About The Laughing Heart
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to congruent development of each individual and the collective whole. The Laughing Heart combines inspirational entertainment and education committed to providing transformational tools that will help every one of us look at life from the perspective of a laughing heart.
The Strider Innertainment element of The Laughing Heart is a unique combination of conscious comedy, spiritual education, healing and interactive entertainment.
Drawing on a variety of teachings from various traditions of spirituality, psychology and philosophy, Errol and Rochelle present complex concepts in a way that makes them more accessible and relevant to our daily lives. They use loving- and light-hearted modalities that are both adaptive and provocative.
