Tapping into the power of positive thinking

A WORKSHOP focusing on encouraging Brighton residents to think positively during difficult times was held at Pontville in May.  The ‘Positive Thinking in Negative Times’ workshop was sponsored through Brighton Council’s community grants program.

Twenty seven women participated in the workshop which was presented by Leiz Moore. It challenged participants to review the effects of stress and negativity in their lives and to keep life’s issues in perspective. Strategies for dealing with stress were discussed and the rules for being a human being as well as the ‘joy’ of stress were interesting concepts that the audience also considered.

Feedback from the workshop, which aimed to engage participants and to have some fun, was very positive and everyone said that the day was valuable to them in some way.

“We certainly had fun and got to network with some really interesting people,” said Rhea Ahlanu regional president of the Penguin Club. “We are really grateful to Brighton Council for its support for this workshop which has allowed local women to brush up on their positive thinking skills and be challenged to get more out of life.”

Group 15 Green Point will also be holding a one-hour workshop ‘I’ve Drawn A Blank’ on July 27 at 7.30pm.  This mini workshop will focus on getting your ideas together for making a presentation .  Women interested in attending this free workshop can contact Shirley 6263 6222 or Sandra 0408 124 440.
