Our Story

About ten years ago, a small group of friends recognized a need in their lives; to slow down and process their life experiences. Like many people, we often felt overwhelmed by urgent demands and found little space for reflection. We read books and watched films together, discovering that the arts can be an inspiring tool to help us reflect on our own stories. As things grew we began hosting events for others, built around shared encounters with the arts.

A key feature was simply bringing people together, so we decided to call this endeavour NEXUS.

On this site you will find short articles, inspired by encounters with books, films, music, poems and life events. Each article serves as a stimulus, either for a conversation with friends or an inner dialogue with your own thoughts. Some invite you to participate in a first-hand encounter with a specific artistic work.We hope you find this site a helpful resource. Our goal is to help create the space we all need for rich experiences, deep conversation and inner life reflection.

We are available to help you create your own local ‘NEXUS events’. Contact Us for more information.

Central Themes

Journey

To journey is to explore new horizons. As we reflect on where we are, where we’ve been and where we are going we make sense of life’s events.                                                                  

Space

Safe spaces are rare but vital for us to be authentic. When we feel safe we can share our lives vulnerably, without the need to advise, fix, or correct.

Story

Like a mirror, stories reflect our human experience. They help us to see what we haven’t seen before and to reimagine our own situations with new possibilities.

Beauty

We all need life-giving contact with beauty, not as an escape, but as an inner resource that injects hope. Beauty awakens us to the mystery of existence amidst the pain of life.

Listening

To listen is to be attentive to what lies beyond the surface; in ourselves, in others and in the world around us. We discover hidden contours of landscapes shimmering with significance.
