new ePlayshop dedicated to JOY–YOURS

dear ones,

I’m super excited! I have been very busy preparing a new Joyfuelled-adventure dedicated to activating our JOY through lots of 15-minute bursts of creative expressive heART projects!  Drumroll….

Registration is now open for JOYFUEL HEARTS–
a MONTH-LONG ePlayshop dedicated to
JOY through creative art play!

  • Beginning Friday August 23rd, 2019 you will receive at least one email a day for 28 days with yummy, creative, colorful content to inspire you for at least 15 minutes creating everyday,  for JOY! Emails will include creativity videos, writing prompts, audio recordings, Joyfuel Gems of Wisdom, and joyfood for thoughtall to inspire creative muse and ultimately your JOY.
  • In addition to once-a-day email LOVE we will have once a week LIVE Zoom calls where we will meet and get to know each other by sharing stories, live creativity projects and joy!
  • We also will have a private Facebook Joyfuel Circle!

Gifting (aka cost, money, moolah, $$$$)

I’m offering this in gift economy which means participants can gift back to me, if and as they choose. The bottom line is JOY!

Suggested Supplies

In determining our projects I was very cognizant to use as few materials as possible, to UPCYCLE or MAKE something from something else, and to provide multiple options so hopefully you won’t need to purchase very many things. (If you live in the Raleigh/Wake Forest, North Carolina area and want to borrow some of my things, you are welcome to my stuff… my studio is YOUR studio!)

I will send our participants the full list soon, but here are some things you can start gathering to put in your heART box to get ready for the adventure! These are our to-be- upcycled materials.


♥ craft foam, flat packing foam
♥ assorted plastic bottles tops, lids (plastic and/or metal), and wine corks (Plastic or cork)
♥ make up foam sponges (used is fine)
♥ flat cardboard (like cereal, crackers or food boxes)
empty toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls (curious? : )
♥ TWO or more flat erasers (look in drawers before buying, it’s ok if they have been slightly used)
♥ an old hard-covered book to be turned into a heART journal
♥ assorted scraps of paper, wrapping paper, colorful napkins (serviettes), sheet music, programs, words/images ripped from magazines/newspaper
paper with something printed on one side
♥ 2 or 3 Compact Discs you no longer want 
♥ an old white cotton t-shirt, OR plain white tea towel 
OR piece of cotton or linen

(Ooooooweeeeeee! I like seeing all that BOLD text…. and I LOVE using what we have instead of buying NEW!)

After reading this list I hope you are curious about WHAT we will be making!!!! I’m going to remain a little secretive as I think some of the greatest JOY might come from surprises, but here are a few little hints 🙂

♥ mini journals ♥ prayer flags ♥ stamps ♥ cards ♥ heART journal ♥ stencils ♥  & MORE ♥

This online ePlayshop is inspired by my real-life playshops and I am going to do my best to make this as personal and enJOYable as if we were sharing the same paint tray!

I hope you will join me for this adventure. Please email or leave me a message on the Joyline with any questions and I’ll get back with you!  And register now for our August 23rd start date!

dedicated to JOY, (especially yours) xoxo

a joyfuel wish

Dear KindHearts,

I’m making a wish… a wish for our collective JOY. Human Joy is something we need to cultivate, nurture and protect; our personal joy and the joy of others.

My wish is truly for your joy.

Acting towards my wish I’m working super hard behind the scenes on the JOYFUeL Kindcast–a podcast series coming out later this year–all for JOY! How does this description sound? Does it sound like something you’d enJOY? Appreciate your input 🙂

The Joyfuel Kindcast is an independent podcast series sharing personal stories of people intentionally generating kindness or creativity anywhere on earth. We uplift ideas, thoughts and actions that increase human and global kindness, creativity, presence and joy.

much love for our joy,
becky suzik

Who Who on the Joyfuel Kindcast Season Two

Dear Joyfuellers,

When the Joyfuel ecourse came out in 2014 I acted on impulse and instinct and pieced together an interview series featuring people who are committed to living their lives infused by the essences of joy, kindness and creativity. The series the JOYFUEL KINDCAST operated on the currency of LOVE necessitating.experimentation with different FREE recording platforms and modalities. The result was the first season of the Joyfuel Kindcast. I am deeply grateful to everyone who committed their time, thoughts  and lives to share with me and listeners in our little video series.

I learned so much in the process; about creativity, music, kindness, art, and also about the act of making something as meaningful as possible with very limited resources… learning about good enough for LOVE and GIFT. Together we made and shared something very special.

