29 October 2022
Black History Month in the UK
What was the event about?
No Evolution without Dissolution
cycle of change towards ONENESS
Mind, body and spirit change from old to new, from order to chaos. When a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly it is death for one and beauty for the other. In the silence of the cocoon, we connect with our imaginal selves that help us envision the beauty and purity of who we truly are.
Please join us on an experiential journey of interactive dialogue, music and story-telling in embracing our emotional and spiritual evolution.
Clarke Peters is an actor, director and philosopher. When asked in a Guardian interview about these tough times, he said, “We’re being tested. Our patience, our tolerance, our altruism, our love. It feels to me that it’s that time. Use it for your growth. That’s how we’ll get through this. And hold on to the things you value because we’re in for a rough ride.”
Clarke has worked seamlessly across theatre, film and television for four decades. As well as his acting roles, he is an accomplished director and musical book writer, most notably for Five Guys Named Moe, which was a long running production in the West End and on Broadway. Among his many roles Clarke recently starred in Spike Lee's critically acclaimed Netflix film, DA 5 BLOODS. The film was named Best Film Of 2020 by the National Board Of Review and has earned Clarke several nominations (including NAACP, SAG Awards, and BAFTA) for his performance. Clarke also had a supporting role in the Oscar winning film, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI. His illustrious television career includes series regular roles including fan favorites: 'Lester Freamon' on HBO's THE WIRE and 'Albert Lambreaux' in TREME.
Clarke practices meditation and has been a student of the Brahma Kumaris for over 25 years.
