We are very grateful for the contributions each and every one of our partners makes to the community. Please take a moment to discover more about our experts and to click on their links. They might have something you need to grow your joy muscles, so go explore and engage with these wonderful people.

We are proud to partner on the Year of Joy initiative with amazing people, who are experts in one or more of the Joy Superpower’s we are featuring each week.

The Art and Science of Joy team will collaborate with these experts each week to share with the Year of Joy community members their wise words, their inspiring stories and their empowering tips and tricks on how to make use of the Joy Superpower to bring more joy to your life as well as to the lives of others. 

We would like to thank our Joy Superpower Partners from the bottom of our hearts for their generosity and kindness in sharing their wisdom with the Year of Joy community members. Without their joyful contributions the Year of Joy would have remained just a “if only we could” project.
