Fully Alive: Insights with Elizabeth Oldfield

Date: July 12, 2024

Time: 7:00 pm

Location: Chedoke Estate, 1 Balfour Drive, Hamilton, L9C 7A5

In Person

Join us for an inspiring evening on July 12 at 7:00pm at the historic Chedoke Estate (1 Balfour Drive, Hamilton, L9C 7A5). Discover what it means to live life fully alive with popular podcaster, leadership coach, and former director of the Theos think tank in London, UK, Elizabeth Oldfield.

In this Cardus Conversation, Elizabeth will share insights from her new book, “Fully Alive: Tending to the Soul in Turbulent Times.” She explores how personal and cultural renewal may be found through a fresh reckoning with the seven deadly sins and a deeper engagement with the Christian faith as a source of wisdom during challenging times.

As a long-time supporter of the Cardus NextGEN program, she shares our commitment to equipping the next generation of Christian leaders in Canada. Joining Elizabeth on a panel we look forward to hearing from some of our recent NextGEN alumni as they share their experiences and insights on living as Christians in today’s world.

Elizabeth Oldfield is an experienced leader, speaker, writer, and podcast host with a passion for intelligent public engagement on issues of faith, identity, and healing our common life.

She appears regularly in the media, including BBC One, Sky News, the World Service, and writing in Prospect Magazine, UnHerd, and the Financial Times. She also hosts The Sacred, a podcast, events, and visual content brand that creates space for a wide range of guests to reflect on their deepest values. For ten years she was director of Theos, a Christian think tank in the UK, where she was repeatedly accredited by Best Companies as a 3* (world class) manager, reflecting her commitment to building and leading flourishing, high-performing teams. She spent the first part of her career working at the BBC in television and radio, contributing to programs including Beyond Belief and the Moral Maze, as well as Radio 3 and 4 documentaries. She is motivated by the dearth of real wisdom in public life, by a desire to increase empathy across our deep differences, and the way Christian spirituality can help individuals and societies flourish. She has a masters in theology and the arts and lives in an intentional community in south London.
