Introductory Laughter for Wellbeing and Healing.


Introductory Laughter for wellbeing and healing with Kathy Popplewell.

Have you ever heard that saying that "laughter is the best medicine"? But perhaps you feel like you've lost your laughter, that you have nothing to laugh about, that your sense of joy is missing, or simply that there are not enough opportunities to laugh or places that welcome your laughter?

Maybe you've been impacted and shaped by an environment or where laughter is not welcome or even shamed.

So how can you access your laughter now. Perhaps your laughter has become shy or scared, awkward and hiding. Maybe it even feels lost.

But. Can you remember times when you have laughed. An authentic, full body, spontaneous laugh? How does it feel? How does it make your body feel?

In this introductory session as well as exploring your stories and experiences around laughter you will be guided into exploring the different models of laughter and using the model of non humour, body based laughter using the teachings from Laughter Yoga you will learn how to cultivate more laughter into your every day life and how this aids to release and reduce stress, boost your wellbeing, enhance your health, make you feel connected and raise your vibration.

Join us for this informative, explorative, fun and relaxing introductory session to empower you with the understanding and some tools to welcome a little or a lot more laughter into your life for it's natural healing and health promoting capabilities.

"Thank you soooooo much for today, I felt so safe and was so inspired and can’t wait to start to reach out and reconnect with other goddesses . Today was spectacular! You held the most nurturing and creative space and I definitely felt like I was coming home- in style! What a beautiful bunch of women I got to meet today".
Diana ~ 'Coming Home' circle and dance journey ~ June, 2021)


"I have been to several of Kathy’s circles and recently joined her ‘Ancestral Woman’ event. She always chooses great themes that are so essential in the quest for wholeness and her sessions bring the personal and the universal seamlessly together. Kathy always sets up the space in a way that signals a transition away from the world outside to the realm of the sacred. My body senses it and readies itself for something special. What I most love about Kathy’s events is her presence itself. She has obviously lived through a lot, dug deep, held space for her self and genuinely reclaimed and connected with these archetypes and various states. That’s why she feels so uniquely qualified to hold space for others as she guides them into those same states and places. She leads very powerfully and each event feels like a celebration of the whole human being - for everything from the deepest pain to ecstatic joy, from dreams, to spirit animals, to our ancestral connections, to deep introspection and solidarity between us all.… Her dance journeys are my favourite part - her voice is so resonant, her words so evocative and her music perfect. The combination helps you access everything Kathy is guiding you towards - I feel able to dance into my pain, to fully inhabit various states, versions of myself, dreams, spirit animals, ancestors…there’s space for everything and then I eventually transcend myself to join the eternal. By the end, I always feel fuller, more whole and cosmically connected. I leave every circle with with a sense of support, of being backed by my whole self, by the other women I’ve moved with, by all the selves through the ages, by our ancestors. I feel welcome and celebrated."
Tess ~ 'Ancestral Woman' circle & dance journey ~ May 2021


"I have been to many of Kathy’s Women’s Circles and recently joined her Ancestral Women Circle and Dance Journey. As usual, it hit a beautiful target in me. I was feeling quite separate and unsociable when I arrived after a hard week, but listening to the other women share in circle drew so much compassion from me. Like always, I felt that as different as our details might be, we are all sharing the same one path. The same aches, pains and breakthroughs of waking up to who we are and healing our wounds and those of our ancestors. The barriers of judgment and criticism, my own ancestral wounds, melted and gave way to a feeling of unconditional love and softness. During the dance journey, Kathy guided us confidently from a space of nurturing our own individual ancestral hurts to an elaborate and beautiful artwork filled with the all the colours, qualities and strengths of our lineage. Then she drew us magically into a shared space where even the shyest and private among us were joined together in a feeling of courage, joyous sisterhood and mutual support. So freeing and fortifying at the same time. Thank you Kathy. I will continue to show up wherever you are holding Women’s Circles."
