Cafe Psychologique – Wellbeing: Myth or Real Possiblity?

24th October - 8:00 pm

Introduced by Joshua Malkin,from Network of Wellbeing
Hosted by Jacinta Kent

Wellbeing clearly means very different things to different people: health, comfort, contentment, or even possessions or material wealth. However, it’s clear that newspapers, magazines and endless tv programmes think it’s what we need. Whether it’s bonkers celebrity diets, unfeasibly flexible lycra-clad poses, or an unnervingly superior method to switch off from the worries that assail mere mortals, it can feel like everyone has wellbeing to sell but hardly anyone seems to be able to explain what it is, and how it is genuinely attained.

So finding a translation of the vague aspirations into something tangible can be difficult, and even if that is found it often still seems completely out of reach from within the realities of busy lives, demanding work, and good intentions that stubbornly refuse to transfer into actual change.

This café will explore the nature of wellbeing and whether it is just a myth used to sell products, or actually something realistically achieveable.

The café will be introduced by Joshua Paul Malkin, who helped establish the Network of Wellbeing – a charity that promotes individual wellbeing along with community, societal and environmetal wellbeing. He grew up in Leeds, is a co-convenor of the Civil Society Forum in London and a partner in a Holistic Science consultancy called Transformation Strategies.

Chat and think over a drink. Café Psychologique builds on the idea of the Café Scientifique movement and other Café such as Café Philosophique.
