April Alchemy from Yours Truly

Always seize the moment for joy and laughter when it presents itself!

April and more spring is here now and it is an exceptional time to blossom and enjoy every growth that goes on in us and around us.

A great time to look at who we are, who we are becoming and who we really deep down want to be in this life.

Fine tune or find your tune!

The growing seeds of liberation and acknowledgement of the change we have felt over the past many months are bursting to manifest themselves in myriads of ways, and we are just vessels for change to unfold on a bigger scale when we embrace our soul’s joyful breath, our laughter, and our journey.

On this path of kindness, joy and creation we form friendships and alliances that are essential to how we can grow with each other and sometimes grow apart.

So many things have happened this past year and many of these things are outside where I see myself and my work flowing, growing, sharing and caring, and perhaps you reflect just the same.

We all have an abundance of potential but it does not mean we all know how to access this potential in the ways we imagine, and often we are in too much of a hurry to fully notice what we have and who we are, so we miss out on seeing what we can do differently and missing out on seeing the bigger picture.

Sometimes the best choice is to break free and go a different way than those who went before or went along.

I love teaching Laughter Yoga on all the leves of teaching there are.

Along the way I always look to create lasting connections and to co-operate with likeminded people in order to have a greater impact in the world than that of one person.

Undoubtedly, I am blessed with friendships and colleague-ships that are outstanding and rich on so many levels. Thank you all.

It is also okay to say no. To say, this is where the journey, relationship, co-creation, partnership, etc. ends – but right now is not the time.

It is a new spring and a new time ahead. I am reaching out with arms open to welcome you into the world of Lott’o’Laughter, of sharing Laughter Yoga together for greater health, resourcefulness and co-creation.

As we join our wisdom and creativity we alchemise the change we all need so much, lifting the energy, light and spirit of us all.

In my mind this April Alchemy made sense, and if all else fails… I wish you a wonderful month of April!

Love, Laughter and Grace

Overcoming Overwhelm Virtual Online Forum by Radka Gimerova

Meeting Radka was a real honour. A mother, HR Professional, Transformational Coach, and Aroma Therapist with real inspiration and motivation to share for life and work.

Radka has organised a wonderful virtual online forum, Overcoming Overwhelm, and you are invited to register for free via the link, https://sparkyourbalance.com/event/.

Starting April 14th for 5 days, you will receive 2 experts interviews each day. All are designed to deliver not only the wisdom and tools to practice, but also a real experience for you to embrace.

A feeling of overwhelm can paralyse you in your movement at work or in life. Your ability to take action on even the tiniest things can feel undoable and you can easily feel trapped.

I feel privileged to be part of this super-charged panel of experts, and recommend the many facets that are being presented on how you can overcome feeling overwhelmed.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

Right Up My Podcast

The Right Up My Podcase with Gwen and Katie – and Laughter Yoga – is live!

It is the season for podcasts and I am excited to soon introduce the next one on, with Irene Moore on the Savvy Startup Podcast.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

On the panel of illumi

Laughter Yoga on www.illumi.live

Working together is definitely a theme for this month, the past months, and the months moving forward.

For that reason it was with great excitement and also a few great expectations I opened an email from one of the great event organisers in London, who had decided to launch their virtual events company and were looking to bring experts onboard for the events they would be promoting.

Here is who thery are:

“Hi, we’re illumi. “…and what is illumi?”, you may ask, quite reasonably. Simply put, we are the home of standout, content-led virtual experiences. Think of illumi as the lovechild of amazing content plus events expertise, with exciting emerging and under-represented talent as godparents.

Death by PowerPoint is over. Zoom is tired. All-hands emails are so last century. Webinars are on the wane. But virtual meetings and experiences are here to stay—and your audience deserves something stellar.

Enter illumi, stage-left. We take our extensive experience in events, digital, broadcast and technical delivery (award-winning experiential event agency WLLX is our parent company), and combine it with our bright ideas and sparkling content from our growing family of talented co-creators. The big finale is memorable and impactful virtual experiences that will have your audience craving more. Prepare for rave reviews.”

And they say a lot more, please visit them on https://www.illumi.live/ where there is more to be discovered.
