Overview of “Joy – Your most potent medicine

We are at a time of uncertainty, in the world, and in ourselves. Rates of anxiety and depression are at an all-time high on the heels of an unprecedented global pandemic. The climate is suffering, and we are feeling it daily. We are more divided in the world politically and ideologically. War rages, oppression thrives, and suffering continues. You are not broken if you feel lost, disconnected, or powerless. You are human. And you are feeling the impact of the world around you with whatever challenge is moving through your own life. If you are human, you will feel pain.

But you also have the right and capacity to feel Joy…no matter what. And not only do you have that birthright, you may even have a responsibility to seek Joy, as it is the truest Justice you may ever feel. Joy is not selfish or frivolous. Joy is your own revolution. In this course, we will learn how Joy is fundamentally different than happiness, how it is accessible to anyone regardless of trauma history, race or gender identity, or financial status, and why to access Joy, you must enter into your body.

Dr. Sethi is not only an acclaimed expert in Integrative and Mind-Body Medicine, she is a human like you who suffers daily. She is a mother to a child with a fatal illness and yet, she has found that Joy is her most potent medicine. Join her as she dives deep into fundamental concepts and practices that shifted her life from one she wanted to escape to one that she lives in the most authentic and joyful way possible.
