The first meeting was held on Thursday, September 4, 2008 and was a great success. The room was filled with laughter and great discussions on ways to be in happiness. We started with looking at 'Choosing to be happy' - making the choice every day to be happy - I spoke about the why, how are where of happiness clubs. I talked about gratitude and took us though a fun game to show how we often say something but do something different.

Our speaker, Lisa Heath talked about broadening our perceptive on happiness and enjoying the ride wherever that takes us. We learn some simple physical techniques for stress busting. Lisa ended on these simple ideas. # Challenge any negative thoughts - (are they infact true) # Be grateful # seek out meaning # work to my strengths # connect with people and # move your body.

Tasmania is a small island to the south of Australia just across the water from Melbourne.
The first Happiness Club meeting here in Tasmania, Australia will be on the 18th March, 2009. It will be held at the Kings Meadows Community Health Center, McHugh Street, Kings Meadows on the 18th March. I have yet to set the agenda for this meeting. 
I am married with 2 grown sons. I used to be a clown and did laughter therapy workshops for some years here in my local area. They were great fun but I eventually let them go but I have always had a passion to find happiness for myself and for others. I learned happiness a little later in my life and I really want to share what I have learned with others so they can live their live in a much more meaningful way. I am trained as a spiritual coach specializing in the law of attraction, and am just setting up my practice in this area but I feel drawn to make my practice more around happiness than anything else. In the past I thank you so much for your friendship. Warm regards, Susan Hinds 

I have downloaded the book on your website and I am very grateful indeed for that. I felt straight away that this is something that I would really enjoy doing and I know that Tasmania needs it so much. I would also like to be involved in the online happiness club and I am so happy that I have access to so much material. 
I will listen with interest the recording you have on your site when you interview Dr. Tim Sharp and I intend to attend a workshop that he is having in Melbourne. I will be very excited to have contact with him and having access to his wisdom.

I have subscribed to your newsletter and I thank you so much for your wonderful site and I am so excited to learn more and help others. I look forward to meeting with you someday as I really love to travel and I would love to attend either a happiness club or something else that you are involved in.
Warm regards, Susan Hinds

On August 26th, the Thames New Zealand Happiness Club met for the first time from 12:00 to 1:00 PM and it went so well! There were 13 very enthusiastic people who saw the ad in the local paper and the flyers I placed on various notice boards. I must admit to being a little unsure of what to expect – however, as always, things went smoothly. Everyone shared their reasons for being there. I told them about how Lionel started this club and that Pat Armitstead created our first Happiness Club in New Zealand.

Our Happiness Homework for the next meeting is:
1. Recalling this beautiful affirmation: LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED.
2. Nightly writing of 5 wonderful statements of Gratitude in your GRATITUDE DIARY to bring along at our next meeting.
