In 2016, a group of friends challenged themselves to create a community focused on Joy. Gatherings of Joy is designed for participants to learn, cultivate and share joy, foster greater inner well being, and bring the world closer together.
Set against the backdrop of breathtaking locations around the world, Gatherings for Joy is a dedicated multi-day retreat for mindful participants to begin their journey of self-discovery and connect with the joyful being within. Each day centers around reflection, physical activity, group discussion, connections, talks and a multitude of thoughtful experiences.
Our goal is to inspire connections that lead participants to serve humanity in new ways grounded in the eight Pillars of Joy - perspective, humility, humor, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion and generosity.
