Nicholson Lecture – Really useful advice for life

20 May 2022

Sharda Sq

Mrs Dean gave a Nicholson Lecture entitled ‘Really Useful Advice for Life’ including words of wisdom she has collected over the years from friends, family and various self-help books.

The guidance offered had two key elements: the acceptance of negative emotions and events beyond our control, a philosophy rooted in Buddhism, and a more Western tradition that embraces the full extent of our capacity to change the things we can, even if that sometimes feels impossible.
