The JOYBROKER Facebook page is a resource for consistently new, original material. NO stock photos, recycled art or quotes a zillion others have seen - Laurie uses her own photography, artwork and original writing to create this ongoing body of work.
Together we are growing a global audience for practical compassion and tangible JOY. LIKE the page and tell your friends about us!
"People never change because they're under threat or under duress. Never. They change because they see something that makes their life seem valuable enough to start moving toward a life worth living." --Robert Downey, Jr.
"Fear is the number-one emotion that we're spending tremendous amounts of brainpower to cover up." --Jodie Foster
"There is nothing simple or easy about becoming a congruent human being.
Yet, accomplishing inner congruence is the jewel around which spins all
the other goals we associate with the reasons we pursue a spiritual
path. You cannot be truly healthy if you are out of alignment; you
cannot be truly honest with yourself or others if your head and heart
exist as two separate forces within you; you cannot ever know what the
fulfilled life is about if you are always compromising your intuition
and inner guidance for fear of the consequences; you can never consider
yourself a truly honest person if you live a life of continual
compromise and self-betrayal. Nor can you fully heal when you fear truth
"If I have an audience, it's a gift. If you look out and the lights come up - to see that many people agreeing on something - I just find it so powerful. What happens when so many people agree on something? Can we take this beyond the parking lot when we leave tonight?" -- Eddie Vedder
