Living Comfort, Living Joy:
Bringing More Love into Our Lives and the World

About Living Comfort, Living Joy

Comfort and joy are powerful pathways to awakening Divine love in our lives and in the lives of others. Through the channels of comfort, we touch the presence of the Spirit within us and around us, and discover great joy.


Living Comfort, Living Joy is an online 6-day spiritual journey that will fill you with tender-hearted compassion, encouragement, mercy, and the healing presence of love. It is also a time to renew yourself with deep and nourishing self-care.


The Flow of Living Comfort, Living Joy

For 6 days, beginning Monday December 11, 2023, you will receive an email containing daily nourishment and inspiration on living comfort and joy, structured with three simple components.

  • Reflections and practices—Nourish yourself with the gift and grace of comfort and joy through the reflections, breath awareness exercises and contemplative practices provided.
  • Journal Writing—Explore your comfort practice in more depth and take time to keep a journal during this retreat, responding to the given prompts.
  • Sharing—Each day, I will pose a question or suggestion for sharing. A platform for sharing will be offered. Sharing is optional and I will invite you to share your insights and experiences with each other.

PLEASE NOTE: This program is self-paced and participants will have access to the material after the six days, so don't worry if you don't complete it!
