Altadena Public Library Presents “It’s Worth Laughing!” with Sebastien Gendry

Everybody knows that laughing feels good, but did you know that, used well, it can have far-reaching positive impacts on the body, mind and spirit? Come learn essential laughter tools and techniques to improve your health and overall wellbeing at the Altadena Library on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., with an international expert in the field.

“Laughter can’t heal or solve anything, but it can help to heal and dissolve everything” says Sebastien Gendry, the creator of Laughter Wellness, an interactive practice focused on developing a positive attitude and designed to improve physical, mental, emotional and especially social wellbeing and integration.

“It’s like a bumblebee. Aerodynamically, bees shouldn’t be able to fly, but they do. Likewise, who would have thought that something so easy and simple as laughing could have such far reaching positive impacts on our body, mind and spirit? And yet it does.”

Laughter Wellness is a new technology that offers a reliable, multidisciplinary, and holistic approach to health care throughout people’s lifespan. It is easy to learn and implement, and requires no particular space, equipment or form of clothing.

This presentation is free and open to all. Come learn more and get a healthy D.O.S.E. of happiness (Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, Endorphins)!

Sebastien Gendry is an international expert in wellness and wellbeing with over 11 years of full-time experience teaching and training 1,000s of people on four continents. He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 minutes, ABC Good Morning America, and many more national media.
