“Find me at the workshop and I will show you! Hope to see you there!”

We always take away new ideas from the Advanced Scholars Workshop for building our therapeutic laughter practice, as well as for our business. We are always adding more people to our laughter family. Also, if you would like to save a bit on hotel rates, many of us choose roommates and some of us book each other a year ahead of time. Steve, our “Grand Poobah”, always has valuable knowledge and insight to share. Pam is a power/superwoman; on top of things, behind the scenes, and cooking up a storm of delectable desserts for our pleasure. Woo hoo! Can you sense my enthusiasm? Ha, ha. Those of you have not met me likely do not know that I love my association with WLT so much that my shoulder is the site of the ONLY WLT laughing world tattoo.

“See you in Columbus!!!!!”

If you haven't attended the Advanced Scholars Workshop, plan on it now. Take your calendars out and mark off the days. Do it NOW! Steve works really hard at making sure we all walk away with relevant information that will make us think and grow. Columbus is easy to get to, the hotel has always been very accommodating and nice, the price is well worth what you get....even months later. Above all, the camaraderie, the love, the support, the ideas, the fun and the new friendships you will create with fellow CLLs, will fill your mind, heart and soul until November rolls around again. This information is based on my experience of two of these workshops.

May you continue on your journeys of making the world a better place through laughter and love. JOY JOY JOY JOY DOWN in MY HEART!

Positive Activity Interventions

Speaking About Laughter, and What it All Means

Concurrent with the evolution of Gelotherapy (laugher therapy) and Gelotology (the science of laughter), there also is evolving a special vocabulary and conjecture as to why laughter therapy works. These will encourage improved understanding and communication.

“When the student is ready the teacher appears. When the teacher is ready the student appears.” – Albert Einstein.

Nobody is as smart as all of us together. That’s why at these events we are all teachers and all students. A few CLLs have prepared special sessions to help us focus on particular topics, but we allow plenty of time so that we all can share from a wealth of experience, intelligence and heart.

“What a fun workshop with super fun people.”

The Advanced Workshop was excellent and so much more than I expected. There was a great deal of new and exciting information shared that we can all use in our laughter experiences and personal lives. I was thrilled to meet you and Pam, and thought I was coming to a group where I would not know anyone. I was pleasantly surprised to have two people there I knew…Susan, my original laughter trainer, and my friend, Barbara, that I didn’t think would be there. The relationships in this group are clearly connected at a deep level and everyone offered their friendship and assistance with our businesses. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

“With gratitude for the joy of laughter, learning and sharing.”

I lead a one-hour laughter session at a senior living facility last week and used concepts I had learned at the Advanced ScholarsWorkshop in Columbus with much success. Each year that I attend the training in Ohio my creativity is inspired and I am willing to try new activities with my groups. The amount of information shared and relationships nurtured in the three days is truly priceless!!

“YEAH to all the Certified Laughter Leaders!!!!”

I had the chance to meet Susan and many other great leaders, at the Advanced Scholars Workshop in November. It was an unforgettable event. I love being a Certified Laughter Leader and thank God for leading me to the WLT. Thank You Steve and Pam for always being there to enhance what we do and what we can then share with the world.
