Creating a Joyful Life

In this unique, uplifting workshop you will have an opportunity to connect with a greater sense of your own wholeness and internal joy. Did you know that when you are in your natural state of joy, your heart rate, immune system, and ability to respond, all function optimally? We are literally wired to be happy and to live our lives in joy.

Unfortunately, most of us believe that joy is “out there”, something which, if we work hard enough, we may someday attain. This workshop is designed to challenge those beliefs and have you see that joy is only a thought away.

By engaging in discussions, meditations, and exercises you will see how your (often unconscious) thoughts and feelings may be preventing you from opening to the everlasting joy you hold within.

 What you will experience:

  • A simple breath presence meditation to release stressful thoughts and feelings.
  • Discussions on responsibility, trust, and surrender.
  • A powerful meditation focused on recognizing the weight of our stories around how life “should be”.
  • Discover that gratitude for Life, just as it is, is the perpetuating energy behind living a joyful life.

The value of this workshop lies, not only in becoming aware of how our thoughts, words, and deeds impact our ability to live a Joyful Life, but also in the awareness that joy is not in some far off place. It is always right here, quietly waiting for us to notice it.


Presented by John David Sparks and Valerie Reilly
