Pondero Talk – Power versus Fear: Defining the power within

8th November 2023

/ 1.5 hrs

Class Description

Pondero – Exercise your mind

 

Pondero Talks are designed to exercise your mind. Given by experts in each field, the talks are open and interactive, and cover a range of topics from Psychology to Engineering, all designed to keep minds active.
The set of talks created for Honesty Cookery School can be booked on the Pondero website through the link below.

 

Feelings are an essential part of our being and life.  Understanding them and using them to our advantage is an empowering life skill.  In emotional management we talk about eight primary feelings, these are the essential basics for our emotional expression. Powerful and Fear are two of these feelings,  I would like to explore the contrast of these two feelings in the talk “Power versus Fear:  Defining the power within”.

 

Once we can explore the varying intensities of these two feelings, we can see how to gain the understanding needed to live in a more empowered way.

FAQs

What is a Cook Together ticket?

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.

Can I book for a large group?

We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.

Who can attend these classes?

Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.

It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

Do I need to be a confident cook?

We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.

What if I have a food allergy or special dietary need?

Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

What should I wear/bring with me?

All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.

If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.

We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
