This project is a personal journey into what I have called the “Joyful Transformation process”; a process that integrates personal growth activities, activities to facilitate a connection with creativity and joy, plus spiritual practices. It provides freedom, connection with others, creativity, and a new sense of well-being. The results from this project include my own transformation that manifests in three major areas: greater sense of well-being, greater sense of freedom, and greater connection with others through authenticity, the development of the Joyful Transformation logo, Tool cards, and narratives, which I expect to share and use to help people live a better life.
