YOUR JOY, YOUR WAY — a 3-Month, Online Intensive starting March 2024

Are you ready to step into the most easeful, peaceful, joyful chapter of your life?

This 3-month online experience is professionally curated to orchestrate YOUR most effective path to your personal joy. I’ll help you zero in on the specific, unique-to-you obstacles that are standing between you and the bliss you’re here to experience, and I’ll customize for you a routine of simple, pleasurable practices that you can begin implementing right away.

We’ll meet in my cozy Zoom room, one-on-one for deep personal work, throughout the three months, and you’ll also have opportunities to learn and grow in online group sessions with a loving community of like-hearted joy seekers.

You’ll learn time-tested spiritual principles now backed by contemporary scientific findings, with opportunities to learn from Chris Niebauer, Ph.D. about how neuropsychology is confirming ancient practices that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle. You’ll meet with me and Chris in intimate online sessions where we’ll help you apply these principles to your unique challenges and opportunities.

All the details for this life-changing intensive are here.

The widespread anxiety, emotional lethargy, and struggle we’ve collectively begun to regard as “normal” does not have to be. Each of us has everything we need within us to live a life of joy and meaning. It’s simply about identifying our habitual patterns of thought and reactivity, and working to install new habits.

You can read my bio here, and co-facilitating with me throughout this intensive is Chris Niebauer:

Chris Niebauer earned his Ph.D. in cognitive neuropsychology, specializing in the differences between the left and right sides of the human brain and how this knowledge can be practically applied. He is the author of the bestselling book No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up to Buddhism and the workbook that followed it. A professor for 22 years who taught courses on consciousness, mindfulness, left- and right-brain differences, and artificial intelligence, he now maintains a popular YouTube channel and shares his wisdom on many podcasts, including “Buddha at the Gas Pump” and “The Chopra Well” with Deepak Chopra.


Membership in Joy School’s online community is the most powerful way to integrate and master time-tested tools for vibration elevation that dramatically improve every aspect of your life. If you’re reading Free Your Joy, it’s the ideal accompaniment — guaranteed to supercharge the practices you’re exploring! (And if you’re not a reader, that’s okay too!)

This loving community meets four times per month to ensure there’s a time that works for everyone’s schedule. Join us once per month, twice, or ideally for all four meetings — all for just $55 per month! We can’t wait to welcome you.


Lisa McCourt (me!) leads all Joy School membership meetings, along with various expert guest teachers each month. I have taught spiritual and metaphysical tools for elevating personal vibration for over two decades. I’m the Founder of Joy School and author of Free Your Joy and other joy-creating books that have sold over 9 million copies. You can read my full bio at the About tab at this website.


If you’ve been meaning to make it to a Joy School Spotlight event, THIS IS THE ONE!
Mark your calendar for February 21st and join me and Chris Niebauer Ph.D., author of No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up with Buddhism for a deep-dive discussion about your thoughts, your mind, and the exciting potential for discovering what lies beyond them.

My greatest career-joy has always been befriending authentic, soulful, wise coconspirators with the mission of upleveling love and spiritual understanding in this wacky space and time — and Chris is one of my favorite new teaching partners! (See details for our upcoming 3-month intensive above!)

Meet Joy School’s superstar guest teachers every third Wednesday of the month! Each of these phenomenal wisdom-keepers offers messages and modalities aligned with Joy School’s curriculum via our monthly online Joy School Spotlight series. You’ll not only learn their secrets for joyful living, but you’ll have ample opportunity to receive spot-coaching and personalization through the unique format of these workshops that ensures you successfully integrate the knowledge into your own one precious life!

Joy School Spotlight happens the third Wednesday of each month at 7pmET/4pmPT, and is now a complimentary monthly event for everyone! (Claim your zero-cost spot by registering below.)

The Joy School way has always meant applying the most potent spiritual wisdom, psychological nuggets, and proven strategies for joy TO YOUR OWN LIFE. Learning, listening, thinking about these principles is a fine start, but it’s always in the application that the magic happens! That’s why a generous portion of these Joy School Spotlight events is dedicated to integration. You’ll be invited to participate to whatever extent you’d like, but even if you choose to be a wallflower and just witness the spot-coaching of other participants, you’ll reap the benefit of seeing how the insights and teachings can be applied. This is the magic that shifts your energy that has the potential to dramatically rewire your default patterns of thought and behavior. I can’t wait for you to experience it.

Among other collaborations, my brilliant heart-brother and longtime teaching partner Rob Mack and I will be combining forces to bring you transformational events this year, both in person and online. Though no dates are set at the moment, we’re always adding new opportunities to serve you together.

One of my Joy Schoolers calls it “Love Squared” when Rob and I team up because we’re both really good at loving you into the fullest expression of your being. Getting to that essence of you — that aspect of who you are that is naturally joy, love, peace, and wellness — that’s what our work together is all about.
Rob is one of the most pure and love-centered teachers I’ve ever been blessed to work with and that’s why I adore collaborating with him. I like to brag on him, too, so here you go:

“Where to start? There can’t possibly be enough space available to tell you about my experience with Lisa. Having studied ‘woo woo’ for the past six years, doing affirmations, projecting positive thoughts until it hurt and never quite achieving the results I had hoped for, I became frustrated and to be honest – a bit angry at the Universe.  I finally broke and instead of my daily affirmations, I railed at God/Universe and I begged for guidance in how to manifest my desires. I have to tell you that nothing has ever changed my life the way Lisa has! Finally . . . the means to deal with negativity, something sorely lacking in all of the self-development books I had studied over the years. It was as though a dear friend had looked into my mind, my heart, my soul and knew exactly what I needed to finally manifest my dreams.”

“I highly recommend that anyone that can sign up for this awesome experience. I just finished 8 weeks with Rob and Lisa and a group of other individuals, and have signed up for this next adventure with them. The love that is shared so freely from both Rob and Lisa and the awesome coaching and knowledge was beyond fantastic! They both shared personal experiences from their heart to assist us all in becoming more conscious of our own true souls and selves. I looked so forward to those days together, that I am missing them and the other beautiful souls in the group. I am excited to be joining back in with them and with you that are blessed enough to join in this experience!”

Nan Ford

Lisa’s classes are a powerful extension of her writing where she helps us to gain an honest and holistic awareness about ourselves while guiding us to create the glorious, gutsy life that we came here to create.”

Deborah Paiva

“Lisa McCourt has a gracious, lively, fun and captivating energy. You could enjoy anything that she has to offer because of the way she presents herself and whatever she has to share. She has done her homework in the spiritual field studying with many well-known teachers. Her spirit, her genuine heart and her form of expression is well enjoyed! She is someone who you would like to meet again and again.”
