The 2010 5th Australasian Conference is all go ! ! !
For the last six weeks I have been on holidays in the USA, Canada, and Alaska. Apart from seeing some magnificent scenery and wildlife, I managed to catch up with some Laughter Yoga folks who I hadnt seen in a while. One of them was Allan OMeara in Vancouver. Quite an amazing young man who specializes in Laughter Yoga with Seniors in particular those suffering from Alzheimers
It was GRRREAT to hear the strategies, tactics, tricks, hints, and tips he used to win them over every time. I instantly
thought of ways I could use some of these things with my business clients. Which is what the Conference on the 6th and 7th of November is all about. Giving and receiving ideas that could improve the way we use and deliver Laughter Yoga to others. While we can read and see information on line and in newsletters, there is nothing quite like the interaction of a face to face presentation and discussion
How effective the Conference is can be determined by what we learn and are then able to take back to our Laughter Clubs, workplaces, clients, or just to use personally. In past conferences I have seen different laughs by different Laughter Clubs. Its amazing to see how creative others can be. A lot of the Laughter Yoga folks are also involved with dealing with folks who are suffering from a variety of mental and physical illnesses. Hearing from them gives me many ideas about how we can prevent these things happening in the first place. I have then been able to use these in some way with my clients. And finally I always come away hearing stories that can change my own life in some way
For this reason its important that we get as many and as varied types of presenters as possible. At this stage I have two amazing presenters who will be coming from overseas. They will also be holding some pre and post Conference Workshops for you to enjoy on the 5th and the 8th. Locally I only have one presenter confirmed at this stage so there is room for many many more. If you would like to share your stories and experiences please contact me as soon as possible so we can work you into the agenda
