Coming Home to Yourself: A 6-Week Course in Mindfulness ($59)

Mindfulness isn't a self-improvement project, it's a self-kindness practice. The instructions are simple, but their application requires effort. It's beneficial to have a teacher guide the way. This 6-week course includes formal instruction on meditation and informal instruction on how to pay attention in daily life. Once you cultivate awareness, you can shine it everywhere: breath, body, difficult emotion, positive emotion, relationships, and life choices. In small yet important ways, you can change your life. You can come home to yourself—your wise, messy, unique, imperfect, beautiful self.

Coming Home To Yourself is a gentle, loving, sacred invitation to pause, over and over, and discover you. With integrity born of her own personal practice, Joy offers bits of wisdom with grace, beauty, presence, openness and softness. She is with you on your journey.
— Jeanne L.

  • If you miss a week, you can begin again the next week (or the next week).
  • Whether you're new to mindfulness or seasoned at meditation, looking to revive your practice, this course can help.

Weekly outline

Each week includes extensive written teaching, 1 video, 2-3 guided meditations, 3 everyday awareness practices, 5 mini-assignments, and 6 photographs + insights (to be viewed as the week progresses). There's copious material, but you can practice in small doses. This isn't a job to complete, it's a course to be lived. Let it be messy, real, and imperfect.

An Invitation from Joy:

Taking Coming Home To Yourself was the greatest gift I have given myself in years. Joy’s step-by-step guidance, her daily reminders and gentle voice, opened up my life in ways I never imagined. She offers her dedication to mindfulness and meditation with such authenticity and truth in every aspect of the class. The experience brought me self-awareness and self-compassion.
