The Joy Revolution


the evolution of revolution
We teach change-agents, luminaries, and other do-gooders how to create positive social impact and lasting change through an expanded experience of joy.

When it comes to creating significant personal and social change, there’s no denying the power of revolution. 

Here’s the thing about revolutions …

They’re long. Difficult

They’re bloody. Painful.
And won at a cost. We all pay the price. 

But they can also be joyful.  

Any social justice fighter worth their weight knows at the end of a revolution won there is joy. Joy is the desired outcome. It’s the purpose. The point. It’s the period at the end of the sentence. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

But what if instead of joy being the end of struggle and strife, what if instead of it seeing it as the resolution, you could empower joy to fuel and nourish your revolution? 

What if joy could be YOUR revolution?



Inspiring social change through joy,
isn't that a bit . . . naive?

Yes . . . if your vision of joy is clicking your heels and thinking happy thoughts.

Our understanding of joy, here at The Revolution,  is a little more complex. 

Joy is a visceral experience that roots deep within each and every one of us. It grows when you create life.  It nourishes momentum in the face of fear.  It encourages self-learning and progress regardless of  doubt.  It doesn’t feel compelled to dismiss “the other” to prove its power. It’s self-empowered. It embraces difference with civility. Joy works to understand the status quo without submitting to its reality.

This program changed the way I approached EVERYTHING in my life and business. I walked away with a lot of ideas for materials I create and share with clients. I was able to develop and create my OWN message that I wanted to share with the world. It was so unexpected — being able to take joys in my life and create with them in a way I hadn’t done before.

spring cohort

The Joy Revolution Spring Cohort is 16-week, multi-disciplinary digital program, and group coaching community that helps coaches, entrepreneurs, and social justice warriors to define, build, and sustain social movements and personal revolution through the lens of joy.  

Following a one-week orientation, our core curriculum branches into three key phases: create, develop, inspire.

Through each phase of the course, students develop a foundational understanding of various positive psychology principles and philosophies, uncovering radical personal transformation while simultaneously creating a unique framework they can use to lead change and create their own communities.

When I joined I knew I would learn something that would benefit my business but I had no idea how deeply this group and this content would be integrated into my life! 

I was blown away by the content that was being shared. The depth of the knowledge, the conversations; there were so many “ah-ha” moments we experienced as a community. It
 changed the way I viewed the world from the inside out.
