Auckland Fringe Event: I DIDN'T INVITE YOU HERE TO LECTURE ME

Seven years of asides – the stuff that didn’t make it to the PowerPoint, that had only marginal relevance: the throwaway things that person gesturing up the front didn’t even know they were saying.


They did say them, and someone was writing them down.


This Auckland Fringe, your lecturer returns to deliver all the digressional wisdom that wasn’t scripted, that might have meant more than the 1,680 hours that were.


Gather your best-thinking friends and have this orator of the in-between serve you up a 50-minute degree in just about everything. 
 

Writer/Producer – Amy Mansfield
Performer – Mika Austin

J.T. Grainger is a new fantasy/science fiction author based in Indianapolis, Indiana. In his spare time, he works in public education and provides support and services to students with special needs. He holds a degree from Indiana University, loves traveling and spent a period of eight years writing and revising the manuscript for his four-part fantasy fiction series, The World Beyond the Stairs.

On her drive home from work, Mary Reynolds is caught in a horrific ice storm and takes refuge at her grandmother's house for the night. Unbeknownst to her, she opens an invisible passageway to a strange new world called Divinity. In this wondrous land, adults resemble children and all living creatures communicate through a special telepathic bond. Unfortunately, Divinity is governed by Count Devursuraac who rules with an iron fist as he challenges all those who refuse to follow his unjust laws. As Mary discovers the beauty and horrors of Divinity, she and her companions search for a way that will take her back home to her husband and children. Reality or a dream? You decide.

Free Talk: Louise Hay and her Workshops

Free Talk: Louise Hay and her Workshops

About Louise Hay:

Called “the closest thing to a living saint” by the media, Louise Hay was also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body.

 In 1984, her new book, You Can Heal Your Life, was published. In it, Louise explains how our beliefs and ideas about ourselves are often the cause of our emotional problems and physical maladies and how, by using certain tools, we can change our thinking and our lives for the better. Louise was able to put her philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. She considered the alternatives to surgery and drugs, and instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer.

‘You Can Heal Your Life’ reached the New York Times bestseller list and remained on it for 13 consecutive weeks. More than 50 million copies of You Can Heal Your Life have been sold throughout the world. Twenty years later, due to her appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the book was again on the New York Times bestseller list. The first time in publication’s history has that happened!

Louise also started Hay House, Inc., a successful publishing company. What began as a small venture in the living room of her home has turned into a prosperous corporation that has sold millions of books and products worldwide. Hay House authors include many notables in the self-help movement, including Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Suze Orman, Doreen Virtue, Esther Hicks, Jorge Cruise, Marianne Williamson, Caroline Myss, Cheryl Richardson, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Tavis Smiley etc.

About the workshops:

These workshops are entirely based on Louise’s healing techniques and positive philosophy. After attending these workshops, millions have learned to create more of what they want in their lives–more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits.

These workshops can be attended in various formats, the 2-day format being the most popular. It can also be attended over 10 weeks (a 3-hour session/week). Using the same principles, various shorter workshops (3-4 hours) are also conducted which focus more deeply on a single aspect. The Heal Your Life ® Workshop leaders undergo a thorough in-house training and after all the necessary qualifications are met, the graduates are officially licensed and authorized to extend their teaching to others. Currently, there are numerous teachers who regularly conduct these workshops in over 70 countries and continue transmitting the work of Louise Hay.

Special Event: The Bookshop Movie Preview

Time Out Bookstore, alongside Trigger Marketing, are pleased to be able to host a preview screening of The Bookshop at Rialto Cinemas Newmarket.

About the film: Directed by Isabel Coixet (Learning to Drive) and starring Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy.

Set in a small town in 1959 England, it is the story of a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield.

The Bookshop is a sumptuous cinematic adaptation which celebrates Bibliophilia itself, based on Penelope Fitzgerald's celebrated novel of 1978.

“A good book is the precious life-blood of a master-spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life, and as such it must surely be a necessary commodity.”   Penelope Fitzgerald - The Bookshop

Author Event: Expecting Sunshine by Alexis Marie Chute

6:30 PM18:30

Author Event: Expecting Sunshine by Alexis Marie Chute

Pre-order your book here.

Expecting Sunshine tells the story of a mother, Alexis Marie Chute, who set out to rediscover her identity – not only as a parent but as a woman and artist – after her son Zachary died in her arms at birth. The memoir’s clever structure mirrors the gestation of Alexis Marie’s subsequent pregnancy; the book beginning with conception followed by three sections, the three trimesters.

Through powerful flashbacks, readers learn of Alexis Marie’s pregnancy with Zachary and his few moments in the world, witnessing how grief touches every aspect of family life, though in different ways.

Expecting Sunshine chronicles the struggles and stresses of Alexis Marie’s next pregnancy. She is on a mission to find healing just in time to welcome her next child, yet even imagining giving birth to a baby that lives proves a major roadblock. Along the way, Alexis Marie grapples with her strained marriage, a silent faith, and medical decisions with huge ramifications.

Exploring this universal yet taboo type of loss, Chute’s memoir meets the need for personal narrative that addresses the most intimate vulnerabilities of grief and the agony and guilt any mother feels when she cannot fulfill her one most crucial role: to protect her child. Readers will cheer-on Alexis Marie in her clumsy yet noble search for healing, which will be a balm and encouragement for anyone struggling with loss.
