November Reflection from Yours Truly

“The darkest hour is just before the dawn”.

This was the title of a post I read on LinkedIn on this very last day of October, and it was a long post that covered a lot of material including election, mental health and global warming.

I am not one for in-depth political debates as my knowledge of the area is insufficient for an intellectual conversation, and besides, I like to enjoy conversing deeply about topics that bring about and high, bright energy instead of anger, frustration and irritation.

In the heart of us all, I believe, is a peaceful lobbyist for our own passionate “endurements”, a lightworking warrior on the path of sharing change that has a good and nurturing effect on everyone and on our Earth.

In October I had the immence pleasure and privilege to share laughter with some truly inspirational groups, one of which was Sha Hussain’s “Be More You” who co-organised a fantastic day for World Mental Health Day.

In addition to organising the day he collected all the words everyone shared, and he came up with a globe of honesty and faith, thoughts and reflections, and heartfelt connection.

Read the words and taste them as you whisper, say or shout them into the open air, inside your mind or in your heart.

Which brings me back to the first line in this reflection, regardless how things may look right now for anyone, there is light ahead because we are one world.

Together we are co-creating a time where we are the same no matter all the outside circumstances we live with and bring to life.

Jointly we raise our vibration and every event we share where focus is on life and on health will bring the frequency even higher.

This is where we win – together where no one loses!

As always I am your totally non-political, non-religious, all-inclusive Everyday Laughter Queen out to change the world with goodness.

Wishing you warmth within your heart and daily hugs surrounding you!

Love, Laughter and Peace

Two life-changing workshops

…with leading laughter experts, Lotte Mikkelsen and Melanie Bloch.

Introduction to Laughter Therapy

Melanie and Lotte are excited to introduce an workshop designed to give you an experiential flavour of the full course.

In this 3.5 hour workshop you will be taken through

  • a process of Laughter Therapy first introduced by Dr Annette Goodheart in the 1970s
  • a completion process to gain momentum in your life through release of stuck energy through laughter
  • an experience of the Mystic Rose Meditation by Osho

The workshops runs on Saturday 7 November from 1pm to 4:30pm UK time and costs £45 per person. There will be 2 x 15 minute breaks.

To book your place on Introduction to Laughter Therapy please visit the UnitedMind Online Shop.

Inner Spirit of Laughter

Another truly transformational workshop with Lotte and Melanie.

During the four hours Melanie and Lotte take you on a journey through truth, life, being, core values and much more with it’s foundation set firmly in what laughter brings to you in the moment.

The workshops runs on Saturday 21 November from 2pm to 6pm UK time and costs £40 per person. There will be 3 x 15 minute breaks.

30-Day Challenge with Lidia Salvaggio

Lidia trained with me as Laughter Yoga Leader 9 years ago and I was really excited when she contacted me to join her 30-Day Challenge in November.

Here is what Lidia brings to us all:

Never before have we experienced times like these.

Right now many people are struggling to keep their mind and body healthy, whilst at the same time avoiding contracting a disease.  If any of this resonates with you, then now is the time for a new approach.

I decided to share a new conversation based on our body’s ability to fight and protect us from disease and not based on avoiding disease.

Starting 28 October, from 1 to 1:30 pm UK time, you will have the opportunity to listen to holistic and non-holistic practitioners for 30 consecutive days who will give you valuable advice on how to take care of your body, your mind, the environment you live in. 

The event will be in both Italian and English and I am looking forward to running a short laughter session together with Lidia on Saturday 21 November at 1-130pm UK time.
