“You want to uplift humanity? Begin by uplifting your own face. Let the levitational pull lift the corners of your mouth into a smile. Levity will help you rise above whatever has been bringing you down.” — Swami Beyondananda
My cosmic comic co-heart Alicia Dattner continues her foray into the domain of “spiritual comedy” — the kind that leaves you laughing, and smiling. If you’ve been dealing with a serious case of seriousness, Alicia’s good humor and wit — and those of her guests — will restore regular-hilarity before you develop a full-blown case of humorrhoids.

As we adjust to the energies of the summer soul-stice, here’s one thing I suggest we try: taking things less seriously. It’s so easy to get caught up in our lives, our businesses, our relationships… and we lose perspective, and forget the joy and wonder that life offers in every moment. What’s the best way to change this? Laughter!
“I’ve been on a raw food diet for 2 weeks… Ugh, I just found out raw food doesn’t include cookie dough.” -Alicia Dattner
Did you know the average adult laughs only 3 times in one day. Isn’t 3 times waaayyy too low? We should definitely laugh more than we eat because: a) it’s cheaper b) it burns calories from eating.
This is why I’m so excited to share with you my dear friend Alicia’s event, The Spiritual Comedy Festival’s Summer Series. Along with 4 new comedians & spiritual teachers over 4 weeks, she’ll be sharing some of her treasured golden nuggets of humor and wisdom on what it means to be human.
The festival is free and takes place online, so you can enjoy the whole thing from the comfort of your home (or anywhere).
Why join us? Because this kind of laughter lets us:
- Get our giggles and our Ah-Ha’s in the same place
- Experience ourselves as human and divine at the same time
- Strengthen our immune system, endorphins, & resiliency
- Awaken our creativity, courage, memory, alertness
This sacred, irreverent laugh-apolooza includes several internationally-touring, award-winning comedians, and renowned spiritual teachers. Each of us have a deep desire to share our unique and hilarious perspectives on life, as well as the “really important” stuff like parking tickets, lovers’ quarrels, and waiting in line at the post office. We may even poke a little fun at how much we love to be spiritual.
When you join, you’ll get access to the festival’s summer series shows. And, if you are really ready to laugh yourself silly, you can join The Divine Laughter Club. Details to follow when you sign up. Come play with us, and create a life that’s filled with more divine wonder, compassion, truth, and best of all… laughter.
See you there!
