6 Simple Steps to Feel More Joy Now
Awakening Your Joy Potential
a weekend retreat to create lasting joy in mind, body, heart, and spirit
January 27-28, 2018 (9:30-6:30 each day)
@ the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center, Bloomington, IN
(*this workshop has no religious affiliation and welcomes people of all paths!)
Led by Christine Eartheart, Founder of Joy Potential
Is Awakening Your Joy Potential for You?
- Do you feel weighed down by what is happening around you and have lost a spirit of hopefulness about your life or the world?
- Do you sometimes feel disconnected from the person you once were and wonder where your joy went and how to get it back? (It’s the ultimate loneliness when we even feel disconnected from ourselves.)
- Is your life dictated by “to-do lists,” rather than fueled by the rush of inspiration that ignites you from your core?
- Are you often tired when you wake up and dread your day before it even starts and then go to bed exhausted but unfulfilled?
- Do you have lots of things to be grateful for and yet still don’t feel joy (and even feel guilty for or confused by it)?
- Has your life become monotonous and mundane?
- Have you lost touch with your sense of magic?
- Do others see you as a happy person, but, deep down, it doesn’t feel that way?
- Does it feel like too much work to stay positive?
- Do you worry about how your own negative energy is rubbing off on your kids, spouse, friends, colleagues, etc.?
- Does happiness seem fleeting and elusive, rather than fully accessible?
- Are you tired of being in your head and over-thinking things and feel hungry to reconnect to your heart and soul?
- Have you experienced some life challenges you’ve never fully bounced back from?
- Are you surrounded by so much negativity that you are struggling to stay centered in joy?
- Is your inner peace clouded by self-doubts, fear, anxiety, and worry?
- Do you know what you “should” be doing to feel more joy but are stuck in self-sabotaging patterns?
- Do you hold back your joy to protect yourself from disappointment?
- Do you quiet your joy to make others feel more comfortable?
- Do you put a cap on how much joy you let yourself experience — because it feels selfish to let too much in?
- Has your life become so focused on making others happy that you’ve become depleted when it comes to your own?
- Are you tired of feeling constantly stressed and overwhelmed?
- Do you sense something’s missing and there must be more to life?
- Do you feel disconnected from your purpose and passion?
- Do you keep postponing joy, saying it can wait until after you get one more thing done – and then joy never comes?
- Are you HUNGRY to feel more inspired, motivated, and joyously alive?!
Or are you someone who simply LIGHTS UP when it comes to continually growing into your potential, living your optimal life, and experiencing your greatest capacity for joy, someone who wants to look back at the very end and smile, knowing you have made the absolute most of this incredibly precious gift of life?!
Using techniques based in Positive Psychology, fascinating neuroscience, and everything I’ve been so fortunate to learn from thousands of sessions with clients and creating a truly joyful life, be immersed in a transformative learning environment. You will reignite joy and FEEL it flowing again and will gain an abundance of tools to effectively rewire your brain and reorient your whole being towards experiencing more joy!
Uncover your barriers to joy. Discover why they’re holding you back and how to shift them!
Dive deep into creating joy in every area of your life — with illuminating knowledge, new personal insights, and concrete techniques!
Unplug from stress, exhaustion, and overwhelm and plug into a wellspring of positive and replenishing energy!
Receive a clear, effective, and comprehensive road map to Awakening Your Joy Potential, and take home a guidebook to integrate everything you learn, supporting you as you continually grow!
Delight in connecting with others who are awakening the heart of happiness alongside you.
Leave feeling renewed, reconnected, empowered to replace fleeting happiness with lasting joy, and inspired about life again! The whole weekend is like setting a giant reset button, allowing you to come back home to who you really are, how you want to show up in the world, and to the kind of meaningful life you want to create!

Do I have to be UNHAPPY to attend?
No way! We have many radiant souls who have attended! Joyful people are actually the ones who are regularly doing things to inspire and replenish themselves and are the ones continually growing and learning! As you’ve probably noticed, joyful people overflow with positive energy. This is no accident or coincidence — they regularly do things to fill themselves up with it. You will likely feel validated by some of what we’ll be doing (“hey, I do that!”) and will also feel deeply inspired and illuminated by other new concepts and experiential processes uniquely designed to orient your mind, heart, body, and spirit evermore fully to joy. Plus, we have lots and lots of FUN, and you will get to meet amazing new friends!
Can I be feeling unhappy right now and attend?
Of course! You will be wholeheartedly and lovingly embraced and honored exactly as you are. And I can say with near certainty, you will feel renewed hope, lightness, and happiness when you leave Sunday evening and will re-enter the world filled up with new possibilities for your life! In fact, I offer a 100% refund for anyone who attends and doesn’t feel more joy by the time they leave!
Will you be sharing tools I can share with others (clients, students, loved ones, etc.)?
Yes, yes, and more yes! If you are a parent, teacher, practitioner, healer, therapist, or coach, I will be sharing an ABUNDANCE of concrete tools, based in Positive Psychology, for you to start implementing with clients, patients, and loved ones, helping them fulfill their own longing for more lasting happiness.
What’s the benefit of the weekend retreat, rather than an online course or book I could read?
