Plans are under way for this year’s Laughter Yoga Conference, themed as Inspiring Community. The dates chosen are Saturday and Sunday, 12th and 13th September, 2015. The proposed venue is at Auckland’s Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre, which looks to have all the facilities we need at an affordable price.

Please make a place for this in your diary as you will want to be there. It promises to be the most fun event in the laughter calendar this year. The list of presenters is looking excellent, covering the wide field of laughter related experiences. More details will follow as they come to hand.
