2020 Season Finale

Nick Hudson - Wednesday 9 December, 7pm (GMT +2) - On ZOOM

The True Cost of Lockdowns, an analysis from PANDA ( Pandemics, Data & Analytics )

All you need to know about the human & economic cost of lockdowns this Wednesday!

Nick Hudson is a Private Equity Investor who in March 2020, concerned about the long-term effects COVID-19 may have on South Africa, co-founded Pandemics Data and Analytics – PANDA to provide decision-makers calculated data on the virus’ cost on SA livelihoods.

PANDA is a multidisciplinary group seeking to inform policy. PANDA considers explanations that allow us to count the human costs of COVID-19 responses globally. PANDA is a collective of leading scientists, actuaries, economists, data scientists, statisticians, medical professionals, lawyers, engineers and business people working as a collective to replace bad science with good science. PANDA members work voluntarily, offering their skillset to contribute to informed policymaking and decisions. PANDA is not aligned with any political entities and is funded by its members, speaking engagements and the public.

Their mission is simple. They see in lockdown and its related intrusions on civil liberties a serious threat not only to lives but to civilization itself. 

Their view is that at this juncture, the science is quite clear on what key policy responses should be — or should have been. But this is no longer about the science if it ever was. What is required now is a mobilisation against what is essentially an enormous public relations machine that is fuelling fear and removing agency from people’s lives the world over.

Shaman Ya’Acov Darling Khan - Wednesday 2 December, 7pm (GMT +2) - On ZOOM

Invoking Your Power, Presence & Purpose

Shamanism, and a shifting society’s focus from acquisition to reciprocation, is the key to restoring our universal connection and solving our interpersonal and world issues in the process.

Ya’Acov Darling Khan, Shaman & author of 3 international best-sellers, is known for his blend of strength, humility and humour. He practices shamanism & is acknowledged by many indigenous elders & communities from the Arctic to the Amazon. He travels the world to work with groups delivering Movement Medicine, & has spoken to audiences across the globe driving the transformation of world culture and sustainability (California’s Esalen organisation, The Embodiment Conference) alongside some of the most influential voices of spirituality today, including Marianne Williamson and Ken Wilber. 

As early as age 7, Ya’Acov, the son of an entrepreneur raised near Liverpool, felt drawn to the down-to-earth connection with the spirit world that shamanism invites. With age, the calling to explore this world intensified. After struggling for years to come to terms with a perception of life that only traditional Shamanism could explain, a life-changing event changed the course of his life forever. Ya’Acov’s began three decades of study and practise with spiritual teachers and Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. 

As a species, we are in a crisis. Our work? To reach as many people as possible and support them to know who they really are, find their purpose and live meaningful lives.” 

Ya’Acov’s latest book, Shaman – Invoking Power, Presence and Purpose at the Core of Who YOU Are was released in March 2020.
