The Joy of Movement: Enjoyed Kelly’s talk. Some useful nuggets! However, I thought it was about physical movement.
Thank you, both! I enjoyed the Joy moves dancing to Pharrell and then Bruno Mars!
Much appreciation Anna!
Love the Joy Moves! Thank you Kelly!
To feel joy and difficulty simultaneously was a new experience just now. It somehow made the joy so genuine and sweet.Thank you Kelly. And Shankar, thank you for making it possible to experience this session as a conversation.
Absolutely Janet. Enjoy the rest of the summit!
This conversation resonates so much in me. Thank you 🙏
Thank you so much Rachelle for tuning in!
Thank you ! This is inspiring and encouraging for all. What a blessing you are.
Joy is an energy a very positive energy almost tangible which heal us always thanks for this beautiful sessions
I have been practicing Five Rhythms dance meditation throughout the pandemic, which has kept me grounded and sane. I think dance is a great way to be in the body and get out of the head. I am now very curious to read Kelley’s books. Thank you for this conversation.
I loved the Five Rhythms workshop I did with Toni Bergens!
I enjoyed the discussion and, of course, Kelly’s suggestions for learning to create joy at any time.
I so recommend to do all the joy moves to the song I’m Happy by Pharrell Williams. It is pure joy. Love the energy of Kelly and Shankari.
That’s my go to joy song too!
Loved her talk …Thanks
Can’t wait to try Joy Moves in my classroom of grade 2 and 3 children as part of our exploration into developing well being! Thank you for sharing this seed of positivity.
Great talk! I’d love to read the research Kelly mentions regarding empathy as the single trait that predicts the “first person on the dance floor”. Thank you!!!
Lena be sure to check her website for more details and you can probably catch her on Instagram in her comments section too.
Thank you so much ! To me the app or video from the game “Just Dance” is helpful cause I’m not used to dance
Love this. Thanks so much Kelly. Joy Moves for everyone!
Really loved the point Kelly makes at the end re the question of feeling guilt if you want to choose joy. As she says, how can we expect to help others find joy in their lives if we make rules that don’t allow us to do that for ourselves. Yes indeed, trust what you love! Trust love.
Yeah dancing ot loose baby. I love to dance.
My heart is filled with joy from having experienced this conversation. All the concepts resonate so powerfully for me–and the joy movement exercises are so very wonderful==thank you so much! I am quite ill right now and movement is not easy for me. However, I followed along as best I could making small movements and bounces and sways. I even did small poses and “threw some confetti!” It really helped!! Thank you *so* much!!
Great talk! Thanks Kelly for this conversation. Will go to your website for more.
Loved your conversation! Just danced around my office to Chaka Khan… feelin’ the joy!
Thank you for this presentation. I have started doing Qigong every morning at sunrise and have had spectacular results with how I am experiencing my day today activities. I mean it’s day and night and watching this presentation I thought wow for 45 minutes I’m doing joy moves. I’m bouncing for 5 minutes reaching and making big space tapping to beats smiling reaching to the sky opening my arms wide. Smiling! Thank you for sharing this information. For some people they can’t participate in an experience that they don’t think is validated. I think sharing this information gets people to feel comfortable that they can buy into different activities and be open to getting those positive results.
Wonderful conversation! You two really embody joy. So many great tips to take away. I specially like the idea of “sustainable energy.” Thank you!
we can give us the opportunity to feel joy anytime we want.Thanks Kelly!!!
Love this! Joy almost always involves movement for me. Do you know Let Your Yoga Sanxe with positive psychologist Megha? It’s something special!
Great to ‘do Joy’. Important to understand that our thoughts and moods are connected to our physical bodies, and I feel that in modern we don’t move enough.
I got joy from watching Kelly’s joy of seeing Shankari so much enjoying doing Kelly’s dance moves which made me want to do the joy moves too – which brought me more joy!
you both walked the talk: emphatic joy, collective joy, joy from moving
thank you both so much – you embodied and made real the great ideas from this great forum Kelly’s wisdom and generosity; Shankari’s genuineness, openness and warmth
enjoyed the confetti movement and taking space, will try the end of life gratitude meditaion
Made HUGE difference in my life, Kelly!!! Used it today at McDonalds to celebrate new choc soft-serve ice cream… felt soooo good! I was neaar euphoria!
Lovely exercise and so easy to bring in to our lives Take up space, Throw confetti Sway Shaking yes they all resonate with creative dance that I normally attend Trust what you love YEEEEEES
Thank you kelly you are a generous gift to those of us who can hear you
Thanks Kelly and Shankari. Loved it.
This was one of the best sessions yet!
Que delícia de conversa… Essa partilha de experiências , sensações e emoções foi maravilhosa. Me vi dançando e cantarolando com muita leveza e alegria. Uau… pequenos gestos…. grandes intenções. Ah quanta amorosidade e partilha do amor genuíno e coletivo. Gratidão!!! Gratidão!!!
Great!!! I ‘ll try the movements
What a joyful conversation! I enjoyed everything you shared… Much love & gratitude. Namasté!
I am constantly meeting people in “it’s a small world” situations. I wondered, when starting to listen to your presentation, if Jane was related to you. She was the Keynote speaker at a college counselor national conference that I attended 12-15 years ago. I love the enthusiasm and joy that both you and Jane bring to your fields of expertise! What are the chances that I would hear both of you speak under such different circumstances? It brings me joy to realize that our world really is small!
Kelly rocks! Great session. Wonderful practical suggestions and great insights. Thank you also to Shankari!
I am first one up often at live music concerts or at kareoke dancing. I live in Vancouver BC Canada 🇨🇦
