Judge your Children, Realize your Self could be the most helpful parenting course you ever take! Given that I have been a parenting educator for over 15 years, and have worked with over 135 of the world's top parenting-related experts, that's saying something! I wish I'd been able to take it a decade ago. It would have saved so much suffering, and made me so much more able to love even the times when suffering is inevitable.
Joy is a sublime facilitator. I was surprised and delighted to see that she does the Work right along side of us. That adds so much to the class. Her energy and attitude permeate the group and are instrumental in us getting so much more out of doing the Work. The experience of hearing others share their answers to the questions also deepens the inquiry immensely. Thank you sooooo much Joy! You live up to your namesake!
Joy Schultz possesses the poise, patience and wisdom of a peaceful heart. Obviously, having done her own "Work," she demonstrates experiential as well as professional knowledge, curiosity and warmth toward those she coaches with the outstanding work of Byron Katie.

Thank you so much for sharing the work of Byron Katie last night at our group meeting. Joy was amazing working with Sharon. I don’t know how you were able to get a very distressed parent to calm down and think clearly! I do understand having done a smidge of similar work, but still it was amazing to watch!
Thank you so much again!

Joy, I thank you all the time for teaching me The Work. All the time. The time and gentleness you shared with me last year has made such a difference in my life. I know I have a ways to go in learning The Work, but I'm on the path! Yey! And I am learning to be just me with my kids, modelling the same, living with all the feelings every day, and really loving what already is, in a quiet contented way. When I see myself rushing off to chase some thought or idea that pops in, it doesn't take a life time to notice it and investigate! And that is such a gift!!! I don't know but I think I would be living a very different life without the effort YOU helped me to put into loving what was in those moments last year.
"A" had a huge breakthrough -- thanks so much!!!
He is still singing your praises and is so freed up!!!
Hugs and much love,
It's amazing I can do the work with you on something there has been so very much confusion, shame, guilt, and anger and finish the session feeling so much more wholesome and incredibly a place where there might needn't be any judgment. Thankful even for the hurting that offers the incentive and inspiration to find the way through.
Dearest Joy, This was such a deep and great help that you gave me. This morning i spoke with a dear work friend, and what I told her about being locked into that bedroom brought her to seeing how she locked her son out of the apartment, into the corridor, when she was just as helplessly angry at her four year old son. It encouraged her very much to start talking and working with her son, who is 12 or 13 now. So the healing, you helped me to find, will be useful for this boy as well! Isn´t that a blessing!
(From the friend: I feel very grateful too... I talked to N about all that and asked him for forgiveness and I saw in his eyes comfort and relief... And I told him that he could talk whenever he wanted about this story and all the emotions he has had. And I also told him about you and your similar story and that you felt very close to him and you are with him. He looked so touched and valued. So I feel so infinitly grateful about our sharing...bringing so much peace, love always.)
I was lucky to get you as a helpline facilitator both times when I was so much into this story. It was the best help it could be!! May the friendly Universe guard you and help you just as amply!!
Joy is absolutely wonderful...very intuitive. I feel more comfortable applying "the work" to my life...putting the questions into action.
Joy is a dear friend, and a wonderful facilitator. She has embraced this work and has been extremely helpful to me in the past. I look forward to meeting with others as we explore together.
Thanks so much again for facilitating me the other day. Wow. That was such an important one, a huge one, and still reverberating. So much to learn from that one. Thanks for your help in getting deeper and deeper with it and for helping me be more honest with myself than I ever could have done alone.
I have called the work help line and you have assisted me. I was going through a very rough patch and with your help I finally gave in my resignation letter and quit my job and I am being kinder to myself. I still have some work to do and I am getting better at it.
I just wanted to share my experience of doing the work with you. When I called the helpline the way you listened to me and held that space for me I thought to myself who is this beautiful woman? I felt like I was being held and the way you said shhhhh..to me when I was crying was quite a beautiful experience. I never received that from my mother and now when I cry I say that to me..shhhhh and it feels comforting. When I called I could tell how much you love doing the work and how you have done YOUR work which allows me to do mine. And to tell you the truth I called twice the helpline or maybe more hoping you would be at the other end.
I read your short bio on the certified facilitators section and I understood. We have so much in common. I felt touched reading it too.
Thank you for holding that space for me and for being an inspiration for me. Talking to you inspired to me to be a better person for myself and for those around me as well and to hold that space for others as you did for me.
You have touched my heart and are a true inspiration for me :)
I think your name says it all "Joy"
Love and blessings to you!
(After doing The Work with you...) the time with my brother was awesome. It was truly a miracle and I can't tell you how much I appreciate you! I could not seem to let myself see that truth alone. I love you!
Again, thank you so much for gently holding and supporting me in the space! I really appreciate that you helped ground me and keep me in the Work! I look forward to the next time!
Much love and appreciation,
Joy was open and humble and helpful.
Joy was very kind and helpful.
Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and sharing your teachings and learnings with me. You are so special...I knew that when I originally took your class at CFU. I am amazed at the amount of pain you have experienced...losing your son...how strong you are and able to guide others to their truth and healing. It seems you turned your pain into a gift, and then you share the gift with others. I'm just getting started on this journey, changing.... as silly as it sounds, I think I was supposed to meet you! I so look forward to learning more with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Blessed be. This moment is all there ever was. And it is unconditional love. It is God. Holding us dearly. Waiting for us to return our Mind to him. Thank You Joy Schultz For holding me so sweetly in that facilitation. No words can express the gratitude that I have for you.
I was reading your blogs, and I had to stop and let you know that you are one of the most gifted writers and poets that I have EVER read! I really mean it. You have a genius as a writer and I wanted to suggest that you compiled your writings into a book as soon as possible. I would be the first to buy it, and I am SURE that many others would too. Your writings inspire me and BLOW my mind!!
I have been meaning to tell you this for a long time and thought that I would stop everything that I was doing to let you know how I feel about your writings and about you. I love you.

"Joy, I can't thank you enough for your email. You have no idea how much it helped me. I really sat with it for the whole day yesterday, because I was getting so many insights on that and I got very excited about it.
Thank you so much for your kindness.
It really felt amazing to open up to someone, even through here, it is a topic that I don't find it easy to open up to anyone..
I wish you a wonderful day and a happy new year!
And again, thank you so much, i really appreciate your help!"
