Steve Bhaerman – A Course in Laughter 5 Weeks
While there’s a lot of serious work to be done to heal and transform our lives and world, now more than ever we need to fully care for ourselves.
And laughter is one of the best medicines for healing our bodies, minds and spirits. It brings us great joy and inner peace, which then makes us more available to serve others and the world’s most pressing needs.
This 5-week course with internationally-known author and workshop leader Steve Bhaerman offers you breakthrough tools to unleash your inner comedian, transform any negativity or pain in your life, and help free your spirit to connect more deeply with the world and those around you.
You don’t have to be a professional comedian to use the magical tools of the comic to bring love, laughter, wisdom and perspective into your life! And this fun, funny and incisive course helps you apply the tools of the comedian to your own personal human comedy and the many dramas our planet faces.
For decades, Steve Bhaerman – who has gained a worldwide audience as the “cosmic comic” Swami Beyondananda – has been entertaining (or “innertaining”) thousands with wit and wisdom. He also blogs about politics and current events from a spiritual perspective, prompting Marianne Williamson to call him the “Mark Twain of our generation.”
We are delighted to offer this rare offering in conscious comedy to our global Shift community. The class will consist of five 90-minute evening sessions, starting Monday, April 16 – Monday, May 14 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm PDT, 8:00 to 9:30 pm EDT.
Plus, you’ll receive a A Course in Laughter workbook and two Bonus e-books – Wake Up Laughing: An Insider’s Guide to the Cosmic Comedy and The Zen Cohens of Harry Cohen Baba – that will help you apply and embody what you learn in the course into your daily life.
As the Swami says, “You will wake up laughing and leave laughter in your wake.”
The old adage “Laughter is the best medicine” actually has a wealth of scientific research to support it. Many studies have linked laughter directly to improvements in physical health, relationships, job satisfaction and emotional wellbeing.
When you laugh, your whole body chemistry changes. It’s like a cleansing effect – you feel better and lighter. Laughter also cuts across boundaries and helps you connect better with others, even those you don’t know. It promotes group bonding, and laughter’s infectious nature elevates the mood of all those around you.
A Course in Laughter will give you time-tested tools for helping you stay resilient and grounded during these tremendous times of change. It can help you rise above personal challenges and gain new perspective on our global struggles. This course can also:
- Boost your immunity and lower stress hormones
- Decrease any pain in your body and relax your muscles
- Add joy and zest to your life
- Improve your mood and increase your resilience
- Ease anxiety or fears
- Heal your heart and free your mind
