Joy’s mindful renewal class is wonderful. It meets me where I am with kindness, and inspires me to find courage to explore still more. Joy is an excellent teacher: knowledgeable, kind, articulate, and very adept at creating safe spaces such that I am able to grow.

Class outline

Each week, there are four mini-lessons, which include short teachings, guided meditations, reflections, writing prompts, and everyday practice suggestions. Each lesson is a small, accessible path to renewal, change, and growth. If you choose to enroll, the teachings are available not just for a month, but all year long. (I host this class on a protected page of my website, to which you have lifetime access.) This is a "live" course, in that it's happening now, but there's no particular time you need to show up. Take in the posts as they come or digest them during the weekend—whatever works best for you.

WEEK 1: Look Around Your Life (Clear the Path): Technology, relationships, roles, renewal space

WEEK 2: Look Inside Yourself (Listen Inward): Vulnerability, self-compassion, innate goodness, renewal space

WEEK 3: Reset Your Inner-Compass (Live Life True): Satisfaction, meaning, play; notice the good; reset the compass; renewal space

WEEK 4: Practice in Daily Life (The Beautiful Nitty-Gritty): Gratitude, grit, and grace; forgive yourself; trust yourself; renewal space


It’s helpful to look inside the class; to see, feel, and experience an example lesson. Here’s an excerpt: Roles We Play.


Because this course is live—happening now—we practice and share as community. Your renewal is personal, done in private and at your own pace, yet there's safe space to share your experience and hear from others. This makes us feel less alone and more brave. We all have yays and difficulties, insights and roadblocks. You move through this course on your own, yet supported by me and the other participants. 

An invitation from Joy:

Mindful Renewal has served as a gentle, true, and safe entry point into meditation for me. The guidance of Joy’s voice was soothing and led me to feel more gentleness, ease, and playfulness toward myself. The intentionality with which she paired her meditations, writing, photographs, and expressive writing prompts, led to some major breakthroughs for me. What a gift.
— Dana C.


We often sabotage our own efforts by thinking circumstances must be perfect and changes big, but I suggest a different philosophy: start right where you are and make small steps. If you want more ease, presence, growth, and renewal in your life, then you must begin. Commit to yourself for a month and also let things be imperfect, messy, and real. Join the class on your own. Or join with a group of friends, family, or coworkers. Do whatever supports your practice and your willingness to begin. Registration continues all year long. You're warmly welcome. (If you have questions, please contact me.)
