The Bunker Reading Group, Led by Ed Fornieles
Thursday 8 October, 7pm (GMT) meeting on Zoom – email gallery@carlosishikawa.com to register

"The bunker reading group will meet on Zoom during our time in quarantine to discuss a series of books which will cover a wide range of subjects that are of interest to its members. The emphasis in the group will be to interpret whatever text we are reading from a personal perspective, trying to make sense of how even abstract ideas or global events might relate to our pasts and day to day lives.

Anxiety and how emotions are made

'A swarm of rats is eating my soul'

This week we’ll be looking at how emotional states are read by our body and more specifically at anxiety, that nervous energy that so easily has the capacity to overwrite our thoughts, feelings and actions. It's an energy that is universal, that can often feel largely out of our control and which we have all found our own ways of coping with.

Anxiety can be an incredibly destructive force, clouding out thoughts, leading to bad decisions and compulsive and addictive behaviour. This week we’ll be talking about our personal experiences of anxiety, how it has effected us and how we might rethink it and change our experience of that well of nervous energy.

Circle Group: This week we’ll be trying a new configuration, spending more time focusing on participants' experiences of anxiety allowing the group to hear and respond to each person in turn."
