It has been said by some that the only thing we learn from history is that we have learned nothing from history. Well this is a group that will enable members to share what they have learned from their life experiences of which some may be still helpful today.
Our modus operandi is for each member to contribute their experience about an event which has significance for them. Examples could be educational, family, travel, financial, work, spiritual and so on. We may agree on a year within which the experiences took place or perhaps we will take a theme such as music, sport, transportation etc.
We are an experiential group and most certainly not subject focused with expert speakers. However we all can claim to be expert speakers about our experiences. We will also share what the particular experience taught us and how even today it has relevance.
Henry Ford infamously said that history was bunk. Well perhaps it was for him and others who have been bored by ineffective teachers at school or self-promoting TV historians. So come along and join in-----boredom is not an option!
Do contact me, John D Brian, if you would like to come. We meet in Oakham every third Monday commencing at 10.00am and finishing by 12pm.
