Dave originally launched Manifest Positivity in Arcata, CA then relocated to Cardiff, CA and again to Atlanta, GA. At the start of 2017 he left the US on the #HelpTheWorldLaugh tour, which is taking him all over the world for an indefinite period. As a result, he is not currently scheduling office visits but continues to help clients via Skype (see below).

While traveling on the #HelpTheWorldLaugh tour Dave is still coaching clients via Skype. The connection is private and secure so you can see and hear each other for confidential long distance sessions. You can add and message Dave via Skype at manifest_positivity, but first please write him a note or use the Viber app to call his mobile number from anywhere in the world +1 707-845-3749.

Dave has been posting about the health benefits of unconditional laughter since attending his first laughter yoga class in 2009. He is known around the world for integrating unconditional laughter with hypnosis and coaching (aka Laughnosis), which lead to co-writing and publishing Laughter For the Health of It in 2015. Dave is a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher and can deliver Laughter Yoga Leader certification trainings anywhere in the world. Based on his commitment to inspiring people to adopt a daily laughter practice (see video below), Laughter Yoga founders Dr. Madan Kataria and Madhuri Kataria honored Dave in 2016 with the title Laughter Ambassador.

Dave provides private individual, couples, and group laughter coaching and Laughter Yoga sessions. He also brings laughter to hospitals, assisted living facilities, non-profits and corporations. Benefits include: a gentle cardio workout; reduced stress and better moods; strengthened immune systems; greater pain tolerance; improved communication skills, relationships, teamwork, and customer service; expanded emotional intelligence; increased creativity and receptivity to learning; and fostering a positive environment to reduce absenteeism and employee turnover. To schedule an event, please contact manifest_positivity on Skype, write Dave a note, or use the Viber app to call his mobile number from anywhere in the world +1 707-845-3749.

Clients working on certain issues benefit from having hypnosis recordings they can listen to repeatedly. Such recordings are often made during office visits at no extra charge. But for people who can’t get to see Dave in person, a custom hypnosis recording can be a great value. To discuss your needs, please contact manifest_positivity on Skype, write Dave a note, or use the Viber app to call his mobile number from anywhere in the world +1 707-845-3749.



“thank you so much for the pain management recording…we have been gone for 7 weeks across this country and I can honestly say I was never “in pain”…some discomfort on really busy busy days…but not the excruciating bone- on- bone pain I was having…I was even able to stand during the hours-long birthing of my granddaughter at the hospital so I could “see” everything!

a 7 week cross country trip with relatively little discomfort…

a blessing

a wonder

a miracle

a mazing!”
