The International School of Laughter - Corinne Cosseron

created in France in 2002 by Corinne Cosseron




"RIGOLOGY" comes from the French word "RIGOLO" which means "funny" in childish language. Rigology is the science of joie de vivre, and studies show how laughter, joy, and positive feelings help us live a meaningful life, in good health, and with flourishing relationships. It is the brainchild of Corinne Cosseron, from Paris, France, who discovered, after having practiced Laughter Yoga, that laughter is a "joyful gateway" to all emotions. Corinne then created a daily exercise of "emotional cleansing" for the release of all emotions that allows one to truly connect with one’s innate joy.
Today, Rigology is practiced through the beautiful ten-step Circle of Joy ritual that gently leads all participants to their innate joie de vivre regardless of their initial state.
