Private living quarters with shared gardens, workshops, laundry, and other living spaces are all member-owned and planned. This is not a commune and not another condo complex. It was a Danish idea, and it may be an answer to the current concerns in this country about the economy, the climate, and the cost of oil. A handful of local residents are interested in building such a community and looking for like-minded visionaries to help bring it to life in this area.

Chirst Church Westerly to present the film "I AM"

Christ Church, 7 Elm St., Westerly, RI , 02891

The Peace and Justice Group at Christ Church Westerly are showing the film “I AM” on Sunday, March 18th at 4pm. The film explores what happened to filmmaker Tom Shadyac after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged a changed man. Disillusioned with life on the A-list, he sold his house, moved to a mobile home community, and decided to start life anew. Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a camera crew, Shadyac embarks upon a journey to discover how he as an individual, and we as a race, can improve the way we live. Appearing on-screen as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig, Shadyac meets with a variety of thinkers and doers--remarkable men and women from the worlds of science, philosophy, and faith.

BRANFORD-Shoreline Happiness Club March meeting

BRANFORD-Shoreline Happiness Club March meeting; Cedar Woods, 80 Cedar Street, Branford, CT , 06405

Why be happy? Why not? You will live longer, reduce anger, and have less stress. You'll have better focus, better patience, enhanced relationships and enjoy your life while enriching others with your happiness. Learn to use happiness to make a positive difference in your life and in the life of others! Happiness Club meetings will give you a rational, common sense approach to accept a positive view of life and deal with the things you cannot change. We'll have speakers at our monthly meetings who will guide you on your journey toward happiness.

Lionel Ketchian recognizes the importance of understanding happiness because he made the Happiness Decision 15 years ago. Now that he has reached the age of 60, he realizes that it is the best decision he has ever made. He wrote the "Happiness Formula" and has a "One Step Method for Happiness." He believes that happiness can change the world, one person at a time, starting with oneself. Founder of the Happiness Club, in Fairfield,Connecticut in 1999, Lionel hosts free monthly Happiness Club meetings to discuss the many benefits of happiness and their role in individual wellness.

Lionel will join us at our March meeting to share thoughts on how to "get happy" (I borrowed that from the Partridge Family)! For more info on Lionel see his website: http://happinessclub.com/index.html
