Great ideas need to be shared. This is the simple thought behind the DO Lectures, a tiny event taking place inside a cosy tent in Wales, founded by David and Clare Hieatt. Every year they organise a weekend in the name of great ideas that deserve to be spread. A weekend full of talks and workshops, live-music and people from all sorts of different backgrounds, who found what we all seem to be looking for: Their true purpose in life.

“The aim is to spread the knowledge as much and as far as possible. My feeling is that knowledge needs to be shared. Ideas need oxygen. Good ideas spread quickly. Great ideas spread even faster. I believe in ideas.“, says Co-Founder David Hieatt, promising a “remarkable weekend” for the next Do Lectures from April 25 – 29.

To show you why I fell in love with this project, I’d like to introduce you to Maggie Doyne. With only 24 years of age this amazing young woman found her slice of heaven a few years ago on a gap year she spent travelling, starting to run an orphanage and a school for 230 children in Nepal. Listening to her inspiring story makes you remember that life isn’t just about you.

How can I be a part of this, you might ask yourself now.  Well, it is a small event, which is why the attendees are as important as the speakers. A ticket costs 1,500 British pounds and you can apply for it here.

… Or you can simply wait for all the inspiring speakers to appear on the Do Lectures website. Either way, the stories of those who Do will “ light a fire in your belly to go and Do your thing, your passion, the thing that sits in the back of your head each day, just waiting, and waiting for you to follow your heart.”
