A poem from MAfrika –

in reflection of our ONENESS

It is titled Dear Ones

and it’s for all of you


we are one

together we are


1 powerful love

1 awesome healing

1 caring crysalis

1 humankind,

1 remembering identifying mind to stillness

1 loving heart dissolving fear madness

1 growing consciousness

1 immortal soul purpose

you are, we are, they are, they were

I am



Mintyl HaXaku – (translated – I love you)


The journey has started – I’m looking for the Dear Ones who will support me with preparing

This youtube link can be put in a global context and when I do, I cry tears of joyful possibility…

yes we can

The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in KwaZulu are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in our Planet;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together, we will begin the next great chapter in Earth’s story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea – Yes. We. Can.

It’s simple these 3 words… say them , be them and create new ways of what we can again and again

Yes we can … support each other

YES WE CAN create good news

Yes We can live joyfully together



Dearest JOY SUPPORTERS, friends and family…

Most of you know for the past 8 years I’ve been committed to my charity The UPliftment Programme and sharing the healing power of JOY.  We have grown from just 2 volunteers, Care Clowning at Red Cross Children’s hospital. To over 75 volunteers nationwide – UPlifting in excess of 3500 children every month.

And right now I’m asking you to help make my Birthday Celebration – my best ever…

yay happpppyyyyy

I’m not asking for presents, sweet words or cards this year – this year I’m asking you ALL to become monthly supporters of JOY…


I am envisioning a few hundred of my nearest and dearest all making monthly contributions (the amount depends on your budget – even as little as R50 every month will make a remarkable difference to UP sustainably sharing and growing JOY!) And if you just want to make a once-off BIRTHDAY donation – that too will be greatly appreciated.

We’ve set it UP – so donating is super easy – please go to www.up.givengain.org. and set up your once off or monthly donation.

Yay precious sUPporters of JOY…

Wow this joy journey is just wonderful… everyday I am amazed at the inspired transformation happening to this planet. I live a life full of miracles and I am so excited to be part of the family of solution-orientated folk who are all taking daily actions to share possibility, grow dreams and transform our world…

As promised – here’s your monthly UPlifting episode… intended to share stories of some of these beings…
This episode is especially focused  on Dr Louise Van Rhyn – the founder of SYMPHONIA, an organisation strengthening the fabric of South African society. She is an inspired example of humanKIND, a remarkable reminder of the individual contribution we can ALL make when we choose to be of purpose and choose to live in possibility!



The UP is a monthly UPlifting programme – showcasing people on THE UP – truly  inspired, solution-orientated individuals who are transforming the planet. Proudly brought to you by The UP and myself – with our combined passion for sharing the Healing Power of JOY. “Joyful people are creative and caring people”

These UPlifting programs’ are made manifest by charitable contributions – if you would like to sUPport the growth of joy – go to www.up.givengain.org and sUPport us (with giggly gratitude)


It’s the choices we make, not the chances we take, that create our destiny

Larry Joe is an inspired example of humanKIND! A living vessel of hope and possibility…

Just 3 years ago, Larry was still a drug addict and criminal on the run from his life  the authorities. Today after handing himself into the police, choosing to take responsibility for his life – serving half of his 5plus sentence & re-connecting with his music; He is now FREE!

Larry Joe - before his release in Dec 2010

He is our chosen feature for the month of March on our online show – THE UP  – he is on The UP and an inspirational icon of our time



What is a JOY SESSION?

Joy Sessions can be tailor made and themed… they can last anything from 15minutes to a full day…

I have been officially facilitating joy for 7 years and I’ve found the swiftest ways to improve our Wellness and Uplift morale, is to inspire everyone to re-connect with their ability to play and laugh again.

A joy session is highly energetic and interactive and combines Laughter exercises with Playful games – activating the imagination and the happy hormones that physically enable a good mood. I’ve watched highly stressed adults arrive at a session cynical and unsure and within minutes I see them transformed into joyful and playful, anything is possible beings again.
