What Is Your Conversation With The World? 

It's a cliche but true...

You Were Made For These Times

Welcome! We live at a time of considerable grief. I know the process well, having experienced grief in many ways, including the grief process created by childlessness, not by choice, which is very challenging. Whatever the cause of your grief, it opens a door so that you can embrace more of who you are and more of what life can be. It enables you to have a deeper and richer relationship with life. You leave superficial games to have more profound joys.

These are exceptionally important times for everyone, but especially women, who, over the past 50+ years, have been gradually emerging to take a larger role in the world. Women have been developing skills, doing a lot of inner work, and gaining experience in the workplace. Those who have been grieving losses from the past through sexism, racism, misogyny, and childlessness have acquired additional wisdom about cultural mistakes that hold too many people back.

It is time for women to lay claim to their place in the world.  I would love to help you do that.

Cultures Of Shame Do Not Create Thriving

The human survival agenda has meant that our cultures have been created using shame and violence. These aggressive and trauma-creating strategies are tools of choice for those whose interest is control, not quality of life. They are also the main reason for so many conflicts because those who live by those values do not want to lose their leverage over others.

The world is opening up. These times invite us to claim or reclaim our voices to explore new possibilities as we create new cultural systems. I find it to be so exciting and inspiring! What would you find inspiring?

Deep in my bones, I feel the energy of a beautiful new world that so many of us have imagined for so long. We have been inundated with talk of danger and survival for so long and unending emergencies claiming too much time, energy, and resources.  It is time to free ourselves from unnecessary crises to live a beautiful new conversation.

We need a conversation and process based on friendly values that can create trust and restore health to all of us, our cultural systems, and the earth. When we do, thriving becomes the new normal. The joy practice I have created is just one step among millions dedicated to creating a healthier, happier, more inclusive world.

One of the steps in creating this new, healthier world is to claim the good in ourselves and celebrate our unique and valuable gifts. This is not the same as self-promotion. It is the self-appreciation that comes from respecting the life we have been given, learning about ourselves and what we have to offer, discovering ways to contribute in a generous way, and caring for ourselves and our world in a natural and gracious way.

You can get started by signing up for our insights about cultural obstacles to joy and updates about our programs as they become available, which includes the Magic Of Joy Program.

You may also want to consider one of our coaching programs. We offer individual sessions as well as groups of sessions and subscriptions as well.

Welcome - I hope you enjoy the website and all the information you find here. I would love to hear about your conversation with the world.




Joy: The Most Beautiful Use Of Your Freedom

We are crossing many thresholds right now, from authoritarian and patriarchal cultures to mutual and collaborative systems, from nature abusing to nature supporting, and from survival to thriving. The Magic Of Joy supports individuals crossing the many thresholds we are facing now.

The Magic Of Joy Program is designed for seekers of a kinder, healthier, and more grounded way of living.  We support heart-focused seekers, especially those who have been othered:  women,  childless, and sensitives/empaths, in making important, self-honoring changes in their lives. It is especially helpful for those othered individuals who have some experience in life and are ready to take the next step in their life to one that honors them and is more rewarding and joyful. They may be living through a personal transition or on a different life path due to circumstances or because they are different.  

Seekers want greater fulfillment, more authentic ways of living, clarity about toxic cultural dynamics, freedom from oppressive social narratives, and the energy skills to develop the beautiful, wise energy of a mature and grace-filled human.


The Magic Of Joy helps you:

  • understand outmoded but active cultural patterns to release their harmful dynamics, especially authoritarian ones,
  • understand how the past supports us today and what no longer serves us,
  • discover the "why" of many of your inner and outer problems so that your mind is on your side,
  • learn how joy provides you with a healthy channel to support your freedom and thriving,
  • become skilled in energy techniques that will shift your energies and focus toward the freedom of joy,
  • heal the mistakes and mindsets of the past,
  • reimagine your identity to embrace the future lovingly and enthusiastically,
  • discover others who are doing this important work,
  • find your place in this time of transition,
  • reimagine your life by changing the story you are living into the world.

Join us to immerse yourself in new ideas about living in our beautiful world. Ready to transform your ideas about what is possible? You are invited to this beautiful journey.
