Purchasing the Recording Package

Our mission is to make these teachings available to all. You can support the project by purchasing lifetime access to the Summit Recording Package. The package is available on a generosity-based sliding scale. Scholarships are available.

The recording package includes lifetime access to all Summit sessions and workshops to help you live with more love, compassion, connection and JOY, including downloadable files of video, audio, and transcripts, compatible on your phone, laptop, and tablet.

The recording package does not include access to the Mission: JOY movie.

The Global Joy Summit is a nonprofit event.

We use a sliding scale model (and offer full and partial scholarships) to make the Summit Recordings accessible to all.

The proceeds from the Recording Package help us to organize and share this free summit to hundreds of thousands of people around the globe. These funds support the ongoing nonprofit work of Mission: JOY 501(c)(3), Mind & Life Institute 501(c)(3), and The Awake Network Foundation 501(c)(3).

A portion of the proceeds will also go to support the Tibetan Children’s Village (seen in the Mission: JOY film) and the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.

When you purchase a Recording Package, you also receive a 2nd free recording package to gift to a friend!

Your friend’s package will contain all of the same benefits as yours, including lifetime access to all Summit videos and bonuses.

You can gift it to a friend right away, or wait and decide who to gift it to later on. Up to you!

Yes, the sliding scale contribution amounts are all listed and processed in US Dollars (USD). 

The currency exchange rate estimates are provided for convenience only. Your bank may charge a small fee for international transactions. Payments via credit card or PayPal are available.

Yes, we have full and partial scholarships available!

You can apply for a Full Scholarship using our Scholarship Application Form.

For partial scholarships, you can choose to contribute between $1-50 USD and receive an immediate partial scholarship without filling out the scholarship application form. Any amount you would like to contribute is welcome and will be gratefully received. Contribute to support the Summit >>