Season TWO of the Joyfuel Kindcast is now gestating. For our new season I pass the producer’s role to you! WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR ON THE NEXT SEASON OF JOYFUEL KINDCAST?  We want to feature your neighbors, teachers, friends—perhaps even YOU–on the program. We are looking for YOUTH and adults from all over our world. Please take a moment to think and fill out this form to submit your nomination for the Joyfuel Kindcast. (Be sure to hit “Submit” at the bottom of the page.)

Thank you SO MUCH for your ideas and suggestions!

In Joy,
Becky j. Suzik

sing your song

Dear Heart,

♪ ♫ Right now I have a few songs in my heart: one is any song “Moana” sings. 🙂 Another is any song reminding us of the gifts we have to give the world. I intend my song to be JOYFUeL — heART and words to inspire greater joy and deeper meaning in our lives. Happy Monday dear Friends. Bring forth your gifts! And if you don’t quite know what they are… whistle around the things you find curious. ♪ ♫

♪ ♫ We each have a song we must sing, be it with our voices or our lives. What is YOUR song, Beautiful? If you want to share, please post below in the open space.  ♪ ♫

<3 Let’s give a moment to your Joy: Do you plant love as seed? How? (If you like, post your seeds below.)  <3

For me right now, it’s looking at pictures of doggies who need homes–we have a gaping dog vacancy in ours. It’s putting a little surprise piece of chocolate in my children’s lunch boxes, and remembering to put one on my own chair too.

with all of my <3 for your joy,

love and wisdom walk into a bar

love and wisdom joyfuel 2015 2

Dearest Joyfuelers,

My son brought this exquisite bloom-within-a-bloom flower back for me from a walk he went on with my husband. My boy-sage–now 6– smiled ear-to-ear as he handed me a double-blossoming flower only a few minutes after I penned the beautiful gem of love/wisdom from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj into my journal. To me, the double flower–name unknown to me–embodies Maharaji’s beautiful words.

Love says “I am everything”.
Wisdom says “I am nothing”.
Between the two my life flows.

The moment my son gave it to me, my breath was captured; I felt my knees buckle to grace–and I held on tightly to my son–my teacher– giving over to the splendor of duality … to everything.

I knew his timely gift had to be shared with you. For joy. I don’t need–or even want–to know the name of the flower. Simply knowing that it is, is knowing enough.

my <3 and wishes for your joy, becky

marvelous joy

rilke joyfuel

Just less than TWO days til our LIVE adventure begins. JOYFUEL Rising!!!! Please check out the rest of this site and see if this speaks and sparks to you. It would be my blessing to share this journey with you and welcome you to the Joyfuel adventure.

WHAT IS JOYFUeL?

JOYFUeL invites  you to consider a multitude of different things you can do to activate your JOY.

JOYFUeL is not a lecture series, nor does it profess all the answers.

JOYFUeL poses questions and ideas intended to help reveal habits, patterns or thoughts that leak the JOY from our daily experience.

JOYFUeL is for ADULTS to be enjoyed alone or shared with a friend.

JOYFUeL is for CHILDREN probably most engaging for kiddos ages 8 and up– to promote awareness of the power we all have to consciously choose activities that become part of our daily routines.

Read previous Joyfuelers’ experiences here.

Will you join me for the joy of it? Yes? Let’s go on a JOY-fueled adventure together –from the convenience of our own homes 🙂

18 days til Joyfuel

find joy

Dear Human,

How are you? How much JOY is in your being, right now? On a scale of 1 to 10, where is your Joyfuel tank gauge? (1 being fumes, 10 being your tank floweth over.) Take a moment … think about it. Feel around it.

No matter where you sense your JOY to be, I believe you and I BOTH have a greater capacity for JOY, much deeper and greater JOY than we are typically aware of.

It is this very thought that has fueled me–driven me like a doolally loo–to create Joyfuel, an ecourse filled with the possibility of joy exploration…a journey to the heights of our JOY potential, using creativity, kindness, nature, awareness and … well …  of course JOY!

Would you like to go on this adventure to find greater JOY in simple being alive? Yes? Well, please do consider yourself personally invited to JOYFUEL. (an ecourse a la my heart and soul because it had to be born!)

In this homeplay adventure (aka ecourse) I’ll share ideas, thoughts, stories, a few interviews, ooooh and my heartwork with you… all with the intention to inspire you to consider your JOY and what we might be able to do to stoke our Joy flames to greater heights.

Sound good? Want to join me? If so, click here to register. We will begin this journey on Friday October 9th. Simply register and then check your email (especially starting october 9th). Then you can read, pause, consider, play. … all for your JOY, at your leisure.

You are worth it.  You deserve it. For JOY’s sake!

What are you thinking? Clicky here if you’d like to know more. Or comment below… let’s connect!

with my <3 for your JOY,
becky
