We are already preparing for World Laughter Day in London with a fabulous Laughter Crawl and Flash Mob planned. We will be meeting in a Central London location and delivering smiles and laughter along the way with the message of World Peace to those we meet. We will be laughing on public transport, tube laughter 🙂 and visiting various locations in London.
Free to join us and open to everyone. We will be joined by members of our London Laughter Club, other Laughter Yogis and members of the public. All that is required is a willingness to join us in spreading Laughter, the message of Peace and Joy.
For a taste of what to expect, here’s what we got up to last year at one of our stops in Embankment Gardens. Fingers crossed for another sunny beautiful day this year. To join us please scroll down to registration link 🙂
World Laughter Day takes place on the first Sunday of May. This year it falls on 7th May. The first celebration was in India almost 20 years ago and was arranged by Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of Laughter Yoga.
Laughter Yoga says: Laughter is a positive and powerful emotion that has all the ingredients required for individuals to change themselves and to change the world in a peaceful and positive way.
Our mission to bring good health joy and world peace through laughter.
On this day the laughter club members and their friends and families get together in important squares public parks to laugh together and pray for world peace.
How Can We Bring World Peace Through Laughter?
Laughter is a universal language we all speak without any language barrier. Laughter Clubs are a powerful tool to connect people from different cultures and countries and provide social network of people who care for each other. By setting up laughter clubs all over the world we are creating a worldwide community of like-minded people who believe virtues like unconditional love and laughter generosity & forgiveness.
Formula is very simple -When you laugh; you change and when you change the world changes around you.
Laughter Yoga with our London Laughter Club for Red Nose Day
We had a fabulous laughter class with all proceeds donated to Red Nose Day. Following on from the laughter we headed to The Bread and Bean Cafe in Archway where the laughter continued over a cuppa.
In total Laughter Yoga Wellness raised £74 for comic relief. We were part of a team of Laughter Professionals who held Laughter Clubs and events throughout the UK with a Team Total of over £700 raised by Laughter Yogis for Red Nose Day. Special thanks to my laughter colleague Maggie who inspired us all to get involved.
Wow! such a super laughter club. We had oodles of fun and laughter. It just happened to fall on the same day as the World’s biggest eye contact experiment. Now of course I could not be in more than one place at the same time so we joined in at our laughter club in North London. Laughter connects people, it is an incredible social connector so it seemed perfect to add a minute of eye contact to the start of our workshop. Of course we paired up with people we did not know and our experiment was a little different with an added 20 seconds of laughter after the minute. Everyone seemed to enjoy the new exercise and some of our participants suggested we do it again and we will 🙂
So, what’s it all about ?
Encouraging more human connection by way of one minute of eye contact between strangers.
The annual experiment was created by Liberators International. The Liberators are the global organisers of the annual experiment. They are a peaceful international social movement founded in Perth, Australia and are passionate about creating participatory public demonstrations for peace and videos that allow us to see that beyond our differences there is love and humanity.
Why ? Where has the human connection gone ? You just need to sit on a bus or a tube, worse still at a restaurant with friends and see how many people have their necks bent, heads down focused on their phone or tablet. We are so not in the here and now and not connected with those around us. I would hope that those who took part have come away feeling encouraged to connect more with those around them.
On that note, I came across this super idea on my facebook feed the other day. So simple but so needed! We can all do this when we meet with family and friends. Let’s embrace the concept of being in the moment, being present and appreciating the wonderful people who are there with us in that moment.

Our session this week was also filmed by a proper camera man from our kind venue sponsors, The Kindness Offensive. They are making a film of different activities that are held at their bookshop. More info via http://thekindnessoffensive.com/ We are looking forward to see their film 🙂 TKO are creators of the worlds largest random acts of kindness and free giveaways, run by volunteers. I must add the short video above is my filming!!! Ha Ha.
We have just launched our new London Laughter and Socials allowing members of the public to experience regular laughter classes with optional socials after the class. Frequency varies but usually at least fortnightly.
Laughter workshops are ideal for social bonding, team building and so much more. We are on a mission to get London laughing and make it a happier and healthier place to live 🙂
