InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he reflects upon the laughter and humor that seem to be a natural part of his monologues. He remembers a T’ai Chi teacher who once told him that the best practice is when one is “on the edge of hilarity”. He ponders the meaning of life, and notes that we often assign meaning based upon the satisfaction of our needs. He also suggests that humor is an important component of psychic and spiritual transmission. He asks viewers to consider if and when they take themselves too seriously.
