Being a facilitator or teacher of any method, thought, therapy, modality and product or programme is not only about learning the material and delivering the manual in group or individual sessions.
The wisdom that is shared from a passionate teacher, tutor, mentor to an engaged audience is captivating and inspires motivation and action in those who listen.
Not only do the learners listen but the main listening is the faciliator who delivers to a variety of individuals in a group. It takes an enourmous amount of skills to deliver training, workshops, key-notes and lectures. However, the two main ones are living the programmen and listening for the heart.
If you do not hear the unsaid and speak to the quiet you may lose out on touching someone deeply and profoundly.
There is something extremely moving and touching in working with groups where the eyes sparkle and the smile slowly widens, even if you are the only person to notice. This is the heartfelt reward and blessing that arises from the work I do.
I don’t always get it right, no one does.
Even if it is for that one person in 100 people it is macial then it is magical for me, too.
We move each other with our laughter and joy, with our willingness to be vulnerable when the laughter flows and the eyes meet in joy and play.
Nothing in a laughter session can be misconstrued as something it is not.
Laughter is joyfully shared without expectations and without disruptive thinking.
As faciliator there is more to laughter than what meets the eye and the ear – and the tummy musles.
When you listen you become present and kindheartedness flows naturally. Connection and compassion opens your heart.
I wish you love and kindness in your listening efforts.
With Love, Friendship, Honesty, Kindness, Health, Hope, Goodness, Grace, Gratitude, Understanding, Faith, Peace, Forgiveness, Patience, Diligence, Love, Blessings and Joy

The Laughter Yoga dilemma
When someone wants to try Laughter Yoga and look at what is available, there are many events taking place online.
However, it can seem very daunting to enter an online laughter club as people all know each other and may be laughing so much, loud and long that it puts ‘outsiders’ off the initial trial.
Please don’t leave!
There are many ways of running a laughter club and laughter training, and none of those ways need to be intimidating. On the contratry. We aim to make the laughter event a space safe and enjoyable for everyone regardless your past experience, background and vision.
If you find yourself unsure if Laughter Yoga is for you after having experienced sessions online which may on occasion have seems full of crazy laughs, gimmicks, props, non-stop laughing, and more, please let us have a conversation about what Laughter Yoga is also and even more so about.
The dilemma is real and online is not always helping put your mind at ease but a voice to voice or face to face chat can calm the turmoil and provide the basis for your decision in an honest heart-based way.
No doubt everyone experiences pros and cons for why Laughter Yoga is a good thing but in my mind and heart there is no dilemma, there is only the good reasons why daily Laughter Yoga makes sense.
Laughter Yoga is for everyone no matter what!
Laughter Yoga is super-popular and there is real opportunity for sharing it both personally and professionally. Don’t let the chance escape you.
For more information about our workshop and training programmes please get in touch on email@example.com or call to have a conversation on 07736341717.
I hope you will follow and like us on these platforms and help us grow awareness of Laughter Yoga, joy and kindful living.

Laughter Training – best courses ever!
The 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training runs in London 5 times a year with Lotte and Mel. We bring you an exceptional journey into the depth of laughter and fun, as well as exploring aspects of yourself and your plans for bringing laughter to others.
Teaching Laughter Yoga Leader Training started for me in 2007 in St. Albans, and since then I brought the training to Durham and online in 2009, to London in 2010, to Blackpool/Preston in 2015 and wherever your team takes me.
However, with Leader Training in London and Teacher Training in Hemel Hempstread, as well as the new model for self-study, being really popular courses, I have decided to place my focus on those locations and hope to bring you here.
This means that your chance to train with me in St. Albans, Durham and Preston is only once in 2023 on the dates listed below.
The great news is that there is plenty of opportunity to train with me in London and Hemel Hempstead.
Now is the best time to book your spot on one of the 2023 courses!
Once you are a Laughter Yoga Leader your exploration has only just started and it opens the world of Laughter Yoga to you, and also becoming a Laughter Yoga Teacher.
