On Tuesday, February 19 at 7pm, the Friends of the Dover Public Library will present an entertaining program led by Saundra Maisey, a Certified Laughter Leader with the World Laughter Tour. This organization promotes a worldwide movement for health, happiness and peace by encouraging everyone to tap into the positive benefits of laughter and humor.
Studies have shown that children laugh over 300 times a day, while adults manage an average of just 15 times daily. What happened? How did we lose our ability to laugh? Can we find that laughter again—true mirthful laughter? Absolutely, YES!!
Saundra’s program will help you find that inner laughter again. Attendees will partake in exercises that encourage playfulness and balance of mind, body and spirit. This may include gentle stretching and deep breathing, along with laughter exercises that combine laughing and physical movement. She will talk about the physical and psychological benefits of laughter then she will get the audience laughing to prove it. Give yourself permission to surrender your seriousness. This program is an invitation to breathe, laugh and play for your well-being. No experience required. You don’t have to tell jokes or be funny or flexible to join us!
Saundra Maisey has been a Certified Laughter leader since August 2005. Upon completion of her training, she established “Granite State Giggles!” and leads laughter workshops for libraries, businesses, and other organizations. She makes laughter a daily activity in her life and is a catalyst for laughter with family and friends. Saundra is not a humorist or comedian; she merely loves to laugh, and to share the benefits of laughter with others. Prior to becoming a CLL, Saundra was a public school music teacher, retailer, and system design developer for a Fortune 500 company for over thirty years.
Everyone is invited to attend this free presentation and have an enjoyable evening with us! For more information, call the Dover Public Library at 603-516-6050.
