Science of Zen Laughter Meditation
What You’ll Get
When was the last time you had a real belly laugh?
Do you know that laughter is known to heal a number of diseases related to the nervous system and throat area?
When we are caught in too much thinking continuously, our energy is sucked by our mind and we stop living in reality! This is the problem with society where too much emphasis is focused on expectations and end results.
In this 2-hour workshop, you will learn about the science of laughter which is a Zen Buddhism tradition and the benefits of laughter meditation. You will experience the healing power of laughter as a catharsis and an instant relaxation at the physical, mental and spiritual levels. If you want to taste the juice of life, you need to go beyond your logic!

“Zen laughter meditation gave me an unusual laugh experience. It made me realize that I have suppressed something that I was not consciously knowing it. At the very beginning, I couldn’t laugh but cough. I felt thirsty and my shoulders were heavy. But all of a sudden, I stopped coughing and started laughing, non-stop laughing. I laughed and laughed but I felt I was not really happy inside. Then I knew there was still a part of me holding back and stopped me from expansion. I now have more clarity about myself and my current situation.” ~ Crystal (Hong Kong)
“Today it was my first time to try Zen Laughter Meditation guided by Ma Durga. Scientific background information was delivered and some small stories were shared. We were told that if we are too serious then we can’t laugh or vice versa. This is because we think too much in our minds.
Anyway I never thought that laughter could be difficult, but when we started the process I couldn’t laugh at all, even I didn’t have anything on my mind. People around me were laughing their heads off but I had nothing. Funny and weird feeling. Then my tears poured out and couldn’t stop crying. After the cry, I felt relieved and laughed a bit but I kept coughing and felt blocked in my body, yet I could feel vibration in my skin. I can say I feel good about it. The experience has brought me to open up more to life.
Thank you Ma Durga for bringing this to us! Hope I can really laugh next time 😁 Namaste 🙏🏻” ~ Jane (Hong Kong)
