And just to mention

UnitedMind – the teenage years!

UnitedMind has been trading for more than a decade in a rather unique training space. It is a true blessing to be able to share laughter and ways to learn methods of improving health and happiness levels – both in your communities, workplace and at home.

There is still a long way to go to create a household brand but by teaching teachers and leaders, therapists and coaches to facilitate change through laugther we spread the awareness of these wonderful means to living life fully and extraordinarily.

Reflecting on 2015 I realised that the 13th year of this evolving business has been similar to the first teenage year of any young person’s life, there have been grumbles to acknowledge, challenges out of this world, internal and at times external fights to embrace, peace to create and maintain, understanding at a different level, but first and foremost there have been people involved.

And along with people comes compassion, love, and understanding, contrubution, sharing, and caring.

The past few months have been a busy season with focus on family and festive activities, for some not so festive perhaps, but for all of us I am sure a bit of laughter can be a great help to get through any stress and chibang.

Accessing the laughter can be the challenge, though.

Beatles knew about Hearty Laughter…

You can give yourself a beautiful gift by learning laughter for no reason.

Either of the certified courses are created and delivered with getting laughter for yourself and whether you choose to share it with others or create a new business venture, change the lives of thousands of people, or just make the difference for yourself knowing that this will impact those you reach out to – that is the true beauty of the Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy courses. Below is a re-cap on the certified laughter course dates.

Reclaim You Face!

Introducing a brand new laughter workshop!

The workshop runs first time at Alington House in Durham on Saturday 16 January 2016 from 10am to 3pm.

Get rid of the fixed expression created by seriousness and get your laughter lines firmly ground into your face.

January is often a month full of seriousness following the jolly season’s extravaganza.

Join us at this workshop where you will experience your face in different folds.

£35 per person including refreshments. Book online on Reclaim Your Face Laughter Workshop. This workshop can also be booked for your group, team, workplace – get in touch to find out more.

Certified Laughter Therapy Training

The Laughter Therapist Training takes you on a journey through different ways of presentation, various ways of using laughter in life and in workshops, the meaning of laughter that we add, and it teaches you to structure a professional presentation.

The course is a philosophical as well as practical course where we will get in touch with the inner-most laughter, and discover what REALLY tickles the giggles.

During the training you will be encouraged to initiate a project within your community, or a health care facility, in order to complete an essay that completes the full certification.

At the end of the training you will receive a certificate that enables you to obtain insurance to practice and facilitate laughter workshops, it is not a Laughter Yoga Certificate but this training may be a great addition to your existing certification. This programme adds depth and width to the knowledge and wisdom of Laughter Yoga by bringing together the technology with the latest research.

The Laughter Therapy Training addresses the much needed aspect of mind and mentality at play in joyfulness and fun. It is a unique, innovative and new way of learning laughter and joyfulness with a view to present and teach.

Please note that this course is currently going through an accreditation process and the fee may increase as of January 2016.
