“In observing children we notice that they play with their problems.  They set up scenarios and, in a very creative way, they play with different possibilities.  In adult terms this kind of play is called creativity.  Einstein said, ‘I play with ideas’ – and he came up with some humdingers”. – Dr Annette Goodheart Ph.D

Laughter is a great thing – that’s why we’ve all heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.” There is strong evidence that laughter can actually improve health and help fight disease.

In this workshop, we’ll have some fun looking at laughter – what it is, what happens in our brains when we laugh, what makes us laugh and how it can make us healthier and happier, and how laughter encourages positive thinking and creativity.

All Change Campers – please join me for our traditional end of conference Laughter Yoga at 5pm.
