Laughter may improve memory and quality of life. Victoria Laughter News March 9, 2016

Radio Daze


Your Humble Scribe will be on CFAX 1070 AM radio this Friday the 11th.


It will be the Ian Jessop program and at 2:30PM PDT.


I emailed Ian to thank him for all the good stuff he was covering that no one else seems to and reminded him of our mutual days in Victoria radio news in the 70s. He at CFAX, me at CKDA (now moved to the FM dial).


He asked me to come on and talk about “my work.” More like my play: The Zen of Joy book I wrote, my Laughter Yoga experiences and recent self development discoveries, I imagine.


They do archive the shows for a few days, so if you can’t listen on Friday, you can catch it later:



Talking of radio,


Laughter Yoga on the Radio.


An Australian radio station emailed me to come on live to do some Laughter Yoga with them. They thought I was living in Victoria in Australia.


So I passed it on to Merv Neal, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer in Oz. Here is Merv taking the radio crew through their Laughter Yoga paces. Scroll down till you get to Laughter Yoga.

About Victoria Laughter Yoga Club

Victoria Laughter Yoga Club is affiliated with Dr. Madan Kataria's School of Laughter Yoga. We laugh: Just ‘cause: ☺It feels good ☺Fights cancer* ☺Conquers stress ☺Improves circulation ☺Smooths out wrinkles ☺Is efficient exercise** ☺Slows the aging process ☺Boosts immunity(fight colds) ☺Oxygen to brain=clear thinking * Dr. Otto Warburg, President, Institute of Cell Physiology, Nobel Prize Winner (twice) says: “Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.” (My bolding) **Dr. W. Fry states that 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes or rowing or jogging.(Journal of General Psychology, 1938) Laughter Yoga goes beyond just laughter. Founder Dr. Madan Kataria has developed techniques to stimulate childlike playfulness, to adjust the aerobic and stretching component, and to promote emotional flow and release. Laughter Yoga can improve your physical health, release negative thoughts and emotions and get in touch with your spiritual nature. It helps us to develop an attitude of forgiveness, generosity, compassion and helpfulness while actively seeking the happiness of others. Combined, these principles can provide a powerful life-changing experience that we call the inner spirit of laughter. Laughter Yoga Clubs are non-political, non-religious, non-profit. There are a number of clubs in the Victoria area. Email for more info and current schedule:
