Conference Director Prof. Les Lancaster introduces Prof. Grevel Lindop, who brings a wealth of insights into the workings of consciousness and the power of creativity. With over 50 years of experience teaching Buddhist meditation and a remarkable collection of poetry, Grevel also offers a leading voice on the literary group the Inklings. Founded by J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, this close-knit literary group based in Oxford included renowned authors, scholars, and thinkers who shaped the landscape of 20th-century literature and academia.

And why does Grevel think that Tolkien is particularly relevant? Let’s see… As Grevel explains, Tolkien, the mastermind behind “The Lord of the Rings,” wasn’t just a fantasy writer. He was a visionary who understood the profound shifts of an era, much like what we’re experiencing now. Tolkien’s work is more than just epic fantasy; it’s about the end of an age and the dawn of something new. Similarly, we find ourselves at a crossroads, shaping the future with our daily actions and the opportunities we seize.

Join us as we explore the spirit of renewal and creativity at Eurotas Creative Bridges. Together, let’s embark on a journey of exploration, connection, and boundless imagination! ✨

“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future” – Galadriel, Lord of the Rings
