Please enjoy this personal, spontaneous conversation with Emily Bunbury who shares experiences and insights about family, engaging with the public and bringing strangers in to your home on the 10th anniversary of the Lisnavagh’s Yoga and Sleep retreat which she started with Pam Butler and Rosebud McClintock-Bunbury.
People, Organisations, Countries, the World.
An exposition of progressive thinking for positive change.

Astraea turns 21 on 8 December 2020.
For many the 21st birthday is the threshold between childhood and adulthood, between innocence and maturity. Whatever age or ceremony marks “growing up”, people from all over the world follow a similar path of physiological development.
But emotional development can vary greatly among people in the same community, depending on situation, environment and opportunities far more than than biological programming.
What encourages or retards emotional development? What encourages consciousness to develop? Can decay be avoided?
T he development cycle is not just seen in individuals, but also in organisations, communities, countries and the whole of humanity. This emergence of innate potential and the implications for humanity will be explored and a map of potential futures based on physiological and emotional resources shared.
What does it mean to come of age?
Is the world progressing or not?
How is tension overcome?
What does the future hold?
I like weeds.
The stupidity of crippling the post office.
In conversation with Leiko Uchiyama, Master Felter
Please enjoy the experience and perspectives of Leiko Uchimaya who has generously shared them in this conversation.
Meeting Ms Uchiyama for the first time, we were welcomed in to her felt workshop, an old farm shed in the foothills of Mount Leinster, where we quickly set up the kit and started recording. Her views are straight, honest and enlightening, revealing great courage in recognising one’s own life journey despite the distractions presented by modern life.
Although we did not dwell on her craft, you can see examples of her work and explore courses at www.leikofelt.com. Thank you.
Singer/songwriter Oisin O’Neill chats with astraea about how he came to create Grand Design, released on 25 May.
Check out Grand Design on oisinoneill.bandcamp.com
We observe the strange coincidence that Grand Design was released on 25 May, the day celebrated by some for “The Glorious Revolution” of truth – a fictional event, and now also to be celebrated by us for the martyrdom of George Floyd. Let George Floyd’s execution not be in vain. The coincidence is in keeping with the spirit of Grand Design which, Oisin tells us, emerged from his passion in a natural integration of feeling, sounds and words.
Enjoy the music!
