Soil, Soul and Society by Satish Kumar @ The Bleddfa Centre, near Knighton

On Saturday October 7, The Bleddfa Centre welcomes ex-monk, environmental activist, ecologist and editor of Resurgence Satish Kumar. He'll be giving a lecture titled ‘Soil, Soul & Society’, billed as an inspirational and educational not-to-be-missed talk on the human relationship with the natural world, the importance of caring for and reawakening our soul, and our role within the human community and the earth community.

"In 1962, he dedicated himself to undertaking an 8000 mile peace walk to the four capitals of the nuclear world. Starting in Pakistan and carrying no money, he travelled by foot to Moscow, Paris, London and Washington DC, carrying out a pilgrimage of peace. Since then, Kumar has been the longest-serving editor of ‘Resurgence’ (a magazine dedicated to environmental and social change), undertaken another 2000 mile peace pilgrimage across Britain to celebrate ‘his love of life and nature’, has written numerous books, and continues his activist work promoting holistic and passionate living. Kumar is a world renowned and highly sought-after speaker, and we are delighted to welcome him in October to our annual speaker event."

The Bleddfa Centre is on the A488 halfway between Knighton and Pen Y Bont, LD7 1PA.

The event also includes drinks, book signing and an opportunity to meet the speaker.
