LAUGH YOUR WAY TO GRACE — THE HEALING POWER OF HUMOR

COMING January 2021

These days, laughter seems a long way away — held at bay by Covid19, fear, anxiety, stress, abrupt life changes, job loss, financial stress, family tensions, and health worries.

But it’s there—just like the tiny spark of hope in our hearts that drives it. Sure, the world has tried to beat it out of us, but . . .

It’s. Still. There.

Join me, Susan Sparks – ordained minister, professional comedian, author, and cancer survivor –as we reveal, remember, and rediscover the healing power of humor.

The course consists of twelve short modules (5-10 minutes each) which you can do at your own pace.

Here’s what we’ll be covering:

1) Introduction

2) Laughter by the Ancient Ones

3) Laughter and Self Perspective

4) Laughter and Perspective on Others

5) Laughter in Times of Transition

6) Laughter in the Bible

7) Laughter as a Spiritual Practice

8) Laughter in Times of Loneliness

9) The Physical healing power of laughter

10) The Psychological healing power of laughter

11) Laughter and Joy are Contagious!

12) Conclusion – Closing Ritual

The goal of this course is to help you remember that you can laugh in all aspects of life . . . even in a place of pain.  

Join me. Let’s remember our gift of laughter and —together — begin to change the world, one heart, one smile, one laugh at a time!
