Workshop Report
Participants photo in the Hannas Arcade Armidale

All 12 participants in front of the famous stain-glass window at Hanna’s Arcade in Armidale.  From left – Michael, Carl, Karla, Harry, Elspeth, Barbara, Joan, Dave and Carol.  Front row – Helen, Kate and Tom.

Annual SDN workshops are usually held in January, however due to the pandemic this one was postponed to April.  Michael Maher, our local host, made special arrangements, with the result that this workshop was unusual.  All catering was provided (not self-catering as is normal), out-of-towners were accommodated at the Country Comfort Motel, and we met in a room at Hanna’s Arcade in the heart of Armidale – not like the more rustic surrounds in which we usually hold SDN workshops.

The workshop program was developed on the first full day and topics ranged from karma and death to relationships and philosophy.  We visited Pilliga in one presentation and in another we contemplated humanity’s phase shift.  The concept is from the futurist Daniel Schmachtenberger

Our dinners were at local restaurants – Vietnamese, Nepalese, Thai and Indian, outings were to Gara Gorge and Saumarez Homestead, and a music concert was held one evening, featuring four of us.  This workshop was truly unbeatable value.  They seem to be getting better and better.  Just don’t miss the next one!

Fourteen presentations, 12 participants, an urban setting, and a band providing entertainment.

Some comments:

  • “Everyone contributed evenly and respectfully”.
  • “Real conversations with real people”.
  • “A level of honesty and disclosing that makes for potential new relationships”.
  • “It’s different from anything else I’ve done – would like a thematic workshop”.
  • “Stimulating content with old and new friends”.
  • “Please share links, I’m keen to get stimulating information”.
And the band played…. SDN evening concert.  From left – Dave, Carol, Michael and Harry.
