So much hard new is hitting us every day. From border walls and government shutdowns to climate change and political nastiness. Yikes!
The stress aftermath does a number on our minds and our bodies.
It's easy to find ourselves:
Overdoing and getting burn out
Getting overwhelmed or depressed and tuning out
Wanting to do something but feeling paralyzed and unable to take action
Lightening Up about News Overload is not about makeing fun of truly bad things happening in the world.
It IS about:
Having a safe space to express and release tension
Finding healthy ways to transform stress
Learning to stary present and connected with yourself and others
Aiming towards living zestfully, regardless of what's going on
At this workshop we will learn to stop and take a breath. To move our bodies. To laugh with others. To explore living joyfully. To regain our ability to relax. To act flexibility, effectively and sustainably.
We'll use laughter, movement, play and mindfulness practices to move you from stressed out to feeling energized and empowered!
Join us to get your joy on with tools such as:
Laughter Yoga Deep breathing Intentional sharing InterPlay Healing Movement and more

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE LIGHTENING UP ABOUT GROWING OLDER WORKSHOP WITH ANNIE
Sharing my journey with other playful seekers who wish to add more meaning to life helped to expand my positive view of the aging process. Your program not only helped deepen my compassion for others, but has helped me to feel more compassion for myself. This is what I am continuing to practice in my life.

This was a brilliant idea for a workshop! I feel lighter not just about my own aging, but my parents as well. I always thought I didn’t have feelings about my own aging, but now I realize I do. What a relief to be honest with myself! Catherine Jolly
Annie did such a great job in dealing with a topic that is almost taboo in our society. It was liberating finding the humor in it and to laugh. Talking so openly about aging and growing older made me feel more understanding and compassionate towards others and myself. It helped me to see it more from the humorous side. Annie’s leadership style made me feel at ease at the very beginning. Her laughter and kindness were shining through.
Thank you Annie Goglia and Amos, for bringing your LIFEFIRE LAUGHTER all the way from Bay Area, just to give us a splendid morning of inner and outer joy of being as we "lightened up about aging". Great play/shop in Cindy Rivka Marshall's beautiful Needham studio.
This was indeed a joy-filled experience, remarkable considering the seriousness of issues around aging! Thank you Cindy for sharing your light-filled studio. Annie and Amos are outstanding guides through the thickets and gardens of aging. Many many thanks!
