Joey Brown, bookcoach


Joey Brown is a book coach, meditation facilitator, ghostwriter, entrepreneur, teacher of laughter yoga and the organiser of her own (silent) 'Inner Journey' writing retreats: Writing towards the Source. In 2013, after a long travel and a personal search, she started to live and work on the Greek island Ikaria, known for its stunning wild nature, healthy life, peace and harmony.



Joey guides you on your path to your inner self. Or in plain language: she helps you to discover your message and to get it out into the world.



"Writing is a process of wakening. It’s a matter of opening up to your inner wisdom, of opening your heart and eyes to what’s there”


WHAT TO EXPECT


You might compare Joey with a vacuum cleaner: She'll make sure that the dusty parts of your brains get the air and light they need and that you and your message get an honest chance to shine.



In Ikaria she's known as ‘the travelling book coach’; most of times she’ll take you to a magnificent place for a long walk and talk. Wherever she finds silence, she works and writes together with you: near a monastery, close to the beach, in the forest or high on top of the mountains. She’ll find for you the places that suit you best, so that you’ll feel safe to allow deep contact with yourself.



She’ll teach you to write from the heart, from your inner wisdom. She’ll guide you to ‘your source’, to the core of what really matters for you. What she want to start in you, is your process of awakening.



"Write what you need to write. Write down what really stirs and moves you. Write about what you need to do in this life."


STUDIES AND WORK



Joey studied English and Dutch literature and linguistics, took up a teaching job abroad, returned to work as a journalist and went back to teaching after some time. In her 'free' time she was active as a creative writing coach, editor, translator, ghostwriter and organiser and web writer for a major Literature Festival.



In 2010 she took a sabbatical year to travel - her personal Inner Journey. She felt an urgent need for silence, deep silence, the kind that rises up from your heart once your mind is still. This journey took her 3 years of travelling ... through Italy, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ikaria and India. She never returned to her old life. The island Ikaria slowly but surely grew into her heart as her new ‘home’. And in 2013 she decided to stay ...



"My personal dream is to re-connect people to their own heart."
