Book Testimonials

Joy Rains has a gift. A gift for explaining abstract concepts like meditation through clever analogies and metaphors. FOR THE FIRST TIME in my hectic, harried life I actually UNDERSTAND how meditation is supposed to work and WHY I should give it a TRY! This book is fabulously basic yet beautifully profound. I was skeptical that I could learn something like meditation by reading about it. I thought surely I’d need a guru, a sage, to meet with me in person and show me the way. WRONG! Joy IS that person, one of the most sought-after meditation coaches in the nation’s capital… now available to YOU and ME! Read Meditation Illuminated and let her guide you –with wisdom and humor– toward a less cluttered, chaotic mind.

Programs and Events Testimonials

Joy is a teacher who really makes you think in new ways. She led a 3-part class on Mindfulness for Sales Professionals at my office. I was skeptical that I would be able to meditate at all, and I had no idea what mindfulness is or how it might help me, but her clear explanations and examples showed me how useful these techniques can be in my interactions with clients and in other parts of my life. Her books are excellent too. She would make a fabulous keynote speaker at any meeting of sales professionals, and her classes are very worthwhile. I highly recommend Joy.

Joy’s mindful sales training program was great. The time flew by in each of the four sessions. I especially liked her service-oriented approach to selling and the mindful listening exercises she had us do. She also taught my reps a lot of different ways to reduce stress and stay positive. I was so impressed with Joy’s program, that I’m planning on having her back for more training.

Joy’s program got right to the heart of the matter: how to really FOCUS on the customer.  My sales team learned practical techniques to stay focused, positive, and motivated in their day-to-day sales activities. As a bonus, this interactive program was perfect for team-building. Highly recommended!

Your presentation at our dinner meeting last month was so enthusiastically received that I want to take this opportunity to thank you. Our group was delighted to participate in this straightforward, dynamic presentation. The agents gained so much useable information in a short period of time, and they were inspired by what they heard and learned. I was surprised at how quickly the hour went by. I’m sure we’ll be welcoming you back as our keynote speaker in the future.

I had the pleasure of taking Joy’s three-day mindfulness training sessions and it was an excellent experience. The sessions were helpful in understanding the importance of meditation, both in business and every day life. Joy passed along tips on different meditation methods which I’ve already started putting to good use! Her friendly and inviting manner helped to make the class very interactive and fun. Highly recommended!

Joy’s sales seminar was a breath of fresh air. As a solopreneur, I have to sell, and it scared me. Her techniques are laid back and doable for me. I don’t have to have a personality transplant to succeed. I made more sales in the week after her seminar than I had in the previous month.

Joy was the keynote speaker at our hospital for Nurses’s week in May, 2017 and 102 Nurses attended the event. Joy captured the full attention of every nurse in the room as she guided us through a mindful meditation exercise. Weeks later, we are still talking about Joy and how she inspired us to all to calm our busy minds through the power of meditation. It really works. Thanks Joy!!!

Joy drove home her messages in many creative ways, with comfortable group interaction activities. We were all enthusiastically engaged in the challenge of mindful listening. We were able to create our own affirmations, leading us to our personal and business goals. Joy’s training is extremely valuable. Our group enthusiastically agreed that it was a privilege to be the recipient of her teachings.
