About The Teacher
Joy began her discovery of spiritual practice while a university student living in a Transcendental Meditation community. Soon after feeling an inner call to move from the Midwest to California, she was introduced to the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. She has been a meditator for over 25 years.
Joy is a Certified Ananda Meditation teacher living at the Center at Ananda Laurelwood. She teaches classes in How to Meditate, leads Guided Meditation practice, and offers Spiritual Counseling at the retreat. Her goal is to focus on offering meditation to those residing in assisted living facilities, senior centers, and retirement communities.
Having been a teacher and tutor for many years, Joy loves supporting people in their inner growth.
