“Joyce was my coach and mentor for 10 years. Most of the time it was intensive daily assignments, the ones that make you go “oh sh*t” and at the same time laugh and know it’s going to change your life. The more I worked, the more Joyce was always there to coach me on a higher level.
Joyce is a body-mind-spirit-soul kind of coach. As a master journaler and writer, she noticed everything from the words I used, when the email was sent, what I was feeling when I wrote it… and yes, she called me on it every single time. From this, I learned and now know that – “it really all matters” (one of her mantras).
I embraced writing as a way to excavate what needed fresh air inside of me, as well as to capture the joy in my life. I use many methods from her books and as a Chinese medicine healer, I assist patients in journaling their way to health. Today I also lead a Journaling group, as written in “Journaling for Joy”, and the work we do there echoes in all areas of my life.
Joyce taught and modeled to me what it was to live a congruent life, and what “living in Truth” meant. Every email and phone call, reminded me to be totally honest and 100% clear. Only then was I able to act from love and the highest good for all concerned. One of the biggest lessons for me was to learn not to take myself so seriously, and to laugh at myself, as often as possible!!!
Working with Joyce wasn’t easy. Most of the time it was really hard, because she pushes you like an Olympic coach. And I would do it all over again.
Thanks a lot Joyce, for the ride of “getting to know, choose, love and live my dream”! I’m doing it, right now!”

“Dear Joyce Chapman! Where do I begin? I would like to tell the world about Joyce Chapman! She changed my life through her powerful journaling process. Her process is different from any others that I had encountered and took me where I needed to go. She is a masterful writer and “Dream Coach.” Joyce intuitively gets to the heart of things with everyone she encounters I know many people who’s lives she has turned around. Joyce is a polished presenter, and because of her positive energy, vast knowledge, years of experience, and sense of humor, she connects immediately with any audience she works with. In addition, Joyce walks her talk and she’s lots of fun to be around! In this crazy economic climate, we all need help getting to what is important and moving forward.”

“I chose to work with Joyce to become more mindful, more joyful, and more proactive…and the gains have been tremendous. I have more energy, more serenity; more direction…. and less weight—imagine that!”

“I am a recovering workaholic on a journey of self-discovery, guided by the work and teachings of Joyce Chapman. Twenty-five years as a professional fundraiser and almost a decade in broadcasting did not prepare me for my seventh decade as well as Joyce has.
Joyce Chapman has brought Dream Magic into my home many times, for many years. My own life, that of my daughter, and many of my friends have been touched and guided into amazing new arenas because of Joyce’s incredible skills and her passion for her work. She is a gift of love in my life.”
Phyllis A. Allen, Professional Fundraiser
“My dream when I bought Joyce’s book, Live Your Dream:Discover and Achieve Your Life Purpose, was to be a published author. I didn’t realize the exercises in the book would focus my attention on EVERY aspect of my life and make them ALL better, but it did. And my dream? My seventh published novel is due out in three months!”

“As for a quote about the impact of your life-changing books, I can honestly say that it’s you who have influenced me directly and who you are is in your books. The books encouraged me, as did you, to become the best person I can be. I am now living a life that is full of joy and friendship I see myself differently, as a person of value who has a great deal to offer others. The books are supports for change and growth in an upward and onward direction. Above all, living your dreams doesn’t seem like a revolutionary message, but for most people it is. Both of us know what it’s like to forget who we are. Joyce Chapman is the embodiment of radiant energy and positive thinking that we all should recognize is in each and everyone of us.”
Minerva Neiditz, Author

“Attending Joyce’s journaling classes during a huge transition in my life years ago was a pivotal point in helping me clarify who I was and what were my dreams I was amazed at how many dreams I had been living that were not my own, or I had long ago discarded and yet they were still impacting my daily decisions I found support, encouragement, inspiration and tons of Joy in every class Not long ago I ran across a journal letter I had written to myself 10 years previously to be read 10 years in the future The moment and the reason for the letter flooded back to me and the wish from my past self to my future self to live my own dream had come true. Thanks Joyce!”

“I came to Joyce looking for help completing my goal of writing a book.
Joyce’s straightforward and engaging approach sprinkled with timeless wisdom helped me to stay focused and finish my book. I would recommend Joyce to anyone seeking a coach who is inspiring, intuitive and results oriented! “

Trained as a social worker, I have helped a lot of people. That training however has not always provided me with the best “self ” help. Sometimes, lost in other people’s problems, I have dropped my dream. I met Joyce at one of those crossroad times in life when joy seemed overwhelmed by confusion and sadness. The first time I ever Journaled For Joy in a group with her, I knew my life would never be the same. She reintroduced me to myself and the magic inside. Then, with fellow dreamers through her Live Your Dream group I found the kind of support and inspiration I needed to move out of my uncomfortable comfort zone. I left a no longer fulfilling job and embarked on new adventures. My umbrella dream,” to be a channel for the light, with words both written and spoken” keeps me growing. As I continue to remap my dream steps, Joyce continues to hold, support and coach the movement of that magic inside me out into the world.
She once said I remind her of a child who excitedly runs onstage to perform, then sees all those people and runs off again. I don’t think I’m the only dreamer like that. I know others whose dreams sometimes outrun their energy when those voices of ” you’ll never get there” or “who do you think you are?” attack them. Those voices that start out external and become internal. Through Joyce I have learned the value of seeking new voices out in the world, voices that energize rather than enervate my dream and me. . Internalized now is the awareness that Joyce holds my dream and her voice leads a dream team moving me forward with words like ” you are a writer,” ” you can do dream.” What a gift! Someone to hold my dream even when I fear I may fumble it! Joyce and her work have truly changed my life and expanded my dream. It now includes activating dream support and journaling groups in the San Diego area so even more people can activate and realize their dreams with the excellent tools Joyce has created.

I have been working with Joyce for about 25 years now!
She has been the single most positive life changing influence in my life.
We’ve worked together in groups, one on one, by mail, phone and E-mail—All Powerful!
She is skilled and intuitive. She hears way beyond the words I speak and gets right to the heart of the matter.
Some of the biggest things I’ve learned from Joyce are:
- Come from choice (Not just my history—not just reaction) there is such freedom and power in that.
- Dream big, and then go bigger. Believe it. Stay with it. Live it!
- Act as if—You are living your dream, you have what you want, you are who you desire to be and –so on…
- Do not settle! That’s a big one!!
- Believe in myself, be kind to myself, and respect myself.
I find my dream changes as my life evolves. 25 years ago it was to have inner peace. Working with Joyce I was soon living that and moved on to a bigger dream.
Always evolving—I LOVE that!
Joyce was with me each step of the way, coaching, suggesting, encouraging, and caring. Joyce also created a safe place for me to be totally honest and go beyond my comfort level. I trust her completely and that is most important to me.
I have so much respect and appreciation for Joyce. Because of her my life is better, happier and more successful. I worked hard…not always pretty, not always easy and ALWAYS worth it!”
