I’ve just been listening to Dr David Van Nuys on the ShrinkRap Radio Psychology Podcast interviewing Dr Madan Katarian the originator of Laughter Yoga.
As always Dr Dave is a great interviewer and Dr Katarian is an engaging and giggling guest. Since he first developed Laughter Yoga groups in a park in Mumbai, the Laughter Yoga movement now has 6,000 groups world wide.
The interview covers the beginnings of the practice, how unconditional laughter benefits and a number of stories of how people have used laughter in a variety of situations (including a group of ‘laughers’ trapped in a building during the recent earthquake in Japan).

The interview and the interviewee are very engaging and I mention it because in the Autumn ChangeCamp on 29th October, Keith Adams of Voluntary Aspirations will be running the now traditional final wrap up session finishing a day of presentations at the event.
If you enjoyed the interview I heartily recommend the Shrink Rap Radio Podcast which has been going now for six years and has a huge back catalogue of interviews covering every possible aspect of psychology and personal development.
