Good progress has been made towards this year’s Laughter Yoga Conference, themed as Inspiring Community. The dates are Saturday and Sunday, 12th and 13th September, 2015. The venue is Auckland’s Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre. Accompanying the event will be workshops and Laughter Yoga trainings.

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 a wide field of laughter related experiences. For more information go to the Events page.
