:: Wednesday 1st February ::
February Meeting of the Feminist Reading Group :: 6:30 - 8:30
This month, we'll be reading "The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help" by Jackson Katz to delve into the murky depths of gender studies and to look into why, according to Katz, violence against women is NOT just a women's problem. Can't wait to see you all there!

:: Thursday 2nd February - Saturday 18th February ::
Renée O'Connell exhibition :: Opening Night Thursday 2nd February from 6pm Little google eyed Sushi was spawned from my imagination late 2007 whilst experimenting with spay paints & stencils. He had a very small & short debut throughout the streets of Adelaide but shortly after a few gigs at the old Zhivago's & Urban cow studio his cheeky little face shied away from the public eye..
Recently I decided to challenge myself by taking on this project at the Reading room so I dusted off ye old sewing machine & transcended his tiny little being onto crafts & bags.. So come forth & see his metamorphosis as a crafty felty little guy. Hopefully he can warm the cockles of your hearts as he has mine.

:: Monday 6th February & Tuesday 7th February ::
Happiness Sessions at the reading room :: Monday evening, Tuesday afternoon (times TBC)
Awesome positivity workshop :: You are in control of one of the most amazing things in the universe. You are in control of YOU. 
These workshops give you skills and time to really direct your thoughts and your life.
Taking the time to cultivate new thoughts, feelings, words and beliefs can transform our life.
Mental training is like any other form of training - do it once, and it will probably be fun and have some benefits in your life.  Do it often and you become fit, healthy and skillful.
The sessions have a mixture of deep relaxation techniques, tranquility and bliss techniques, mindfulness meditation, motivation and positive mental training skills, and discussions about effective thinking, learning and memory habits.
Payment is by what you think the session is worth - our payment jar is anonymous, and no one is watching. ;)
Improving your life is priceless.

'Dreamhunter' by Elizabeth Knox
"...Set in 1906, Dreamhunter describes a world very similar to ours, except for a special place, known simply as The Place, where only a select group of people can go. These people are called Dreamhunters and they harvest dreams which are then transmitted to the general public for the purposes of entertainment, therapy - or terror and political coercion..."
