Alchemy & Activism – A Beautiful Day Retreat // Sunday September 2nd at Fitzrovia Chapel, London

You are invited to a very special day retreat hosted by Amisha Ghadiali (The Future is Beautiful) and Louis Weinstock (Radical Alchemy). On this day, we will be exploring in greater depth the ancient arts of alchemy and activism. The retreat will take place in a stunnngly beautiful, deeply sacred chapel in Fitzrovia, London. The intention for the day is to transform our wounds through Right Understanding and Unconditional Love into the gold of sacred activism.

We will start the day with a ritual that will allow us to open our hearts into a space of authentic vulnerability, helping us to connect with each other and with Spirit. Amisha will lead an alchemical yoga session guiding us to bring love to our personal and collective wounds as they present themselves in our bodies. Louis will then guide an embodied shamanic meditation which will allow us to tap into the healing intelligence of Life.

In the afternoon, we will be taking our personal insights from the morning and using them to inform an expression of sacred activism. We will be discussing, creating, and sharing.

There is going to be a more informal evening ceremony which you can sign upto separately from 6-10pm where we will be inviting other people to join. In the evening we will be sharing songs, poetry, and our activist creations from the morning.

We are very excited about this event. There has already been a lot of interest so we recommend booking very soon to avoid disappointment.

What’s a patronathon you ask?? – well it’s a bit like comic relief. We entertain the masses on Facebook live for two hours in the hope we can get people to laugh/cry their way into donating.
Amisha came up with this idea whilst on a bus in India as a way to get the crowdfund moving for The Future Is Beautiful.
Why do we need support? Well, our team are working on this as a gift to the world because there are so many people challenging the dominant story we are living in – and who have ideas that can lead us to a beautiful future. The truth is, we all have! And that’s why we need inspiring and a little nudge which is what happens on the podcast.
We weave politics, spirituality, creativity and sustainability so that we can come out of our silos of thinking into a more integrated way of being.
We interview a diverse range of humans (like you). These inspiring conversations look into the darkness and difficulties of life and challenging the status quo, providing comfort and a grounded optimism.
what’s a patron?
now anybody can be a patron, you don’t need tons of cash, you can just donate anything from the price of a banana per episode to something much bigger. if enough of you do this, then we are funded by our listeners which means we can remain advertising free – and spend our time actually looking at how we can live fuller lives rather than sell you stuff you don’t need.
at the moment, amisha (host & producer) works for free, and lucy (writer) and jack (sound editor) get a very small amount for the work they do. we want to all be able to spend more time working on this and feel less squeezed!
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
** Become a patron – www.thefutureisbeautiful.co/community

** Come to the patronathon centre (Amisha’s flat in Hackney) from 6pm for a curry before we go live. Bring instruments, poems, and what not. (Friends and lovers welcome too). It’s a very late birthday celebration for Amisha too.
We will act out being on the phone lines, share live updates of donations coming in, and do some stories of the sad children deprived of this kind of culture and information. (RSVP or message Amisha for address)
