Meet Lotte Mikkelsen of UnitedMind Laughter Yoga in London and the UK

This month we are introducing the Organiseer of The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018 branded as Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen.

This really IS our final introduction of the key people of The Playing Human Conference – meet Lotte Mikkelsen, Laughter Ambassador and Laughter Yoga Master Trainer in the UK!

She is the organiser of The Playing Human Conference this year and has been the driver of many Laughter Yoga Conferences in the past in the UK. She has also been instrumental in the development and spreading of Laughter Yoga in United Kingdom since 2003. Read more about her…

With a background spanning from mid-80s until 2010 (although part-time from 2001-2010) in national and international technology companies Lotte has had a closer encounter with the stress of worklife since she first started her IT career. Positions in technical support, sales, product management, top management and marketing took her on a journey through the fast-paced 90s technology sector with targets, sales, conventions, exhibitions and late budget and planning meetings.

Laughter Yoga was her answer to escaping the so-called rat-race.

When Lotte had her first experience of Laughter Yoga in Copenhagen at World Laughter Day (known as the HappyDemic with almost 10,000 people gathered) in January 2000 her decision was clear – this was her path to changing the world with a smile and a laugh. It was a way to become more light-hearted, playful and take life less seriously which had been her experience for many years.

‘My life didn’t change overnight but some good things take time and I am just happy that I did go for the dream and started laughing part time when I launched UnitedMind in 2002, and even better, full time in 2010 when I decided to quit the IT business. The best career move ever – for me.’

And it has certainly changed Lotte’s life from selling software and networking solutions to multi-million companies to sharing laughter with thousands of people in corporate and private groups.

Meet Jeremy Gilley of Peace One Day

This month we are introducing our final key-note speaker for The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018.

Last but not least in the line up presentation of second to none world class speakers, Jeremy Gilley of Peace One Day!

In 1998 Jeremy began to make the Peace One Day documentary, eventually deciding to aim for a UN resolution that would formalise the idea. This goal was reached in 2001 when United Nations unanimously adopted a General Assembly Resolution to establish 21 September as International Day of Peace!

The Peace One Day website writes: “Peace Day is an opportunity for UN agencies and NGOs to focus their ongoing life-saving activities within a global context. The impact of a day of global ceasefire and non-violence cannot be underestimated. Throughout the years, millions of people have been active on Peace Day in every country of the world, and hundreds of organisations have carried out life-saving activities in areas of conflict.”

Meet Pady O’Connor of MeeMee Theatre

Over the coming months we will be introducing our key-note speakers for The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018.

It is with great excitement that we welcome back Pady O’Connor – Clown Doctor and Artistic Director of MeeMee Theatre. Pady showed a few of his exciting methods last year in London and he is back to play with us!

Pady works his magic in North-East England as Clown Doctor, Dr Johan Cherrywolf, or Jonah to his mother, where he comes from a family of wrestlers called the Von Wolf’s. He was set to follow in his family’s footsteps, but Johan was walking one day, lost his footing and stumbled. He found himself hanging onto the edge of a cliff. Just as his grip started to loosen, and the end seemed inevitable, a small hairy leg and hoof lifted him to safety. Standing nearby was a deer – one crystal tear fell from its eye and it then vanished. That moment will stay with Johan forever, and he decided then to help in life in whatever way he could.

And that is just the introduction to Pady’s alter ego, Dr Johan Cherrywolf… there is MUCH more to his work and he will be sharing some of it with us.

Meet Robert Holden of Happiness Project

Over the coming months we will be introducing our key-note speakers for The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018.

In our January News we introduced Robert Holden, Founder of the Happiness Project and Success Intelligence – known as the leading happiness expert in the UK! Robert is a genuine and kindhearted man who lives what he teaches. It is a real privilege to connect with him and I hope you will take this opportunity and join us on 27-28 September when Robert will be opening The Playing Human Conference.

When I connected with Robert on Skype some months ago to discuss the conference and his idea for the content of his key-note presentation I connected with a charming, charismatic Brit who was oozing a playful attitude while still being serious about his work – and this was my experience from simply meeting him online. Robert is living happiness and what he will be sharing with us is a mystery to me, he will know at the time, and I for one am eversoexcited!

The Tea Meditation below is a bit longer than other videos I have presented with our key-note speakers but please take the time for this 20 minute talk on the Age of More and the Tea Meditation.

“One new perception, one fresh thought, one act of surrender, one change of heart, one leap of faith, can change your life forever.” Robert Holden, The Happiness Project and Success Intelligence

Meet Patch Adams, M.D., of Gesundheit Institute

Over the coming months we will be introducing our key-note speakers for The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018.

It is difficult not to fall in love with Patch Adams when he seriously proclaims, “I’m 72 years old with the maturity level of a 9-10 year old”. There is a warmth in his eyes when he connects with people in the room – connection that reached into your heart and touches your soul.

If you read our newsletter you may already have met Patch Adams, Founder of Gesundheit Clinic – if you haven’t yet read our November Laughter News the link is ready for you at the bottom of this post.

The Medical Doctor, who brought clowning to hospitals around the world through his persistent work to share, care, and love people instead of treat symptoms, is back in London at The Playing Human Conference!

Patch speaks from his heart with a passion and honesty that makes me want to be a better person than I am, makes me want to reach out even further to create positive change. We need people in our lives who make us go the extra mile, people who inspire and call upon greatness in us all.

In 2006 I had my first experience of Patch in Copenhagen and I was fortunate to be able to introduce him to a group of almost 100 Laughter Yoga Professionals in London in April 2017. However, for many it was too short notice to enable them to come to the event, so here is a second opportunity to meet and to learn from the REAL Patch Adams.

“Everyone has creative potential. Creativity involves using your imagination and inventiveness. Your unique expression of yourself is your creativity…Creativity can be magic when visiting people who are ill.” Patch Adams, MD, Founder of Gesundheit Institute

We are mirrors for each other that help each other love ourselves, be brave, be gentle, be light, be laughter! I want for pure love and soft lines to enfold us. And laughter brings that.” Linda Leclerc, HAHA Sisterhood Founder

“Without first establishing a deep sense of connection to yourself, to your soul’s purpose and to Spirit, everything else in life tends to feel shallow, unfulfilling, boring -like we secretly know we’re avoiding something vital. Our goal with LILA events is to help playfully reconnect you to that core vitality & to provide you with practices that help sustain that relationship.” Leif Hansen, LILA Founder
