“HO HO HA HA HA”: Giornata Mondiale della Risata / World Laughter Day 2010

World Laughter Day 2010 LOGO

Come ogni anno la prima domenica di maggio si rinnova la celebrazione della Giornata Mondiale della Risata. Ci si riunisce nei parchi e in altri spazi per ridere insieme a favore della Pace nel Mondo. Tutti possono organizzare un evento, anche in famiglia, per propagare risate e pace secondo la formula del Dr. Madan Kataria:

“Quando tu ridi tu cambi e quando tu cambi l'intero mondo cambia intorno a te

When you laugh, you change and when you change the whole world changes around you
(Dr. Madan Kataria)

The first World Laughter Day gathering took place in Mumbai, India, in 1998. Twelve thousand members from local and international laughter clubs joined together in a mega laughter session.

Why World Laughter Day

One of Dr. Kataria’s objectives for Laughter Yoga is to promote world peace through laughter. Some people find this idea fanciful, but an understanding of the science of emotions and emotional contagion in particular shows how this might be achieved. The practice of Laughter Yoga causes the body to release certain ‘Feel Good’ hormones into the bloodstream related to feelings of happiness, warmth, unconditional love, bonding, tolerance, forgiveness, generosity, and compassion. Let’s call this a joy cocktail. The presence of this ‘Joy Cocktail’ of hormones and neuro-peptides precludes the production of other hormones and neuro-peptides that correspond with hatred, fear, violence, jealousy, aggression and the emotions associated with war and oppression.
