Then October arrived!
With fog followed by sunshine and warmth of the proceeding autumn.
There is change in the air and not only the seasonal ones that happen every year. You feel it in your soul, the change that is bound to happen when the energetic shifts start aligning with your purpose and vice versa. There is a busy-ness and an urgency surrounding us all , everyone getting ready for winter, for final fiscal quarter, for seasonal celebrations, for storing, for optimistic October.
I feel the change in energy and in the world around me, the world surrounding us all, change is progressing faster and faster – change in our lives, energy and in the world.
The other day I was contemplating leaving the UK when I read that the new government has dismissed or bypassed or passed new laws and decrees that counteracts those from only a few years ago which protect our environments and natural world. I was wondering how I could continue to live in a country where nature is disregarded and money paves the way for those who are rich and still become richer when others struggle to see how they can heat their homes and feed their familes in the time to come.
That was my honest thought in that moment, I was saddened and I felt a bit lost for a moment or two.
And this is why I rarely read the news! I get too dramatic about it all ho ho ha ha ha…
The next moment a video popped onto my LinkedIn Feed which told the story of a man in India, Jadav Payeng, who planted a forest on barren land to save his island, to save his home, and I thought how selfish of me to even consider giving up when I don’t even know much about politics and I love my home and my people.
You do not abandon your home and your loved ones just because we disagree…
And I do know about transformation and making a commitment to change, and I am not giving up just because someone puts a temporary spanner in the wheel of spiritual progress and growth for human kind and our Earth!
We can all do that and it really takes just a tiny little step even when it seems disappearingly small and seems to matter very little in the bigger scheme of things. When we commit and make the decition the universe starts workng in our favour. It may not be in our lifetime but then it will be in the lifetime of our decendants when they still breathe fresh air and drink water from the tap, rest under giant oak trees, and run in the wilderness building hide-outs and tree-houses.
Besides, we will see the little sprouts of our efforts in the spirit of love and compassion for our Earth and all things living.
We all share the responsibility!
Practicing Laughter Yoga does not change us all but it is a transformational tool for the self to open heart and mind to making a difference, locally and globally.
We can individually move mole-hills, and when we join efforts and determination mountains are shaking and moving!
That sounded like a speech of some sort but I promise you it is just a reflection and my own view of life and allsorts.
We grow in unison and love!
With Love, Friendship, Honesty, Kindness, Health, Hope, Goodness, Grace, Gratitude, Understanding, Faith, Peace, Forgiveness, Patience, Diligence, Love, Blessings and Joy
Laughter Yoga Expert and Master Trainer
Many Laughter Yoga Teachers say it is easy to start a career in Laughter Yoga when you complete the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training.
If your teacher or the marketing material you read says it is easy, ask again, and ask again and again and again.
If you have great support and you yourself continue to communicate with your teacher and mentors, if you start a laughter club to learn and to build confidence in the Laughter Yoga work, then it may be easier than being on your own with all your thoughts and ideas.
A Laughter Yoga career takes discipline and focus, determination and continued learning, as well as a good network of people in and more importantly outside the Laughter Yoga community.
Wanting to earn from delivering workshops is what many people are dreaming of when venturing into Laughter Yoga but often it becomes easy to stop yourself and to doubt your skills and abilities.
One of the very valid reasons I recommend the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training!
The Laughter Yoga Teacher Training takes you on an in-depth journey to yourself and it addresses many of the thoughts you may have about your Laughter Yoga business.
There is not an easy way but I guarantee you that it is rewarding for you and everyone you touch with your Laughter Yoga being when you put yourself and your commitment into it.
Laughter Yoga is about transformation of us and providing a platform for transformation that is easy for others to tap into if they do choose this option.
Just a repeat of the teacher training information from September to remind you of what’s in it for you. During the training we will go in-depth with some of the elements introduced in Laughter Yoga 2.0 as well as
- Experience and learn in-depth about the benefits of having a daily Laughter Yoga practice
- Understand the extended Laughter Yoga 2.0
- Practice and present Laughter Yoga smoothly
- Discuss the different application of Laughter Yoga in various settings
- Learn and practice a minimum of 40 laughter exercises you can use for any purpose
- Find out how to start your own laughter business
- Learn the basics skills as a Laughter Yoga Teacher
- Discover what it takes to excel as a Laughter Yoga Professional
- Learn the practice of laughter and breathing techniques for your own benefits and by yourself
- Review and discuss media coverage from around the world
- Explore the creative side to working with Laughter Yoga in a team and as a team
- Enjoy the talent evening’s Talent Show Play and have lots of fun
- Start your vision planning that will take you into your future with Laughter Yoga
And then there are all the things you learn which are not on the curriculum but the human side of the training. Tolerance, kindness, friendship, non-judgment, compassion, aha-moments, and much more on your personal and spiritual journey.
There are courses in October-November and in July each year, and I recommend booking one.

Second to None Benefits Part 9
People experience a greater sense of self-worth which comes with letting go of inhibitions.
Inhibitions are often self-limiting beliefs based on other people’s opinions, environment, upbringing, etc. They so not do us any favour except put doubt in our minds.
When we share laughter with an open mind and a willingness to participate we allow ourselves to become self-expressed where there may not have been a self-expressed self before.
We grow up constantly hearing and learning things, and sometimes those lessons stem from our parents’, teachers’, mentors’ and other peoples own hang-ups and things they themselves have heard in the past perhaps even while growing up.
“This will end in tears”, “it wasn’t that funny”, “you laugh so loud/weird/strange/cackling”, “children must be seen not heard”, “don’t draw attention to yourself”, and many other sentences that keep circulating even in our present day and age.
Many times we feel ourselves locked in patterns and behaviour we adopted as young people, stuck and wondering how to unlock the set ways.
Laughter Yoga provides an opportunity for releasing these set behaviours and become the self-expressed person we all are somewhere deep inside.
Being self-expressed is not equivalent to being rude and offending people, it simply means that we honour our own creative voice of expression in an honest, kind, compassionate way without ‘beating around the bush’.
It is equally important to say that practicing Laughter Yoga daily is not the same as always laughing loudly and speaking over everyone, on the contrary, practicing Laughter Yoga is a mindful practice full of respect and consideration.
I hope you will continue to enjoy reading about the benefits of practicing Laughter Yoga, and even consider learning the technique for yourself or your group of people in your community or workplace so you, too, can make positive, live-able change count.

Laughter Training for the Leader You are in Your Life
You do not need to have a wish to teach others when you become a Laughter Yoga Teacher, however, you will learn skills that will enable to you to share Laughter Yoga on a much deeper level and of course, you will have the option to teach your own network of Laughter Yoga Leader if you ever change your mind.
If you have felt inspired to do the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training OR if you felt inspired to complete the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training when you first trained as a Laughter Yoga Leader this is a call to you to take inspired action!
The journey to become a leader or a teacher who people want to learn from starts when you have the passion for your work and do it the best you can at all times.
Too many times in life we stall and never move forward in that touching, moving, and inspiring moment. I have been there many times in the past but since choosing Laughter Yoga as a life line for me and for the world I take action every day.
