Laughter is a simple and pure form of connection; easily experienced in physical form. I have learned that laughter, and its ability to connect us in the middle of our utter vulnerability, can lead to the feelings of inner joy that most of us are seeking. Laughter is a fun and easy way to meet another’s gaze and dissolve the illusion of our separateness.

My intention with this gathering is that you will experience the many benefits of laughter for the body and mind, the heart and soul; to encourage and inspire you to choose laughter in your life more often. I believe that laughter is a tool for understanding the human condition and ultimately healing through connection.

Laughter Meditation has two stages: first, we laugh together for no reason. Laughter opens the heart to allow more love, more trust and more connection. In the second stage, we share silence. Laughter serves as a bridge to intensify, taking us deeper into our silence, our inner peace and calm.

Please join us for fun and fellowship! There is a suggested love donation, but no one will be turned away. Please RSVP as space in my basement laughter sanctuary is limited. Also, please note that my home, unfortunately, is not wheelchair accessible.

The house is accessible by Tri-met, either the 75 bus or the new Orange Lightrail. The new Orange line stop nearby at Sellwood and Johnson Creek and the 75 Bus stops nearby on SE 32nd. The bus is less of a walk. I created a little map here, but it doesn't show everything. At the new MAX stop there is a trail heading south between the Pendleton Woolen Mills store and the tracks. It heads up a little hill to the Springwater Trail. Then you can follow the outlined map via the trail and the neighborhood streets (~ 15 min. walk). For the bus I have the long way round on the map (still not long ~ 5 min.), but on the corner of SE 32nd & Roswell there is a large field that you can cut through to get to Barba St. Hope this helps!!
