Our mindfulness series is back by popular demand in 2011 and will include a number of classes, workshops, and lectures that will help you empower your mind and body to improve your health.

“Laugh because that is the purest sound.” ~Hafiz

Create unity, healing energy and joy with a chuckle. Be prepared for a hilariously uplifting experience. Mindfulness, deep breathing, seated guided Laughter and a Loving Kindness offering join forces to heal the body, clear the mind, soothe the soul and electrify your life.  We’ll begin with a brief history of Laughter for wellness and let you know why the old phrase “Laughter is the best medicine.” rings true on many levels.  No meditation experience needed – simply come with an openess to fun and feeling great!
