Kingsley Hall, Powis Rd, E3 3HJ

From his own intense and chaotic personal experience, Daniel Hadjiandreou shares what may occur when rapid opening to other dimensions happens without the skills and support of a loving, understanding community. He offers
some suggestions on how this journey can be smoother and less traumatic.

Isabel Clarke will put such journeys into another realm of experience into a context that places them at the heart of being human - and invites a radical new look at what it is to be human. Free for SCN members and friends.
