(all calls are recorded)
A transformative group teleclass program where you experience the power of laughter, find anxiety relief, heal your pain, let go of stress, and discover joy and inner peace — all in a supportive community .
……• Do you want to change your life?
……• Would you like more love, creativity and happiness?
……• Are you ready to re-ignite your passion for work and play?
If so, I personally invite you to discover the power, ease, and joy of Laughter Meditation
Laughter Meditation 101—a transformative 5-week experience—helps you find your center, your peace, and your authentic self. Each month we share laughter practices and lessons on releasing pain, finding anxiety relief and discovering joy. Experience a supportive community, and the sheer delight that laughter meditation techniques bring, enriching your life from the very first class and deepening in impact over the course of the program.
This radical new approach—called Expressive Meditation— dissolves anxiety and increases your ability to access the joy, happiness and peace that is your essential nature. Originating in ancient Eastern meditation traditions (including Hotei, the Laughing Buddha from 16th century Japan) Expressive Meditation Techniques help release mental, physical and emotional tensions from the body and mind. The Laughter Meditation program provides all well-known physical, emotional, and healing benefits of mediation yet it doesn’t require total silence, sitting in the lotus position, or breathing in special ways.
“The best meditation course I have ever taken“–Natalie Jones
What is Laughter Meditation, and why would I need a class to laugh?
- Laughter Meditation has two stages: in the first stage we laugh together for no reason. In the second stage we sit in silence together. The idea is to encourage and inspire you to deliberately bring more laughter into your life and to learn about the many benefits laughter has for body, mind, heart and soul.
- Studies have shown that laughter lowers stress (we all feel better after a good laugh, don’t we?), boosts the immune system, and can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It is even good for digestion. It is well-known that meditation techniques help reduce anxiety, and depression, allowing you to tap directly into your own source of natural well-being. Meditation also improves brain functioning, decision-making, and increases happiness.
- In Laughter Meditation 101 you can directly experience how much more balanced and energized you feel. Participants are supported and inspired to deepen their self-awareness and self-appreciation while discovering personal meaning and purpose.
How Laughter Meditation changed my life… and why I might be the right teacher for you
I owe a lot to Laughter Meditation. This is how I discovered that meditation can be fun. In my experience, the laughter practice is one of the easiest ways to get into meditation. Laughter Meditation healed my anxiety and fear and unleashed my joy, creativity, and innate happiness. All my relationships benefited from this new inner peace, as did my health and well-being.
Over time, as I wanted to share this profound personal transformation, my path led to my first book being published. This in turn led to teaching groups, giving presentations and realizing that so many people could benefit from this simple yet profound technique. My purpose became clearer and I am now dedicated to sharing this powerful method worldwide.
My goal is to inspire you to feel more vitality, be connected to like-minded and like-hearted people, and to know that there is hope. There are solutions to depression, anxiety, and pain. Laughter Meditation helped me transform my pain and fear into joy and inner peace. The same can happen for you.

Laughter meditation clears my mind and creates a space for complete peace, a beautiful silence that I have not been used to. I also get a rush of vitality that brings in all positives and eliminates all negatives. It helps heal pain and is extremely beneficial for my overall well-being.”
