Fridays, noon 'til 2PM, Heart's Desire Meditation/Tapping
This is an opportunity to experience some peace and perspective in the middle of your Friday in a safe and sacred space.  Facilitated by Sarah Daniels, this approach to meditation explores how, if we can relax into Soul and Spirit for a brief time in the middle of your Friday, the experience will help clarify our inner guidance.  As our inner guidance becomes more clear, we can more easily come into alignment with it and find our lives manifesting our heart's desire.  Tapping affirmations follow.  There is no charge for this activity.  Donations are, of course, welcomed.

Laughter Yoga is good for ya! 
It's just what the doctor ordered.

The Madison Laughter Club presents their Laughter Yoga Workshop every Sunday  from 2:30-3:30PM at the CCL.  So, just what is
 Laughter Yoga?  It's a group activated, consciously
 generated laughing experience.  But it's no laughing
 matter.  Scientific research has documented the benefits of
 laughter.  It increases oxygen to the brain, reduces stress, enhances immune function (not to be sneezed at), and raises endorphin and neurotransmitter levels.  Once you've tried it you'll be wondering why you haven't been doing  this your whole life.  Your free will donations are welcomed and go to help support all the Center's activities.
