With open arms, she welcomes you to Joy School

Joy School is a unique online space where you can learn, relax, and unfold into your greatness while being seen, heard, and honored as the perfectly imperfect creature you are. These are strange days. Our commitment to staying centered, loving, and peaceful is being challenged at every turn. Joy School is dedicated to providing support and training for not only surviving these challenging times but transmuting them into fuel for exhilarating expansion and positive transformation. You’re invited to experience your own brilliant, unique and shining self with us—through private trainings, group-coaching Circles, and interactive conversations with some of the world’s top transformational superstars. Wherever you are in the world, you can experience all this online from the comfort of your cozy home. 

Joy School Circle is the heart and soul of Joy School. This popular, online group-coaching program provides personal, transformative training in a small group setting. You may not realize it, but you have a setpoint for joy. We all do. Whatever your past or current circumstances may be, there is a level of joy that—when you get close to it—begins to feel uncomfortable to you, so you subconsciously shut it down. Joy School Circles are designed to permanently recalibrate your setpoint for joy.
