Joyworks: Celebrating Mothers and Mother Earth
This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to honor the mothers in our lives, and show our appreciation for the planet that sustains us all. Let’s come together in laughter and joy as we celebrate the amazing women who have brought us into the world, the mothers in disguise in our lives, how we mother ourselves and the incredible planet that gives us life.
Thank you Diana for another grand theme.

What If I Don’t Feel Like Laughter?
Have you heard the phrase “laughter is contagious”? Well, it’s true. At the start of a workshop, you might not feel like laughing. That’s why we begin by using a proven uplifting concoction of games and laughter yoga. Eventually, alongside everyone else, you find yourself actually laughing naturally and contagiously and leave feeling good about the world and its people. The good news is your body and mind can’t even tell the difference between real and pretend laughter. So even if you pretend at first you’ll still receive all the benefits and it always overflows into hearty and contagious belly laughs. Remember how good that feels?
