March Round-Up

Monthly Meeting

At our monthly meeting on Wednesday 16th March, we were treated to an informative talk about hypnotism by 18 year old Mike from www.mikehypno.com where he explained how our minds are like icebergs, with our brains only consciously processing about 10-20% that is above the waterline as opposed to the 80% going on beneath the surface.
Mike and our President, Alix
The talk was interspersed with audience participation exercises including the "Yes" exercise and the "Observation" exercise where you counted the number of ball passes, demonstrating the way your hands communicate so much about what you feel. It was interesting to see how a positively phrased suggestion can be very persuasive.

Members asked lots of insightful questions and came away hopefully with a better appreciation of what hypnosis and hypnotherapy can do. The event ended with a guided meditation.

For those of you who missed it, it was a great evening and in case you were wondering, no-one pretended to be a chicken...!

Becky and Laura have now taken over the role of Joint Treasurer, we at LWEWI are very, very grateful for them stepping up to take on this role.
Becky and Laura hypnotise each other into becoming Treasurer (possibly...)

Craft Club

At March craft club on Tuesday 1st March, Sue very patiently led us in crocheting granny squares - a first for some of us, a chance to practice for others.
