"Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight. She helps us to discover what matters most. And the good news is we don't have to wait until the end of our lives to realize the wisdom that death has to offer."

In this fascinating talk, Frank will share the distilled, hard-won lessons synthesized from 30 years of being with dying. He will introduce his The Five Invitations, principals that show us how to wake up fully to our lives. They can be understood as best practices for anyone navigating a life transition, coping with loss or serious illness or a personal crisis; they guide us toward appreciating life's preciousness.

Weaving together pragmatic tools, real life stories and ancient wisdom, Frank helps us discover how an awareness of death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, forging a rich and meaningful life free of regret.

Directed by Gurinder Chadha, VICEROY'S HOUSE tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India.

Viceroy's House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (played by Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.

The film's story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision which consequences reverberate to this day ...

Topic: What's new? What's free? What has value?

Each year, new technology hits the "shelves" that pushes our community into the next chapter of technological advancement and normalization. Not only is it important to know about opportunities created by new tech, but also which technologies generate value for users versus those that can be a waste of time. Join us for a workshop about the possibilities that new technologies create, which apps and services are free of charge and worthwhile, and what technologies (health, VR, AI) are creating value for us at an exponential rate.

Refreshments will be served.

A day to bring awareness to the topic of Diabetes!

Join us to celebrate World Diabetes Day (WDD).

Led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), World Diabetes Day is celebrated annually on November 14 - the birthday of Frederick Banting, whose work with Charles Best led to the discovery of insulin in 1921. This year, it is also the 10th anniversary of the blue circle - the international symbol for diabetes awareness. It signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes epidemic.

WDD 2018-19 key messages: The primary aim of the World Diabetes Day and World Diabetes Month 2018-2019 campaign is to raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family and to promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of the condition.

There are three main focus areas:
● Discover diabetes
● Prevent diabetes
● Manage diabetes

Plot Summary from IMDb. "Ron Hall lost track of what matters most in life. It took an affair, a confession, a dream and an unlikely friendship with a homeless man to help him remember. From the outside, Ron Hall's seemingly charmed life looked pretty perfect: He had a flourishing art business, a beautiful wife, two fine teen children and an amazing 15,000 square foot house in Fort Worth, Texas. But appearances can be deceptive."
