About

Grow More Joy is a project to find joy and connection in a world that could use a little more. Drawing from principles of mindfulness, compassion, and Nonviolent Communication, we share resources that help us understand ourselves and others more deeply.

We invite you to browse our blog, listen to our Happy Wanderers Podcast, or subscribe to our mailing list to learn more.
