An Evening With… Ash Barker
Thursday 14th March 2024
This Month's Topic: Walking and Working Towards Wholeness
In his ‘An Evening With’ conversation, Ash Barker will be drawing upon his many years of community organising experience to explore the ways he has seen and experienced transformation. This is connected to his work in communities around the world, and will draw on some of the ideas from his latest book, ‘No Wasteland; How to Grow Seeds of Shalom in your Neighbourhood.’ He will also explore how doing his Rites in 2017 at The Bield, in Perth, Scotland, has impacted his life’s journey and how Pilgrimage plays a ongoing role in his journey of transformation. This will be a hopeful conversation that you won’t want to miss.
