Longing for Belonging – Film Screening and Book Signing

November 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Copyright usage Confirmed Helen iles

Do you feel modern life is isolating?

Are you interested in knowing what living in a thriving community looks like?

Then come meet film-maker and author Helen iles who has travelled the world with the same questions, and hear what she’s found out along the way.

Curious about the human mechanisms which support communities to thrive, Helen spends time with residents of intentional communities and co-housing projects. On her journey, she encounters the Australian Aboriginal way of dadirri, which speaks of a practice of deep listening – to land, to ourselves and to each other.

She will also be reading from her new book “Hiraeth” about her journey through communities on opposite sides of the planet from Wales to Melbourne to Spain and reflects on the path in front of her as well as the path behind.

She will be available afterwards for a discussion and Q&A.

This is a pre-launch of Hiraeth which will not be available till 2020. You will be able to purchase a copy on the night and have it signed by Helen. The book is currently still in production, more information will be available soon. Please click ‘Interested’ above to be updated or purchase a ticket now.

This event is supported by Eco Soul: Creating a not-for-profit hub and hostel in London based on values of sustainability, social change and inner work. www.ecosoulhostel.com
