Newcastle Happy Cafe - March 20th
Time & Location
About the event
We meet the third Saturday of each month to share, laugh and learn.
It's not candles and sandles, it's not toxic positivity - it is a lovely community of happiness seekers and spreaders who are and support each other. All humans with all their emotions are welcome.
"Happiness is not the belief that everything is great, happiness is the belief that change is possible. Happiness is defined as the joy you feel striving towards fulfilling your potential."
These are currently online but normally held at The Journey Cafe in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Hear from one of our regular attendees (and lovely friend), Helen Simmons:
"Inspiration North is a fantastic place to start if you want to become more productive and fulfilled through better self-awareness and positivity. Run by James Eves and Michelle Minikin I came across their organisation through the Happy Cafes which they run as volunteers for the Action for Happiness charity. I joined the Newcastle Happy Cafe just as March 2020 lockdown started and they had moved online. Over the year, they’ve become an important punctation in my calendar, giving me a safe space to share my feelings, discuss ways to find my own happiness and support others in finding theirs.
James and Michelle bring a different topic to each session and as a group we develop our positivity toolkit. My cheeks always ache at the end of the hour from a continuous beaming smile on my face. I believe that one way to thrive in this different world is to create new fulfilling rituals instead of mourning those we have lost, and Happy Cafes (and the Ten Keys Sessions which they also run on a similar theme) have become uplifting sessions I look forward to. I feel like I live off the energy of these gatherings for days afterwards and our WhatsApp group keeps us connected and motivating each other between meetings."
