Positive Living Comes to Wincanton!

Liz Josey, The Positive Living Group NetworkStarting in January, Thursday nights in Wincanton will never be the same! Once a week Wincanton Memorial Hall will become host to Wincanton Positive Living Group. Each week a talk will be given by some of the most inspirational speakers in the field of alternative living followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to socialise with like-minded people.

As the saying goes, "horses for courses", the purpose of the group is to act as a neutral platform for a variety of alternative ideas and practices which may offer solutions to the challenges many of us face in this ever changing world we live in. The emphasis is very much on the health of the mind, body, spirit and planet and in essence it is the bringing together of people with possible answers with those who have questions. A Positive Living Group aims to support its community so wherever possible a local person is chosen to be the guest speaker.

The weekly meetings will be hosted by the Founder of The Positive Living Group Network, Liz Josey, who has recently moved to the area. It all begins on Thursday 12th January with a talk entitled 'How to be Happy!' which will be given by Professor of Psychology Patrick Jordan. Doors open at 7.30pm with the topic of the evening at 8.00pm followed by socialising and refreshments at 9.15pm (ish!). Admission is £5 and includes refreshments.

The group is non-denominational and open to all those interested in bringing about personal and spiritual growth and global harmony.

Come and join us for an evening of enlightenment!

Amazed at the enthusiasm and organising ability of Liz Josey who is new to Wincanton and has launched the Wincanton Positive Living Group with a programme of nine weekly talks, each with a rather different and interesting looking speaker on the general theme of health, spirituality and well being, I decided to turn up.

The result was a very pleasant and interesting evening. The speaker was Patrick Jordan Ph.D. who spoke on Positive Psychology and the new work which is being done to explore what thinking and behaviour helps people achieve happiness.

Boiling all this down to five principles (see his webite) he expanded on each and then opened the meeting up to questions. An excellent discussion followed.

The newly redecorated side room in the Memorial Hall also turned out to be a very pleasant venu and with refreshments included and a really friendly atmosphere the group got off to a very good start.

As Liz says it is a case of "horses for courses" so some will find some of the topics more to their taste than others, but the spread is certainly varied. So if you would like to explore different approaches to this very wide subject turn up on a Thursday to a talk that sounds interesting. I think you will find Liz has brought us a real breath of fresh air.
