“The faces of JOY!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of 6/9/13
The many faces of JOY!
Sometimes joy just bursts forth when something wonderful occurs.You achieve something you worked hard to achieve, maybe even doubted whether you could do it or not.Other times joy feels like a still lake deep within you radiating a peaceful feeling of delight in simply being.What energies of joy have you experienced lately?Do you invite and make room for different experiences of joy in your day to day life?
Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs. Joan King’s blending of science and spirituality birthed her professional coaching business, Beyond-Success LLC, in 1998.
