Soteria in the Pub: the Story of the UK’s first Soteria House with Soteria Bradford’s Jen Kilyon
- September 29th 2016
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Soteria Bradford opened the UK’s first independent Soteria House. In the first 6 months they supported five people in crisis and their families using the Soteria philosophy of ‘being with’ rather than ‘doing to’ or ‘doing for’, as often happens. All volunteers are trained in Mindful Companionship. Jen Kilyon is a founder member of Soteria Bradford and will explain how the house is run and what mindful companionship is like in practice. Jen will be joined by her colleague Tom Williamson and their talk will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
(Please note that Anna Arabskyj, who we had originally invited to be speak, is unfortunately now unable to come to this event due to family problems)
