A message from Jon Lubeck ’14:
Come to a laughter yoga “playshop” on Monday the 9th at 6PM in the Buddhist House Meditation room. The “playshop” will be led by local laughter yoga teacher Mylene Poitras. It should last only about an hour.
Laughter yoga is a practice that combines laughter exercises with controlled breathing and calming movements. It produces endorphins that counter-stress and help bring about relaxation. It’s fun and should be a great way to help us forget about final stress.
Date: Today, December 9, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place: Buddhist House Meditation room

The soulful Greg Shaheen ’13 hollers at y’all:
This Friday at BuHo, sink into the deep grove and infectious melodies of two jazz-influenced soul/R&B/funk bands that are turning heads and moving bodies wherever they play.
Mad Satta is truly fun to listen to – music for the right reasons. Led by the terrific and powerful voice of Joanna Teters, this is a group that will be an important component of the movement to keep this music moving forward… – Taylor Eigsti -Pianist(2x GRAMMY nominee)
Mad Satta and Skybars are two bands full of unstoppable musicians who make me and everyone around me feel so goooood…
