Unconditional Laughter

Unconditional laughter will help you to get in touch with your true spiritual nature. It will also help you to keep your spirits high despite the challenges of life. It will mellow down your ego-mind and will alter your selfish tendencies to altruistic nature.

Laughter & Silence

Laughter deepens the silence, and silence deepens laughter. Unconditional laughter that follows silence is very profound and intense. It comes from deep within and flows like a fountain. It transcends the conscious and judging mind and unfolds the layers of the subconscious mind. It will release all your pent-up feelings and emotions.

Learning Silence Meditation

Silence is the mother of all meditations. It is the best reflective and contemplative tool which will help you to find solutions to many of your problems. Generally, people find it hard to maintain silence even for a few minutes. If you learn the art of silence in three stages, it will be easy to observe silence. These three stages are A. Silence from the body, B. Verbal Silence C. Mental Silence.

You will learn what is meditation and how to start meditating five minutes a day?

Lesson 3

Understanding Spiritual Laws

Whether we know it or not, every aspect of our life is influenced by certain universal spiritual principles. You may have noticed, there are times when you don’t have to struggle hard, and things come easy in life. And then there are times when certain good or bad things happen and one does not know the reason. What cannot be explained logically can be understood by these spiritual principles.

Law of Oneness: We are all one and interconnected, and we belong to the same source. By connecting to the source, we can unfold unlimited potentials.

Law of Impermanence: Life is change; everything is changing; nothing is permanent. Adversity brings out the best in people. In this impermanent world, we learn how to detach and accept what can not be changed.

Law of Imperfection: Imperfections are the design of the universe. Imperfections are the beginning of perfection. Learn what is 100-meter wisdom? How to learn from your mistakes? How to live an imperfect life perfectly?

Law of Karma: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. What you sow, so shall you reap. Understanding why we suffer? Karma Theory – An excellent coping mechanism. What is Karma Yoga?

Law of opposites: Everything in this universe occurs in pairs. Positive-Negative, Happiness-Sadness, Good-Bad, Yin-Yang. What makes us happy may become the cause of sorrows.

Homework: Slower Longer Deeper (SLD) Meditation

Lesson 4

Finding My Purpose in Life

We may have different goals in life, but we all have one larger common purpose in life related to mankind. Each one of us has unique talent through which we can make a difference in the lives of many people by helping them. Unconditional laughter shifts our perception from egocentric to altruistic qualities. One of the universal principles is the law of giving. Everything in the nature is based on principle of giving – mother earth, sun, air, trees, water etc. Richness is the ability to give, no matter how much you have.

How to become a super contributor, not super achiever?

Homework – Practicing daily random acts of kindness.

Humming Meditation (Practice)

Lesson 5

Cultivating Spiritual Values of Gratitude and Forgiveness

One of the definitions of spirituality is – if you can raise your spirits by yourself, and raise someone else’s spirits, you are spiritual. Appreciation and paying complement is the best way to lift others’ spirits. It will connect you with others very quickly. Simultaneously it will get rid of negative emotions jealousy and criticism.

Well-meaning people continually go through life, hurting one another. A friends insults, parent abuses, a lover cheat, all giving raise to a stream of painful memories. Without forgiveness, the bitterness keeps old wounds painful, hurting both the parities physically and psychologically.

Forgiveness breaks the grip of pain on our minds opening the doors of repairing resentments and grievances. However, it is easier said than done. Something deep within us stops us from asking for forgiveness, even if we want to. You will learn different factors of hindering apology and forgiveness and effective ways of letting go.

Homework:

  • Pay complements 3-5 people a day, including third-party complement.
  • Writing a letter to someone who has made a big difference to your life.
  • Writing a letter of forgiveness (asking for forgiveness or letting go of someone who has hurt you)

Lesson 6

Five Rooms of Work-Life Balance

There is an ancient wisdom of five rooms of Work-Life Balance. According to this philosophy, our life is like a house with five rooms:

1. Self 2. Family 3. Work 4. Social 5. Spiritual.

If we want our house to be clean or our life to be balanced, we need to clean all the rooms and take care of all these areas of life. Most people are focused on their work, leaving other areas of life unattended which creates an imbalance. We need to take an inventory of all the five rooms and ask ourselves a few questions about each room and contemplate.

Self: Understanding who am I? What is my true identity? What is the meaning and purpose of my life? Understanding ego-mind. What are my values in life? What is the difference between needs and wants? How is my physical health? How are my food habits; exercise routine; sleep; any chronic diseases. How is my mental health – am I happy? Any stress; am I able to express my emotions?

Family: please write down your family tree. Who are the five most important people who made a difference in your life? Who are the people living with you? How is your relationship with them?

Hearing meditation (practice)
Homework – take inventory of the first two rooms self and family and answer the questions.

Am I obsessed with my work so much that I ignore and neglect other rooms of life? Do I have adequate time for my family, spiritual life, exercise, fun, and recreation? What are the main issues in my workplace?

Social: How many best friends I have who can wake up in the middle of the night to help me? Do I have someone with whom I can share the joys and sorrows of life? How many friends I have who make me laugh? Am I friendly with my neighbours? How many times in a month do I volunteer services to serve other people?

Spiritual: do I believe in God or higher intelligence? How often do I pray or meditate? What are my other spiritual practices?

Living Laughter in Daily Life Four Strategies

Apart from doing Laughter exercises, how can you take the laughter with you where ever you go. You need to cultivate four elements of joy- Sing dance, play and laugh.

Singing: Like laughter, singing is also a breathing exercise. It helps to express your feelings and emotions and has therapeutic value.

How can you learn to sing even if you are not a good singer? You don’t have to be a professional singer to sing every day. If you can learn singing and chanting in a group, then you can do it alone easily.

Learn Vowel Sound Meditation and Humming Meditation, and you will discover your voice of your soul.

Homework: Practice Vowel sound Meditation and Humming meditation for 5 mins each.

Dancing: Scientific research shows that Any form of dancing reverses ageing, prevents dementia and Alzheimer’s, improves flexibility, builds muscles, burns calories. Through your body movements, you can express your feelings and emotions and open you the blocked energy channels.

In Laughter Yoga, we do dancing as a form of exercise, not as a performance. You can dance the way you want to dance without bothering about steps. You can dance standing or dance with your arms while sitting.

Homework: Spiritual Dance Practice

Lesson 10

Living laughter in daily life - Four Strategies Continues

Playing: The essence of laughter is – play. If you learn to play, you don’t have to laugh. Laughter will be the natural outcome of the play, and you will be laughing for the rest of your life, and this is what we learn from children. It all starts from the body as physical play, and slowly it develops a playful mental attitude, and you will find laughter everywhere.

Homework: Cultivating childlike playfulness through laughter exercises. Play with silliness, Fun Games

Laughing: Of course, laughter yoga is the mainstay of daily laughter practise, but there is no one way to laugh. You can find laughter everywhere if your mind is creative, and this is what you will learn in this workshop.

The easiest way to laugh more is to be with happy people. Identify people who makes you laugh more. Learn Gibberish language, using humour props, and you will learn much more.

Homework: Creating New Exercises on a particular theme.
