Feelgood Learning

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Mahatma Gandhi

Learning new things can be a great pleasure and learning alongside other people is a wonderful way of sharing ideas and experiences.

Feelgood Learning is a group of local people who enjoy exploring different ideas in company with one another.  This is the group for people who want to meet new people who are also interested in ideas.  Members come from different backgrounds and age groups.  You don’t need qualifications or to have been good at school. Basically you just need to be curious and to want to keep the grey matter working.

The emphasis of Feelgood Learning is not just on learning, however.  We are a supportive group and we do our best to make members feel included and valued.

Between January and March we will be looking at the following topics:

PirateOUTLAWS AND PIRATES: BADDIES AS HEROES THROUGH THE AGES

It is a strange quirk of history that those who break the law are sometimes lauded as heroes.  From Robin Hood to the Kray Twins, there is a tendency to admire people who deliberately ignore what society sees as right and wrong.  In these sessions we will look at some of these figures and ask why they have become legends.

Vintage SchoolboysTHE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE:  THE BRITISH SCHOOL SYSTEM SINCE THE AGE OF VICTORIA

Love them or loathe them, our years spent in school have a lasting impact on our lives. These sessions will be an opportunity to learn about how school life has changed since the 1800s and to remember our own school days.

 

 

Why do people join the group?

  • Because learning new things helps to keep the brain young and the body healthy.
  • To find out about new subjects of interest.
  • To carry on exploring topics you already know quite well.
  • To meet with people who have similar interests.

Whatever your reason you are sure of a warm welcome.
