Berwins Salon North is a revolutionary movement for the heart and mind; consisting of a night of the most stimulating ideas in art, science and psychology designed to change your life for the better. Join three expert speakers for three inspiring TED-style talks on the theme of ‘Sharing’, the first in our ‘Sharing, Caring, Daring’ series, interspersed with intervals allowing time for a well-crafted G&T! Expect the remarkable!
Combining innovation, improvisation and collaboration, Jazz is the maverick that went mainstream! Philosopher Dr Julian Baggini returns to Harrogate to share with you what Eastern Mysticism and Jazz can teach you about life with his inspiring look at ‘the Tao of Jazz’, exploring the relationship between process, spontaneity, philosophy and Jazz. Who knows where the journey will take you…this is jazz after all!
From music to drama, we are pleased to be welcoming actor Matt Bannister, from the internally acclaimed Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Part of RADA in Business, Matt, who has worked with clients such as IBM and Innocent, will be delivering an exclusive interactive session on storytelling, helping you to unlock your creativity and potential. Focusing on the importance of eye contact and physical presence, this truly expert tutor will be on hand to help us to understand how making small shifts in our body can lead to dramatic changes in effective communication.
Concluding proceedings, Creative Catalyst, Musician and Mischief Maker Jamie Catto (also founding member of dance mega-group Faithless and acclaimed global music and philosophy project 1 Giant Leap, nominated for two Grammys) will share his findings from his new book ‘Insanely Gifted’. The premise of the book – to ‘turn your demons into creative rocket fuel’ no-less! From infancy we are taught to edit ourselves, trimming out the darker, weirder, less acceptable parts in order to please others. But this addiction to approval is holding us back. What if we begin to be ourselves, honestly and fully? We invite you to discover your deepest instincts and unlock your true power; turn inwards to explore your Inner Critic and tune into Full Body Listening.
