This January, we are Giving The Process: For each of the first 30 days of the month, we’re highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to make yourself a priority in the new year—and decade. On January 31, one charmed follower will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card for Live The Process!
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—sign ups for our newsletter, follow us on IG and tell us how you’re hoping to make taking care of your physical, emotional, intellectual and/or spiritual self a priority this year—to make 2020 about self-care without guilt.
Today’s gift is a Transformative Alchemy Session with Joy Dushey
My name is: Joy Dushey.
I’m known for being: An intuitive holistic & spiritual life guide, breathwork facilitator, alchemist and an activist for deeper connection of humanity.
I'm sharing: A Transformative Alchemy Session—an exploratory talk, breathwork, crystal and sound healing session in-person in NYC or virtually through Zoom.

What inspired me to create it was: Years ago, I created something called, “The Joyful Approach,” that emerged during a great transformation in my life. I’d been suffering with grief and illness from the tragic loss of my brother. I grappled for years with sadness, depression, anxiety and PTSD, leading to an ischemic stroke when I was 29 years old and the mother of two young girls.
While recovering from the stroke, I began to question how I was living my life and realized that, until then, I’d been disconnected from truth and meaning. I was unfulfilled, escaping and numbing. I later realized that the entire process was an awakening to a holistic and spiritual path. I felt the possibility of re-birth growing in me and began the journey into deep healing and learning. I was fascinated by the miracles that quickly followed and realized that I was destined to intertwine my own growth and the sharing of my story with the world.
So, I created The Joyful Approach, which is a life system that combines the upgrading of practical daily disciplines around eating, sleeping, exercising, breathing and thinking with deeper spiritual work, addressing core values, self-love, intentionality and authenticity. The approach allows for living in true flow of life and for the unfolding of our best and highest selves.
I am an eternal seeker and earth student, learning from experts, healers and teachers along with devotion to my own practice. Today, my greatest purpose is in helping others heal, transform and expand into their full potential.
What makes it special is: By connecting to a deeper space within through The Joyful Alchemy…
We can live in an embodied way with love, Joy, and freedom.
We can live in alignment and wholeness and in who we truly are.
We can come home to our true essence.
One thing you can’t miss is: The access to new creative possibilities through connecting to your soul in a deeper way, results in magic!
Your body will thank you because: You will most likely leave feeling lighter and renewed. It’s such a great gift you can give to yourself—connecting to your soul, truth and essence.
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: When you gain access to your higher self, you’ll begin receive intuitive signals for how to care for yourself with rituals and practices that will propel you towards optimal living in higher vibrational energies.
My favorite personal short ritual for self-care in 2020 is: Gratitude practice: Five things I’m grateful for and why upon waking. Lemon Water. Journaling and reflection. A few heart openers in Asana Kirtan chanting. Going out into nature; a ritual honoring the four directions, followed by a run. This coming year, I set intentions to incorporate more collaging and ecstatic dancing and to learn to play my new shruti box.
