher training unaware of how his future would open up. For Carl, the point of yoga is to find intimacy with yourself and the world around you, whilst simultaneously unsticking yourself from whatever you might be stuck in. Carl’s favourite non-fiction book is “Alchemy of the Heart” by Michael Brown.

We'll have opportunities to explore the 'Big Questions' in our sessions and an expo area full of resources recommended by our experts and members to dive deeper into this world.
