NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.—On Thurs., March 1, Richard Mullen of Georgetown, a nationally recognized hypnotherapist and humorist, will present a program entitled “Laugh Yourself Silly” during an Avak luncheon at St. Gregory Armenian Apostolic Church, 158 Main St. in North Andover.
The luncheon will feature Armenian Lenten foods and desserts beginning at noon, followed by the presentation. Mullen has been a part of the natural health movement as a patient, student, practitioner, educator, and advocate. His talk is based on humor and laughter, and how it helps reduce stress, allowing participants to achieve optimum health.
“Stress is the foundation of most major health problems such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and diabetes,” he said. “Laughing and smiling stimulates the immune system, which helps to protect against disease.”
Mullen has presented workshops and programs throughout New England and Florida. The program is open to the public. An $8 donation will be collected at the door.
