Event description


3 Part Telecourse

Learning + Expanding + Shifting

The Joy Diet book study is based on the extensive research and teachings of Dr. Martha Beck.


There are contradictory messages we receive daily. The messages suggest we have to deprive ourselves of daily sustenance in order to be worthy. We have to mold, squeeze, and reshape ourselves to fit in with what it means to be normal and valued. Dieting, as a way to keep ourselves in check, small, and outwardly acceptable, is a societally approved method of connecting our worth with how we look to others.


During this book study, we will explore Dr. Beck’s principles of using daily joy as a conduit to finding the happiness we see, merging work/life harmony, and giving ourselves permission to create our personalize guiding values.


Kanesha, an author, veteran educator, and certified life coach through Dr. Beck’s training program, will lead book study participants in a deep, analytical, and skill based discussion using the tools and principles presented in The Joy Diet.

Each participant will receive The Joy Diet toolkit they can download and use while they read the book.

The book study meetings will take place via teleconference. This means each participant will dial in at the scheduled time and participate in the 3 discussions. You have the flexibility of dialing in from many locations around the world. All you need is a telephone.

Throughout the book study, Kanesha will support participants in reflecting on areas of their lives they find unsatisfactory. Using The Joy Diet’s key concepts, participants will participate in challenges that help them take necessary steps to have more joy, on a daily basis, in their lives.
