The Centenary of Rotary in Australia

SAVE THE DATE!

Rotary’s Centenary is a time of celebration!  It Is a time to reflect on our past, and take pride in all that has been achieved.  It is a time we play our part in the history of Rotary.

Our centenary is also the time to lay the foundations for our future, as we still have much to do.  The key project in our centenary year will focus on stopping the one in 16 children who die in 9 Pacific nations before the age of five.

THE SHADOW KNOWS

“The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. 

"To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. 

"This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.” — Carl Jung,  (1951)

 

Who writes this stuff?  The Shadow Knows!

JEST FOR A LAUGH

Laughter just might be the most contagious of all emotional experiences. Although laughter is one of the distinguishing features of human beings, little is known about the mechanisms behind it. Laughter is not limited to communicating mirth. It can be triggered by embarrassment and other social discomforts.

Laughter may have evolved to facilitate bonding across large groups of people. In primates, the grooming process releases chemicals that help build social bonds; humans eventually came to live in groups that were larger than the grooming process allowed. Laughter, as well as speech, enables us to bond quickly and easily with a large community.

This week we feature some irony, sent to us by an anonymous donor in the House of Drury.
