As part of our Health and Wellbeing programme, the Monastery will be hosting a Laughter Club on the first Sunday of each month from 1:30-2:30pm on our Health & Wellbeing Day.

Organised by Robin Graham and Paul Dixon, the Laughter Club will feature activities that encourage laughter. This joyful laughter will create a sense of wellbeing and relaxation, provide gentle exercise and create a shared experience that leaves a good memory. Explore the meaning of laughter, its importance for good health and new ways to manage stress.

Robin Graham is a Laughter Consultant, Speaker and Trainer. He has been a laughter professional since 1998 – using laughter therapeutically and for fun – and is a Laughter Yoga Ambassador.

Paul Dixon is a Laughter Facilitator, writer, International Laughter Ambassador, certified Laughter Yoga Leader and a certified Laughter Yoga Teacher.
