Dr Rebekah Graham – Researcher

An emerging researcher in the area of food insecurity and poverty, Rebekah’s PhD was conferred in 2018 by Massey University.

Sarah Thomson – Lawyer and Environmental Advocate.

Stepping up our game on climate: how can Hamilton become a low carbon city. If the world is to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C, we must cut emissions in half by 2030. How are cities around the world leading the way in becoming more sustainable, and what lessons are there for Hamilton? What are the key actions Hamilton can take right now to respond to the challenge of climate change and become a more resilient city?


Phil Grey – Free FM

Phil Grey has dipped in and out of radio – Contact FM in the 80s, as manager of what’s now Free FM since the early 2000s, and as project leader of a nationwide podcasting platform that is on track to deliver 2.5 million podcast hits this year. What’s always driven him is a thirst for discovery – of new music, but more eagerly of obscure music of the past. His love for one era in particular underpins the success of a unique locally made podcast with followers around the world.


Matthew Bannister – Musician, Writer, Wintec lecturer

Matthew Bannister is a musician and writer. Matthew is part of band Sneaking Feelings, a band instrumental in defining the "Dunedin sound" with Flying Nun records. The band recently reformed to acclaimed tours across the country. He also works on his solo projects including local band The Changing Same. He will be discussing his recent work a version of The Beatles classic Rubber Soul.


Meliors Simms - The Holistic Tooth Fairy

Meliors Simms is the Holistic Tooth Fairy, an online natural oral health coach who helps people of all ages, all over the world, to heal and prevent tooth decay and gum disease with natural and intuitive strategies.


Christina Campbell – Midwife adventurer

Hamiltonian of 23 years, a community midwife who has delivered over 1000 babies, was motivated to embark on this journey to ‘give back to the community’ when Community Midwifery is struggling to gain adequate support from Government resources. In my previous Tron-life I enjoyed extensive travelling, hiking, & participating in international expeditions such as the British ‘Operation Raleigh’, and ‘The Great Jukung Race’(2500km seafearing adventure in a primitive boat). This expedition was an opportunity to mix adventure with a purpose within an international community of Pilgrims.

I am teaching in Raglan this Wednesday evening 10/7. A few tickets are left for my Depression Skills workshop. Feel free to share with your friends & Whanau.
.
Would you like to feel more happy & confident? Would you like to feel excited about life again & optimistic about your future? If a suicidal thought visits you, would you like some strategies to better manage it?
.
It's common to have sadness visit sometimes. However, if you are bothered by sadness, low mood, feeling blue or irritable, more days than not, it might be clinical depression. Depression is so common that the World Health Organization (WHO) says that it will be one of the world's greatest problems by 2020.
.
Our habits of thinking, and how we label things, has a huge impact on our mood. Our style of thinking can be a fuel for our Depression. So can our lifestyle choices.
.
I can teach you new ways to think & new lifestyle skills known to help improve mood so that you can start to feel more energetic and happy again. It has been my experience, that most people whom I work with, can resolve Depression without the use of medications.
.
During our workshop, you will be able to better understand how your mind works, learn specific strategies to decrease Depression symptoms so that you can be on your way to feeling more energetic & positive again.
.
Confidential, low cost (approx $27 per workshop), one koha seat per workshop, maximum of 11 people only. If you feel shy, you can just listen in. A plant based tea service is included.
