Winfield Artists Programs
Letting Go With Laughter
Let Winfield Artists tailor a series of mindfulness sessions for your school or company. Grant Cooper has over twenty years of experience making audiences laugh, and we combine his comic talent with mediation and guided relaxation by Dr. Swindall. This two-fold stress relief practice creates unique moments of zen that rejuvenate the mind and body.
Dr. Swindall has been practicing meditation for over twenty years, and has integrated mindfulness activities into her college classes. She also leads bi-weekly guided relaxation and meditation sessions at Stevens Institute, the university where she teaches. Her sessions have reached hundreds of students and staff.
The benefits of meditation are being well documented by scientists. Winfield Artists believes that laughter also has healing qualities, and we would love to bring laughter and positive energy to your group!
