Let's get together and
Laugh Together
explore the benefits and varieties of laughter

Monday, August 24,
Somerville Laughter Club at Unity
7pm - 8pm
(might run over)
90 Union Square,
Somerville, MA 02143
We are Family Friendly,
Laughter for Every Age.
Free

We are the only laughter club that teaches the mechanics of laughter
and we want that information available to everyone.

We will laugh over 12 different ways, using 12 different muscles groups. There is a laughter zone that allows us to be part of the experience.

Laughter leads us to a skill that will transform your life for the better. We will take a happiness break by learning how to feel happy sensations created by the body.

Mixing in Mind/Body awareness we will use interactive mindfulness to change our perceptions of ourselves as well as others. This is for all ages.

This laughter meeting will be video taped at the Somerville Community Access TV station.
