Mid-2021 Moment from Yours Truly!

Every day is a day where there is potential for something joyful occurring.

Each day we make our decisions for our shared energy, smiles, and frowns, and how we go into life is a reflection of those choices we have already made consciously or subsconscioutly when we open our eyes to a new awakening.

Not all choices seem to be made by ourselves but think again, consider what brought those events, choices, decisions into your presence. If you were not there none of what happens around you would be happening.

Mind buggling? Yes, maybe, or not.

At the core of it all is out willingness to take responsibility and be accountable for life as we encounter or moreso create it.

There is a lot of things we often feel we cannot do anything about, and that may be true, but for those things where there is an option to start change happening when one person leaps forward into the unknown, then be that person if you have the thought.

The support when walking in front, taking a stand for something bigger than the ego, is way vaster than the trolling that sometimes come from unexpected angles. Judgment is within us all but practicing Laughter Yoga has the potential of removing the judgmental streak in us all, and we become accepting, considerate, compassionate and understanding.

We are all the same, regardless our colour, flavour, belief, education, orientation, and we all have on world, we are one world.

As the Pride month of June has now come to a close I think of the support and love for the LGBTQ community and wish that every day of the year will keep it flourishing and growing.

The companies I have worked with over the past many years have extensive policies of inclusion and diversity, and they honour the multitude of talents people from all walks of life bring to their business and their lives.

Laughter brings us closer to our essence where there is no difference between us. Differences are made up by people. Humankind is kind and human in our heart of hearts.

Share laughter liberally as with joy comes freedom, acceptance and love.

Wishing you a July full of joy, jiggling, and jazzy jumps.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Laughter Therapist Training – a popular choice

Becoming a LaughterTherapist is a really special achievement that requires true human insight, awareness, and a willingness to release own trauma, stories, and tension.

Melanie Bloch and I facilitate the Laughter Therapist Training together on 21-22 August in Stanmore, a course that was developed by myself over many years and brought together in unity with Mel.

It is an awesome course!

Mel brings an essence of love, forgiveness and pure being to the course and together we take you on a journey of self-discovery to enable you to assist others on their one jouney to joy and laughter.

The Laughter Therapist Training starts with 2 days spent together, and then the real training begins when you take on 2 case studies each running over 8 sessions.

This course is equivalent to Level 7 training. The requirement for the training is to have a practicing background as therapist, holistic therapist or counsellor.

To book your place on the training: www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/accredited-laughter-therapist-training-hemel-hempstead.

If you are interested in finding out more about this training please join us on 18 July from 2-5:30 at the Introduction to Laughter Therapy. Click to book.

MOMEGA (Make Our Mother Earth Great Again) & the Masked Laugher

I met Steven Voet at the Laughter Yoga Congress in France in 2019, a man with a vision and on a mission to change the world, like so many other people.

However, Steven has a charm and an ability to effortlessly enroll you in his idea because it is great and it makes sense.

You cannot ignore him and he is full of laughter!

MOMEGA’s manifesto is

  • Mission: UNITE ME
    Helping to recover the inner connection & the connection with Mother Earth.
  • Vision: KEY=ME
    Everyone can contribute to a solidary & sustainable World.
  • Strategy: CHAHAHALLENGE ME
    Hereby creating hope, faith & a globallong-term loving focus on our Home. See less

We are already making our Earth an amazing and caring place, let us simply do a little more!

In addition I laughed with MOMEGA’s ambassador, The Masked Laugher, about life and happiness and you can watch our chat on https://www.facebook.com/Hohohahahappy/videos/523514845747941.
