When I surrender to being laughed, it seems I/me/self/Dave gets out of the way, and from somewhere before Thought, the Universe expresses wisdom through me in concise phrases that fall out of not my mouth, but the Word Hole. That's Laughter Channeling. Visit this page for a fuller set of examples plus videos expanding on these memes.

Think Less, Laugh More


In 2019-2020, I taught a series of 50 mini-classes based on Laughter Life Lessons learned making Laugh of the Day videos.

Laughnosis Training Course


Around 2012, I began to suspect laughter is hypnotic. Two years later I presented this idea at the HypnoThoughts Live hypnosis conference in Las Vegas. Colleague James Hazlerig was intrigued and for the next several years we compared notes of our exploration with clients. In 2017 we teamed up to create the Laughnosis training course.

Erasing Your Anxiety and Calming Your Kids


I only presented this one hour laughter workshop once, in May 2020, to help locked down parents working from home and homeschooling at the same time. Watch the replay for timeless lessons about Erasing Your Anxiety and Calming Your Kids.

Laughter Lost and Found


The early days of the pandemic were a fertile time of creativity and growth in my exploration of laughter. I wrote the workbook Laughter Lost and Found to go with two 60 minute workshops when an insight revealed the subtitle: You Can Both Lose Yourself and Find Yourself in Laughter.

Books and Audios

Dave laughs on the cover of the book called "5 Ways Laughter Will Change Your Life: The impact and implications of allowing your inner laugh to come out every day."

5 Ways Laughter Will Change Your Life


The first edition of this ebook was written in Saigon in early 2018, with periodic updates keeping it timely and fresh. This is a concise look at the mental immune system and other key Laughter Life Lessons I had realized up until that time.

Befriending Your Breath


This three part .mp3 audio series will help you be more present and aware of your breath, laugh effortlessly each day, reduce stress and tension in your mind and body, improve circulation and sleep, and strengthen your immune system. Recorded in Saigon in 2017. Listen to samples here.

Laughter For the Health of It


After my 2014 presentation at the HypnoThoughts live hypnosis convention in Las Vegas, colleague Kelley T. Woods approached me about collaborating on what became the book Laughter for the Health of It. A product of its time, this book looked at the biology, chemistry, and neurology of laughter and how the language and techniques of hypnosis and NLP can incorporate laughter to make coaching, nursing, parenting, teaching and more easier and more fun.

Relax On Purpose


This 2013 hypnosis .mp3 is a 25 minute mental vacation from stress. Release the tension in your mind and body and discover new possibilities for accepting "what is" without knee jerk reactions or other conditioned responses. This recording is an early example of my work helping people exponentially enhance their emotional intelligence. 
The result is often a better emotional quality of life: a quieter mind, more consistent inner peace, improved communication and relationships, enhanced creativity and spontaneity, steadier leadership, superior decision making, greater self-love and trust, getting unstuck, launching new projects, and a simpler way of being, more lighthearted and fun.  
All of these are examples of growth and personal development I've experienced too.

My evolution began in 2008 as I neared the end of a business partnership with my soon to be ex-wife. That's when I found a book whose impact I can't possibly exaggerate. 

It's by Rob Brezsny and called "Pronoia Is The Antidote For Paranoia: How The Whole World Is Conspiring To Shower You With Blessings".

This book continues to change lives - my own and clients in my book club/mastermind group, The Pronoia Experimentation Pod.

The insights this book inspired in me revealed newfound hope and optimism; willingness to experiment with pleasure, joy, imagination, curiosity, resilience, kindness, and laughter; awareness of the role of Thought in creating my perceptions; recognition of my next career path; and getting undiagnosed and unmedicated after 20 years believing I was bipolar.

The Pronoia book gave rise to aspirations of who I wanted to be, which is who I've become. Since beginning to train as a coach and hypnotherapist in 2010, I've been innovating through the daily exploration of infinity laughter, pronoia, and the Nature of Thought. 
In a daily video series that ran nearly 3.5 years, I laughed with people in all 50 United States and 70 other countries. During that time I traveled internationally to speak and teach, living in Saigon for nearly two years.  

This photo was taken less than an hour after landing in Vietnam, on the way from the airport to my new home. It was the first of many beautiful signs of the Conspiracy of Blessings called pronoia.

In 2019, I returned to my native New York to bid farewell to my Mom and help my Dad for a while. Next I traveled to Melbourne, Australia, expecting to stay one month then return to Vietnam. That's when the pandemic started and I'm still in Oz, writing this in December 2022. 

My exploration of laughter, pronoia and the Nature of Thought has supported my continued growth and development these past three years, especially hosting Laughter Gym every day, where I became aware of my own laughter channeling
Maybe I love hearing "wow, I never thought about it like that before" because every time I have that thought myself my emotional quality of life improves.
