Learning with JOY!

I was meant to be a teacher! In my 10th grade English class, I presented an oral report, inviting everyone to participate. My instructor, Mrs. Davis, later declared that I was a natural born teacher! I took her advice and made teaching my career. Although the focus of instruction has shifted along the way, my higher purpose has always remained the same: to inspire, uplift, encourage, ignite, awaken, and enlighten all students to see the beauty within, to fully express themselves, and to discover their unique gifts.

TEACHING PROGRAMS

My life has been a laboratory for everything I teach.  My inner awakening began in 1984, after the birth of my daughter. Since that time, I’ve learned to live more courageously and to welcome transformation as a path to personal freedom and joy. I have created and led multiple workshops on inner growth experiences, public speaking, and the art of self-expression.

Inspired by my experiences, I created curriculum for both COURAGEOUS LIVING and EXPRESS YOURSELF WITH JOY so I could bring these life-enhancing teachings to others. 

 

In the COURAGEOUS LIVING classes we explore: 

 

  • How FEAR develops, serves us, and limits us 

  • How BELIEF SYSTEMS are formed and the control they have over us

  • How the POWER OF WORDS and thoughts create our reality 

  • How to distinguish MIND CHATTER from the INNER VOICE 

  • How FORGIVENESS is necessary for true freedom

  • How practicing GRATITUDE can transform your life.

 

In the EXPRESS YOURSELF WITH JOY classes we focus on: 

 

  • FREEING your SPEAKING VOICE through the use of humor, imagination, and creativity

  • ENGAGING with others in fun SELF-EXPRESSION ACTIVITIES

  • LEARNING to CONSTRUCT and DELIVER a PERSONAL TALK 

  • DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE and EASE while expressing yourself with joy!

In all of my classes, a selected topic is introduced, explored, and experienced through personal sharing and experiential activities. 

I'd love to work with you to meet your needs whether it be single workshops, weekly consecutive classes, or as a presenter for personal growth retreats. 

BENEFITS

​The topics covered encourage increased self-awareness, assist in creating community and deeper connection to others, foster a greater sense of freedom, peace and joy, and offer tools that invite personal transformation.

Public Speaking Workshop Participant

"Joy made this public speaking workshop so much fun. We were learning without any sense of nervousness. The morning exercises broke the ice and freed all of us to be more in touch with our uncensored inner creativity. She created a space where each participant felt safe to stand and speak. I will remember this experience as I bring my speaking out into the world."

" If you have a fear of public speaking then this is a great class to loosen up and let your natural voice find expression. I felt safe and supported while exploring my own stories. I also learned fabulous tips for shaping a story and making it come alive. It's obvious that Joy is a teacher of many years in the final stages of becoming a diamond."

"I had a great time! Juicy discussion topics and excellent engagement with all the participants.  I COMPLIMENT YOUR FACILITATION SKILLS: Started and ended on time, made sure no one hogged the floor, listened well, and validated all. You showed the power of vulnerability and strength by sharing personal stories. Your passion shows. That’s the key to facilitation to me!"

"Courage and joy is something we ALL can use more of these days. Joy Goodman has long been facilitating these values in young people and adults. I have observed her in action over the years and all I can say is that she is truly a BEAM OF LIGHT and an INSPIRATION."

Courageous Living Class Participant

"I attended Joy Goodman’s Courageous Living class at the request of my daughter and frankly, I am happy she convinced me to attend. At nearly 87 years old it is hard for me to envision anything new. What could this class do for me?  Each week Joy offered different subjects for consideration. I became engrossed and wanted to contribute what l could. Joy offered suggestions to lift oneself up from the everyday drudgery we must meet in order to survive day after day.  After completing her sessions, I can reaffirm, 'Life is worth living.'"
