‘The best moment of my festival so far!’ was one comment we received.
Considering the festival had already been going for 3 days, we were chuffed.
What made the sessions so special?
We were very focused. No matter how tired we were, we all held the space individually and collectively. We started each day with an opening ritual which connected us all. The waa-waa woo-woo moments are important.
We all had our own speciality. Each of us flowed comfortably and effortlessly with our own style. The team had Indian, Australian, Portuguese and UK roots so we incorporated Bollywood, yoga, juggling and general high energy. In addition, we kept it real and related the sessions back to experiences we all related to like being tired(!), hot, losing the toilet roll and having jelly legs.
We also had 3 laughter dragons!
Everyone loved the laughter dragons!
Here is a short video of them.
What else did we do? We connected. We had regular moments when we all had the opportunity to connect with one or more of the other participants and as we know, this increases the energy flow immediately, perceptibly and dramatically. Everyone loved these moments.
We also had the time and opportunity for lying down and have a relaxation, laughter meditation and our own settling & grounding experience – which we did in our own way.
And after 5 days of festivalling and 3 days of sessions, we still managed to look like this
One unexpected by-product was how this helped us develop our own style. We all got insights into how to develop further and how to integrate laughter yoga practices deeper into our own style and life.
Roll on 2023?
