By Catherine Rayne
Posted Jun 8, 2009 in Business
This event ties in nicely with the work of the study group. Thinking about how one might put the ideas of a three fold society into practise in a practical, living and undogmatic way in harmony with the realities of everyday life as we experience it. Should be an intellectually action packed day!
