Hosted by The Royal institution

Join the team from the popular podcast Science Shambles for a live recording.

The type of science stories that make the mainstream headlines are usually those that feature big, flashy discoveries or something that means we can spend a few hours pretending we found aliens. But what about that long running research that’s taking place in background. Not in any sinister way, it’s just happily taking small steps and quietly changing the world, it just never gets a bold, all caps ‘A-HA’ headline moment. Well The Cosmic Shambles Network are putting that science front and centre for a special evening at the Ri with a live recording of their popular Science Shambles podcast. Hosted by Helen Czerski and with a panel featuring Lucie GreenSuzi Gage and Linda Cremonesi, find out more about some of the most exciting, under-reported science happening in the world today.

Science Shambles is the podcast where world leading scientists just chat about science. From cutting edge research and big ideas to popular science books and documentaries, every thing is open for discussion. Like everyone at The Cosmic Shambles Network the approach is fun, open and accessible for everyone whether you’ve got a PhD in astrophysics or are simply curious about how this universe works. Please note, other universes are available. 

What to expect?

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.

The Masks We Wear With Dr Tamara Russell

Screenshot 2019-04-18 at 17.44.30.png

HOSTED BY ALLBRIGHT

In line with this year’s Body Image theme for Mental Health Awareness Week, join clinical psychologist, neuroscientist and mindfulness innovator, Dr Tamara Russell, for a thought-provoking exploration of the masks we wear and the gaps between what we perceive, what we really feel and experience, and how we present ourselves to the world.  

Using creative multi-media combined with cutting–edge neuroscience, find out how your brain and mind have been shaped by personal, professional and cultural experiences and how this creates our realities and perceptions around body and image. Explore the gaps between the internal and external realities as we navigate our working lives and consider what is necessary to change some of the more unhelpful inner/outer narratives around women, gender and really being ‘seen’. 

Through a mixture of performance, facilitated discussion, brain ‘bytes’ and mindfulness practices find out what can be done to start reshaping our brains and develop more positive narratives around body image. Actress, writer and Coach Andreea Paduraru will be present to share her intentions and experiences of her piece #seeme from the work in progress Sensorium.  

Tamara’s book #whatismindfulness outlines the neurocognitive model and shows that mindfulness can be anything that taps into these three brain networks. Mindfulness in Motion is her guide on how to incorporate mindfulness training into any movement.
