<p>Many of you may disagree - but there are mental ways to handle the situation of a disruptive participant. </p>
1. You can imagine that you are unzipping this person from the top of their head to their groin<br>
2. Once you have done that - send the thoughts of being peaceful, or whatever you think they need to settle down. <br>
3. Than zip them back up.<br>
4. Sounds far out - but try it on anyone who is disruptive in your life and you'll be very pleasantly surprised.</br>
