Mindful Stress Management
Participants will learn how to reduce stress with mindfulness.
Life’s events often cause stress. But the way people respond to these events can compound the stress. Meditation trains people to become mindful—so they can respond to life’s events consciously, rather than react unconsciously. Simply put, becoming aware of tension can help you release tension.
Learn simple meditation techniques, and discover how integrating mindfulness into your daily life can help reduce stress.
Managing stress with mindfulness makes a significant difference!
I implemented mindfulness programs in four companies from varying industries. Participants reported a 35% increase from pre-program to post-program in their ability to manage stress. Read the details here.
Mindful Stress Management Program FAQs
What’s the difference between meditation and mindfulness—and which do you teach?
Mindfulness is a state of being aware of the present moment, rather than caught up in regrets about the past and worries about the future. Meditation is a technique that’s practiced to help people become more mindful. I teach both, since they’re closely related.
The meditation techniques offered in the program are synthesized from many different sources—and geared toward the general public. I consider this style of meditation to be restorative meditation, since it can help restore the mind to a more balanced state.
How long is the program?
Whatever you need! We can schedule a one-time presentation or a series. People have said that even a one-hour program has made a profound difference for them. My intent is for people to be inspired to integrate meditation and mindfulness into their lives. Those who do so realize the greatest benefits.

The programs Joy provides convey an “attitude of acceptance” and are very inspiring at the workplace and in every day life. I highly recommend Joyʼs training program and was especially impressed with benefits I experienced from the breath awareness meditation.
Joy was a featured speaker at our conference, MindSpring Metro DC’s 2015 Helping You Grow Conference. Participants thoroughly enjoyed her session on the benefits of meditation, many telling us that they left the session refreshed with several strategies to use in their busy lives. Thank you Joy!
Joy was the keynote speaker at our hospital for Nurses’s week in May, 2017 and 102 Nurses attended the event. Joy captured the full attention of every nurse in the room as she guided us through a mindful meditation exercise. Weeks later, we are still talking about Joy and how she inspired us to all to calm our busy minds through the power of meditation. It really works. Thanks Joy!!!
