Lecture/Seminar 2013 CCCBE Speaker Series presents....Adapting to British Columbia's New Era & Moving Beyond: Relationship-Building, Funding, and the Non Profit Sector 2013-01-17 16:00:00
Description

More than ten years have passed since the arrival of the first Liberal government in 2001.  For British Columbia’s non-profit sector the reforms brought upheaval, with the restructuring of ministries followed by significant cutbacks. Non profit and voluntary organizations had to find ways to respond to these dramatic changes through forums such as the Government-Non-Profit Initiative (GNPI).  This talk chronicles the evolution of the GNPI and the emergence of other funding opportunities under the 2nd and 3rd Campbell governments. Under a new Liberal government and Premier, a Social Innovation initiative was announced, sitting uneasily with the GNPI. Dr. Lindquist will discuss potential ways to fill critical gaps and to ensure a more integrated, coherent approach for government-non profit relations.

 

Dr. Lindquist is Professor and Director of the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria.

Film "TABU" 2013-01-17 19:00:00
Description

 

Director: Miguel Gomes   Portugal, 2012, 110 min; Portuguese with subtitles

“4 STARS! Exquisitely shot in 35mm black and white!” –Slant Cutting to the basics of cinematic art, Miguel Gomes weaves an award-winning story of a dangerous love affair in Africa at the end of Portuguese colonialism (with the shimmer of 1960s pop in the background), and the emotional consequences felt by an elderly woman in contemporary Lisbon. We learn of her convoluted past and tumultuous affair with her lover in the hot shade of Africa. A movie for those who loved the film-studies classes they took in college. –The Globe and Mail

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Exilic Meditations: Reflections on Displacement and the Impossibility of Return 2013-01-17 16:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series
Exilic Meditations: Reflections on Displacement and the Impossibility of Return

Speaker: Peyman Vahabzadeh
Department of Sociology, UVic

Finding one's place on this globe of exiles requires deep reflection on origins, borders, horizons, cultures, and above all, the concept of home. We are all thrown into this life and can only make sense of it by reflecting on the place through which we make a claim to life. This saga is a collective one and can only be approached through a specific form of dialogue that disregards the sovereign’s regulative claim to hospitality as the generalized condition of humanity. The lecture will highlight some strange aspects of displacement through autobiographical and conceptual reflections.  

Peyman Vahabzadeh is an associate professor of sociology at University of Victoria. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles and books including Articulated Experiences: Toward a Radical Phenomenology of Contemporary Social Movements (2003); A Guerrilla Odyssey: Modernization, Secularism, Democracy and the Fadai Period of National Liberation in Iran, 1971-1979 (2010); Exilic Meditations: Essays on a Displaced Life (forthcoming); and six books in Persian. His essays, short stories, poems, memoirs and interviews have been published in English, Persian, German and Kurdish.

Other Wisdom Jesus Circle 2013-01-17 18:00
Description

Come join me as we explore the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, the spiritual master who stands at the fountainhead of western spirituality.

In this spiritual journey, we will not be re-iterating the stereo-typical image of Jesus.

We will instead focus on Jesus as a teacher of wisdom, of the perennial philosophy that is designed to transform consciousness from ego-centered concern
to the experience of the unity and inter-connectedness of all reality.

Through various spiritual practices and exercises, we will explore the benefits of this wisdom teaching:

Does it lead to happiness? Does it help me figure my life’s purpose?

Does it lead to compassion? Does it lead to higher consciousness?

Does it awaken me to mindfulness and the sacred reality of the cosmos?

The source text for this spiritual exploration is Cynthia Bourgeault’s The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming the Heart and Mind – a New Perspective on Christ and His Message.

Hosted by Henri Lock, United Chaplain, Multifaith Services
