Why We Laugh

We call ourselves a Laughter Club because we laugh a lot, but that’s really a misnomer because what motivates us to meet week after week, year after year, is the wellness and wellbeing laughter helps us to achieve in body, mind and spirit. We do not use jokes or comedy and follow the Laughter Wellness method of intentional laughter exercises.
