International author and speaker, B.Joy (Barbara) Brewster includes after her name the letters "PSoL", "SA" and "LoF". These acronyms describe who she is - a "Passionate Student of Life," "Spontaneity Addict" and "Lots of Fun" and represent what she considers her most valuable education, Life Experience.
B.Joy's life is an inspiration on many levels. Born in California, she immigrated to Australia alone in 1967. She currently has citizenship in both Australia and the USA. She has hitchhiked across continents; published three inspirational books; hosted a restaurant in Afghanistan; recovered from multiple sclerosis; and toured Russian hospitals and orphanages as a clown with doctor/clown, Patch Adams who says "The most revolutionary thing you can do to change the world is to be a happy person".
B.Joy's books include "Journey to Wholeness" which outlines her journey when diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; "Down Under All Over" which documents her enthusiasm at returning to Australia after recovering from MS and oozes with gratitude for the country, the people and the spirit of the place; and "Love or Growth; Why not Both?—A Woman's Dilemma" which speaks to the dilemma she faced in being with a wonderful husband who loved her but could not celebrate or support her passion and need for growth.
This month the Sunshine Coast is lucky to have B.Joy host two workshops, both held on Saturday 19th April at Cudgerie Homestead B&B in Cooroy. B.Joy says, "Both workshops are based around the motto that 'a merry heart doeth good like medicine'. Life is much brighter if you approach each day with a happy heart."
"If you're feeling stressed or dull, if you've forgotten how to play (or maybe never learned how), or if it's been a long time since you really laughed, come along to the morning workshop, The Power of Play (POP!). Participants will gently discover their own power to revitalise, relax and renew their sparkle, health and creativity."
"At Rambunctious Writing, the afternoon workshop, you'll reconnect with and expand your wit, whimsy, imagination and flow of ideas. Whether or not you are a writer, you'll delight in and be amazed at the power of playful writing and may even unveil some surprising personal insights. At both of the workshops you'll laugh a lot and also take home some tools to implement laughter into your everyday life."
Workshops are $50 each or attend both for $90. To book into the workshops ring Helen on 5476 7680 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
