is a Laughter Club?
A Laughter Club is a place where you will
laugh like you have never laughed before, leaving you refreshed and invigorated.
You will do this for no reason at all, except the desire to improve your health
Laughter Clubs are fully independent, not-for-profit, community based associations
of people where all are welcome. Laughter Clubs meet on a regular basis, are non-religious,
non-political, non-competitive, and laughing with others is a great way to build
bridges and promote peace in the community. Become a Laughter
Leader and start a social laughter club in your community!

A Laughter session consists of a series
of simple and gentle exercises. While a lot of creative input is left to the person
leading the session, all laughter clubs follow the same basic structure:
We chant, clap and create rhythm.
2. We breathe deeply.
3. We simulate laughter through simple exercises and gestures.
