As I continue explorations into this new realm of performing, and after my first workshop with the Laughter League team yesterday and getting to know my newest favorite colleague, what do I find but his TED Talk! I’ve been raving how wonderful it’s been to make his acquaintance. What a delight to discover he’s already curated some of his views, experiences and philosophies into a beautifully condensed TED Talk.
o Our body is a mouth that never stops talking.
o Foam in, Foam Out.
o Clowning from the the Head, the Gut, the Heart.
o “If you’re not comfortable, they’re not comfortable.”
o Sometimes what the patient -person!- needs is control.
o Being available in the present moment is the best place to begin.
o We have a choice of where to put our awareness.
o We can follow a thought a long way, sit with a feeling, examine a want.
o Your attention is the most precious thing that you have, so spend it wisely.
o By choosing to be in touch with your breath and to be present with another person you give them the greatest gift that you can.
Thank you Jeff! I can hardly wait to work with you … this Thursday!
