Serendipity, Synchronicity: How do they teach?
7pm start on the main floor

Barbara Lorraine Laing is a PhD student and instructor currently living in Kingston, Ontario. She is currently a Graduate Teaching Fellow at Queen’s University’s Faculty of Education studying spirituality in transformative adult education; how ‘serendipity’ teaches on the life path. Previously longlisted for the CBC Poetry prize, her creative work appears in Grain, Room, The Antigonish Review, and The New Quarterly.

In this talk, Serendipity, Synchronicity & Other Surprises: How Do They Teach?, Barbara will discuss contemporary scholarly research on themes such as surprise and cognition, embodied spirituality, and ‘wide-awakeness’, encouraging us to think about how moments of surprise can lead to meaningful (and often life-changing) learning experiences.

Valentine’s Slow Dance Feb 15th



Kingston’s Valentines SLOW DANCE 2019!

Friday, February 15th
at the Grad Club (162 Barrie st.).
Doors, Dance cards and DJs at 9pm sharp.
Formal dress encouraged (but not necessary)


Our Slow Dance is always a raging and festive dance party peppered with slow songs pre-selected by DJs. These tracks are printed on dance cards that you can use to sign up for slow dances with fellow attendees. With DJ Ben Nelson, DJ Deena, DJ LK, and DJ Haircut, its sure to be “a night to remember.” A true adult prom and re-do of hilarious middle school dances.

As always, designated dancers will be making the rounds, adorned with decorative sashes, making sure that there are no wallflowers. These people are approachable and utterly babely. They’ll help you get into the swing of the evening.

Photo booth on sight! This year its going to be impressive, too!

**** Members of a surprise Kingston supergroup will perform a few lovelorn hits for you to dance to midway through the evening! With a couple of songs by one of our favourite drag performers miss Lilith Cain thrown in for your health! *****

$10 admission for anyone who RSVPs in advance via Facebook, $12 otherwise night of at the door.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to suck!
