Date Change

The February 17th event has been cancelled due to Auckland moving to Alert Level Three on the 14th of February.

We are told that the chemicals for life were created by lightning strikes in the primordial atmosphere.

Identity forms slowly and quietly during a child’s development, we barely notice. Some aspects we can choose and some aspects choose us. Mostly our identities support our life and there is little or no conflict.

Our feelings about the relative importance of our identities may suddenly change….

They may lie dormant. In changed outside circumstances, they may explode into actions that may vary between the creation of a child, or murders and rapes. Identities that seemed to fit together peacefully, may turn into internal or external conflicts, or even war.

Perhaps we should know more about our own identities……?
