Jude took the group through warm up exercises, standing informally in the hall space like pretending to be a chicken. Slightly funny! Then onto specific laughter routines and interacting with fellow members, like using a hand as a mirror and showing that reflection to each other – greeting and speaking gibberish – by which time we were participating and getting fully involved. Absolute hysteria!
One member in particular became hysterical and could not stop laughing – a testament to Jude’s skill in providing opportunities for hearty, deep, spontaneous laughter. And the smiles – did you know you can’t really laugh without smiling, of a sort. So win win all round.
