Deep Connection Through Laughter, Play and Meditation

  • Laneway Learning Central L3, Room 17, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston Street Melbourne 3000 Australia (map)

What’s it all about?

How connected are you – with yourself and others? Do you allow yourself to be openly seen, truly heard, and to be genuinely felt?

In this age of social media connectivity, is it possible that we are afraid of deeply connecting with ourselves and others?

As the holiday season approaches we will likely be spending more time with loved ones, so why not join us for a fun and meaningful class where we will explore the new, yet ancient, way of connecting through laughter, play and creative meditation.

This class is for everyone and anyone – couples, friends or curious souls. You will leave this class with a deeper sense of appreciation your yourself and for others.

What will we cover?

In this class, we will learn new ways to create deeper connections in our daily lives. We will combine laughter yoga, play, and creative meditation in one playful and purposeful session.

Laughter yoga is an aerobic exercise using voluntary and intentional laughing (without jokes) as process to clear stale air from our body making space for fresh oxygen. When practised in a group setting, laughter is a powerful way to break down barriers and create bonding among participants.

Through the process of playing, participants will learn and discover the deeper purposes embedded in play exercises, enabling them to relax, reflect and reconnect in a natural and creative way.

We will finish the class with a guided meditation, allowing for more clarity and deeper connections.

This class will synthesise wisdom from ancient Eastern philosophies (Chinese Taoism, Buddhism and Indian Yogi traditions) and new discoveries from Western Science (such as neuroplasticity). It will empower participants to establish a deeper relationship with the self so we can better connect with others.

Who will be teaching?

Elva Zhang is the founder of Peace Lab, which was created to provide a new way to cultivate well-being, a positive mindset and build stronger connections. Originally from China, Elva came to study in Australia as an international student after completing high school.

She is a lawyer by profession, who used to be SO serious! Peace Lab was therefore born out of her own experiences dealing with stress, anxiety and negative self-talk.
