IN PERSON: As you may have heard, stress relief from laughter is no joke! Fun, laughter and joyful group interactions have the biological effect of increasing endorphins, the neurotransmitters that help us cope with pain and stress. Participants will engage in group games, interactions and “hands-on” challenges that are designed to prompt cooperation, compromise, communication and laughter. Every meeting will be different from the last. Everyone is encouraged to participate in all the experiences, but participants can play the role of observer if they want a timeout. Some games may be familiar, but most are unique, creative situations designed to amuse participants and build friendships within the class. Sometimes we will be out of our seats and on our feet, so it’s a requirement that participants can walk unassisted. An additional requirement is a sense of humor. Although this course cannot promise a joyful, pain-free life, it can guarantee a good time. Let’s roll up our sleeves and go play. | Active Skill Learning.
