A Toolkit

A toolkit 1

What’s Here?

This website contains tried and tested tools and practices for Empowerment, Connection and Conscious Action. The Joyality Program page, at the far right of the menu, contains the main toolkit: a series of experiences, processes and exercises. We strongly encourage you to read through the first few pages of our website “Why Joyality?”, “Stay Awake!”, “Connect!”, and “Act!” before diving into The Joyality Program itself. These pages will explain the foundation and structure of the program and will deeply enhance your experience of the tools.

Our personal experience and research has shown us that three key pieces to developing a personal and nourishing relationship with life and the universal pot of joy are:

  • Stay Awake! 
  • Connect!
  • Act! 

The field of ecopsychology supports our idea that these three things can greatly improve our mental and emotional health, as well as the health of our societies and environment.

The Joyality Program is a toolkit of practices which help us to do each of these things, woven together to take you on a journey towards deeper joy and more effective action for positive change.

Throughout this online toolkit you will learn to:

  1. Connect with your deeper feelings about what is happening in the world
  2. Discover your unique gifts and passions
  3. Connect more deeply with nature
  4. Connect with other people, both “allies” and “opponents”
  5. Apply your unique gifts, skills, and resources to creating positive change in your own life, in your community, and on the larger social, economic, and cultural scale
  6. Care compassionately for yourself and others in order to maintain and strengthen your commitment to action and your joy at being alive at this time in history

We suggest that throughout this process you keep a Joyality Journal. In many of the exercises you will be writing about your thoughts, feelings, experiences and ideas and it is helpful to keep all of this in one place.

We hope that these tools, and the transformative concepts that underly them, will heal, connect, and empower you to become the best version of yourself and to courageously and joyfully follow your path to heal the world.

We thank you for your love and care for the world, for your strength in acknowledging the reality of what is happening to it, and for choosing to access your infinite creativity and power to create the change we so deeply need.

With Joy and Gratitude,

Rachel and Eshana
