MEET JOY GARDNER
Joy Gardner is a true Shamaness, a world expert in a rare mind-body technology that eradicates, transforms and integrates old memories, experiences, and habit patterns. She uses esoteric and leading-edge techniques to effectively and rapidly clear the individual through her own form of modern-day alchemy. — Don Altfeld, MD
” From Joy: I love to lift people up. I have the Gift to see you in the Fullness of your Being. If you allow me, I can Guide you toward the fulfillment that the Universe wants for you—and from you. I can help you to do what you most deeply long to do. That is my greatest joy.
This is how three of my graduate students described my teaching style:
“Joy’s teaching style is revolutionary. Rather than a linear “teacher-student” relationship, her paradigm is circular. She shares her whole self and makes it clear that the distinction between teacher and student is largely artificial. She allows herself to be a student as well as a teacher, and creates a circular flow of energy that allows for maximal growth for all involved. She models the ideal teacher so subtly; it is a tribute to her open, honest, egoless, gentle, loving style of guidance. Joy is truly a Master Teacher.”
—Kate DeVore, Voice and Speech Therapist, Harvard affiliate
“When Joy first asked if I’d like to write about her teaching style, I burst out laughing! I thought, ‘I can’t write about Joy’s teaching style– she HAS no teaching style!–Joy just IS…and people come (somehow always the right people)…and life happens (but somehow in bolder, more pointed strokes and more brilliant colors than in our usual existence)…and we go home changed into brighter and truer versions of our real selves…and not so much alone as we felt when we started the process!’
“Actually, Joy knows tons of stuff, and I’ve probably learned more from her than I have from anyone on this planet. But it is not Joy’s style to recite copious facts to her students, as happened so frequently in my 16-plus years of formal education. Though Joy’s books form a basic intellectual background, the teaching method she uses is loving, intuitive, and experiential.”
“Joy does not say, ‘You must use this particular stone or tone to remedy this condition.’ She is much more likely to send us off with some inspiring ideas, to practice on each other, to access our own inner wisdom, until we see for ourselves what fits the situation. One of Joy’s gifts is her uncanny knack for opening her mouth (this may be in a lecture, but could just as well be while walking to the beach), and a word, or a phrase, or a sentence, or a story pops out, seemingly innocuous and inconsequential, yet it lodges in your soul, like a precious nugget of gold, which may later explode into a life-changing cataclysm. Or it may quietly nudge and nag, inviting you to see or do something that will help you to see a person in your life differently, to release a long-held limiting belief, to bring to the surface an old wound that needs healing, or even to tap more deeply into your own wellspring of joy and love.”
“Joy refers in her autobiography to being privileged to apprentice with teachers who were ‘very real’ and who ‘walked their talk.’ Joy has in fact become one of those teachers.”
— Karen McDaniel, Research Librarian
“ When I’m in your presence, I do not trivialize myself.”
— Luce Myers, Educator

In 2005, Ms. Gardner participated in a study at North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea on the Island of Hawaii, conducted by Jeanne Achterberg, Ph.D., author of Imagery in Healing: Shamanism and Modern Medicine. Using a state-of-the-art functional MRI, Achterberg demonstrated that intentional sounds and energy sent by Ms. Gardner, at randomly designated times, to a recipient in the MRI, registered definitively at specific centers of the brain (see below). Red areas are positive activation, blue are negative (see The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Volume 11, Number 6, 2005, pp. 965-971).
Joy Gardner has been a member of the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM), a professional member of the American Herbalists Guild, and she helped start a Bioneers group in Asheville, NC.
