For the Joy-Based Living Beginner’s Guide E-Book / Basecamp Community:

I believe I have received more thoughtful comments on my first post [in our Basecamp community] as with all of my Facebook posts for the last five years put together.  I am deeply touched.
– Scott MacLeod, Germany

A few weeks later, I was surprised to receive this note from Scott:

Hello Debbie,
 
Thank you for your course and community.  I have lived my life as a wavelength that I thought till now no one else could see or hear. 
Sometimes just a little clap button will make my day.  I am seen.  I am heard.
 
I love the way the comments on each lesson are like planting a seed. First response. Then a few weeks later another.  Then again as the next one reads through and writes, then again.
 
So much positive feedback and holding space, and no advice!
 
Best group I have ever belonged to.
 
Thank you,
Scott

 

JBL has given me more JOY than I could have ever imagined. I initially believed I was already living a joyful world. Boy was I ever so wrong. My world was not entirely without joy. The joy I had in my life was not as powerful when I jumped into JBL. I can truly say I am now empowered to keep and honor my self-commitment. My goal is to embark on a new journey by bringing others JBL so they too can learn the language of Joy. I am more confident and have trust with myself. I am now able to listen to my embodiment on a much deeper level. I am deeply thankful and grateful for learning the language of JBL and finding a tribe that is of equal values. I have learned the language that has helped me change my vibe, and now I have found home within my tribe!
I am honoring me! I am committed to honoring me, myself, and I in a very empowering way! My anxiety has minimized to practically non-existent. That is huge to have anxiety diminish so quickly since it’s had a hold of my life for many years. I am able to see things clearly as well as being able to listen to my inner self with stellar visionary! Visions are starting to manifest into reality! I was not aware of how heavy my heart was prior to JBL. After going through JBL and being a part of this amazing tribe, my heart is lighter and free of walls. I have noticed my ability to sleep more soundly at night. My visions are flooded with eagerness and opportunities like never before! I will be celebrated by going on a hike to the Queens Park Rose Garden to be surrounded by nature and beauty. Ironically Monday is a holiday to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Birthday! I can’t wait to take in the sounds and smells of the roses, as well as taking some amazing pictures! 
Thank you tribe peeps for being who you are and being so amazing with welcoming me in as one of your own. Being able to share on an open platform as this is very humbling and touching.
Thank you, Debbie, for creating not just the JBL Beginner’s Guide e-book and teaching the language to maintain the joy in everybody’s world, but creating an outlet for a tribal communication such as this. Being able to communicate in such a unique technical way for today’s world is remarkable. Having the language to be empowered with Joy is beyond making a desired dream come true. Thank you so, so very much for all that you are and all that you do!
– Laura Shields, British Columbia, 

I LOVE it!! I think this is so great for this time in our culture! I think you have a great structure down, and it’s clearly communicated for everyone to understand. I love the art, and I completely agree with all of these tools for joy!!!

I just finished getting my “introduction” (courtesy of the ever-more-amazing Debbie Happy Cohen) to this ‘branch of the JBL river”… and I am blown away at what has been set up here! In my eyes, it’s like, here’s the makings of a doctor’s degree program in Humane Communication for the Age of Technology right here, staring us in the face!

Testimonials for the original, personalized Fairy Tales
(www.getfairytales.com):

I felt so supremely seen, known, heard and witnessed by you surprising me with a Story that you wrote especially for Me. It was deeply moving at a soul level, to listen to you reading aloud to me, a story that I knew was for me. That was a new experience and a first – something being written expressly for me, in my honor. You were clearly inspired and guided in writing it, as it reflected core truths – subtle and more evident – that you held up to me as a mirror to fully express and share – including my magic and power to inspire, transform, create well-being, cultivate relationships that matter, and re-weave community. When one of our mutual friends told me that she had listened to and loved “my” story about Inka, I felt the specialness of this even more.
When I was growing up, I loved fairy tales. In my living room are several of my exquisitely illustrated most prized collections from my childhood. You connected me with that happiness, and also the magic of knowing that now others will have the joy of reading “my” fairytale, All For Inka. I can’t wait until you call and surprise me again, with another story you write, just for Me.
~ Danila Szekely, Boston

Dearest Debbie,
I was blown away and in tears when hearing the story of Stella the Bluebird.
What a surprise! What a precious gift!
Your Magic Tale has brought love and warmth to a cold and lonely place, hidden in the darker caverns of my childhood. Your Nurturing Magic Branches extended out to me, read me at my core and tenderly embraced a speechless little Me. Naming things you couldn´t have possibly known, your Fairy Tale has created a healing field for me and opened pathways to express the love i was told i didn´t have.
Better than 10 years of therapy!!!
What exquisite Life Magic gifting me with You and your Magic Stories showing up in my life! I feel blessed.”

~ Natascha Jean-Marain, Vienna, Austria

As adults, we need fairy tales. Your fairy tales have ignited a magical fire in my imagination, a fire which hasn’t been lit for a long time . . . or, it is as though my imagination had become black and white… and your stories have brought the color back! I feel the return of innocence and the magic of a child opening a present!” 

~ Paula Hulley, Artist, Balgowan, South Africa

“These bedtime stories are for busy parents, JUST PRESS PLAY!
They are for the inner child in all of us, and for children of all ages.”

“At
Get Fairy Tales, there is a story for every inner child.”
~ Rev. Kelley Springer, Talent, Oregon

“Dearest Debbie,
Wow what a delightful surprise you embedded in Lila the Lemur’s story! 
Duncan and I settled in to listen to it last night as part of his bedtime routine and then we heard my name – he giggled and wriggled with delight as you repeated it in the story.  Thank you. I am honoured that I share my name with Lila’s little sister!! I need to listen again and again but wanted to make sure I thanked you right away. 
Thank you for embracing me in so many ways! 
Love,
Milisa”
~ Milisa Burns, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Anonymous Testimonials from the 2-hour workshop
Joy-Based Living: Vulture Culture:
Spring cleaning for your mind and your life

Hi Debbie… it was an honor to participate in the workshop. I felt that I did some good “work” there and have continued. [A friend who also attended the workshop] and I went to lunch the next day and I caught myself shaming her about food… what’s that all about? I immediately told her she didn’t have to take that and apologized for it. She didn’t recognize it at first as shaming, but then realized and we both had a good talk about it and the workshop. I like it when I recognize my foibles before others. Then I can stop the unhealthy behavior before it lands on someone else. I also see that I do a lot of shaming of myself around food. So, good work… Thank you for presenting this in such a helpful way. I would love to go further with it. I understand you may be offering VC 1.2. I want to come to that! YAY! Debbie!

I learned that my doubts and insecurities live only in my limiting thoughts. Replace with unlimited.

I am in the process of cleansing.

My magic rock.

That you should always honor yourself.

I need to work on changing the stories I tell myself.

Standing in my power is an inside job – once accomplished, I will attract other people who will honor me…

Thank you for sharing this information in the community you live in. Takes courage. I applaud you. I celebrate you! Community – I ache to have a group that practices and supports well-being and to practice language and healing fields together

Magic Rock affirmation. Inspired.

Hope. Motivation.

The trash in my life.

It’s okay to clean my life, stay away from people who don’t bring me joy.

I feel lighter and on the right path.

I am not standing alone!

Ultimately, you reminded me, us–the group–that standing for yourself & others, and gathering together a tribe of those who’ll do the same for themselves and you… well, that’s really all you need…Or in other words… ‘Amore Solum Opus Est’… ‘All you need is love.’
