You are going to love this workshop plan! It is amazing with all of my "secrets" to a joyous time. If you are concerned about hosting a workshop and your style is more fun than serious and "tight", this is for you. This is a great way to slide into a comfort level with workshops!
My first workshop got me so high (on Joy), I floated for days, and the particpants did too.
Wow! is all I can say! Clients are still talking about the Joy Workshop!
There have been many things these days that might bring us down. People out there walking around sad faced and hurting and it might be because they read or watch the news. I know I don't watch the news! Do you?
You see, all we eat, drink, think, say and do becomes us. So if we partake in sadness and see cruelty and all that is there we are feeding on junk food. Yes our minds are slowly being corrupted one clip at a time .
Sometimes I see on Facebook here where there's an inspirational post and it might not get one visible like. Yet the post about somebody done somebody wrong songs get 46 comments and building.
Here's the thing, what we take in with our eyes becomes us, we reply and words are who we are.
OK so I got off on a teeny tiny tangent here. The truth is we all want to laugh and have fun like when we were kids. So now I want to share an experience I had around this.
One time I held the workshop and the list of people was interesting and even the staff at the library found interesting those who signed up because they knew the people. It seem funny to them that their were men on the list and there was another man with his wife signed up and when I saw it I loved it!
So they shuffled in, many a bit skeptic and it showed in some of their expressions on their faces. As each one came in I tag them with "hello my name is....You know those corny tags, right? After I asked their name I wrote the word "joy" and I let them know that for this class their last name is Joy. They smiled then sheepishly, or I meant squeamishly agreed. The funny thing is we instantly became family and that let everyone's hair down even if they only had a few of them.
So we begin and I shared powerfully of a time when I was not so happy of a tough time I had and then I asked everyone else to share where they were challenged. It was amazing because everyone wanted to pour in they did and it was a lot. I kind of knew this because I saw when they arrived that they were heavy with the stuff of life. I guess maybe they watch the news too and came here to be refreshed as my promo promised.
So we played a game we all stood up when we named our concern we all shook and shimmied and sent it all "landing into the big hole in the center of the room." Yes we all named a concern And prefacing it with the shift we were about to have we all laughed it away we named it and dropped it in that hole.
Well this is a brief summary in one of the exercises of the class. I want to tell you something, the only thing that matters;
Those 12 or so people left the building in a far different way than they had arrived and it was tthrough the same sliding doors. The front staff were amazed that the state of these people as they floated by the desk. Now I don't mean floatedliterally, as they didn't actually float by the desk but it left them lighter and freer and smiling. Really all that we did together was allowed them the space to share to be to laugh and feel joy.
I knew the one man in his usual setting and was surprised when he arrived in the attire I had requested which was something that meant joy to them. It was an adorable pie pattern hat with the spinner on top ,I'm sure you remember those. He had some sort of great cartoon character and he came to a space where he could wear them proudly and be himself.
I want you and your clients to experience this kind of joy I know that I floated for three days after I did this class and I want that for you too.
I am offering today this full workshop/class in editable form. This is for you to come get it and go teach as the world needs it and is asking for it. Let's be joy spreaders everywhere OK?
