A Path to Joy and Presence - Summer 2022 Alumni Immersion


“Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments – often ordinary moments. Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we’re too busy chasing down the extraordinary moments. Other times we’re so afraid of the dark that we don’t dare let ourselves enjoy the light. A joyful life is not a floodlight of joy. That would eventually become unbearable. Instead, I believe a joyful life comprises joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, and inspiration” – Brené Brown.

Brené’s research found that JOY is the most vulnerable emotion in humans. Shocking, I know! The sad thing is, the fear of vulnerability – causes us to forebode it and miss out on it in our lives.  Many people also suffer from feeling “worthy” of the joy, or that they have “done enough” to experience it.

These stories need to change – for our mental and physical well-being, and for future generations.  We have to learn and practice how to create and receive joy and love. This practice will transform the way you feel and view your life.

This body of work will be done in the summer – because summer is time for joy – and it is often when these stories will come up.

The ability to feel and experience joy is connected to how worthy we feel of it. This challenge does not help our growth or our happiness.

Each immersion engaged in – a body of work is done, and we come closer to living our lives from a place of emotional awareness, authenticity, and health – mind and body.

Working with Dr. Jodi at this level will always focus on ACTIVE PRACTICE.

ACTIVE PRACTICE is the only way to turn knowledge into wisdom: repetition, commitment, persistence, and consistency.

It is no different than building muscle physically. But, of course, you all know this by now!

Participants will be limited to 10 maximum to keep intimacy and connection for growth.
