We started Joyful ViBRAYtions to lead us in recovery from serious training, and continue to bring more fun into our lives. We are following our bliss!
We do what we do for the the fun of it! It’s legal, no prescriptions necessary, and there are lots of positive side effects.
We started with some trainings, read some books, bought A LOT of drums and a van, and started inviting people to play.
(for a bit more serious bio keep scrolling to the bottom of the page)
Well, we’ve learned that “there” is no place to “get to”, as it all already exists in our here and now through the choices we make. We simply need to be what it is we want right here in each moment. From here, we create our future. You may be asking, “what in the world does ‘Joyful ViBRAYtions’ have to do with this?”
What we are offering to all of us through Joyful ViBRAYtions is a way to come together to create joy through fun, play and relaxation. We see fun and play as an imperative part of a thriving life. Joy is simply a state of mind that we choose, and we are choosing to be part of something that is uplifting to our whole selves.
Jack and Tammy Bray are the husband and wife team co-creators of Joyful ViBRAYtions. After their combined fifty years in the social services field as Mental Health/Drug and Alcohol/Child and Family therapists, they are engaging in a new adventure to create, grow, and support new, and sometimes ancient, avenues for our individual and collective wellness. Wellness being an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Some of these new and ancient avenues we are inviting people to explore in our “Playshops for the Soul” have value that extends beyond the playshop time into every day life. Our experiences have shown us that our culture is in need of more purposeful levity, aka fun and play, to weave throughout our lives of responsibilities and commitments. This is motivating us to offer health and wellness programs that are playful and uplifting interactive experiences to businesses, organizations and other groups. Our background experiences equip us to create and tailor events specifically to the themes of your retreats, staff development sessions, team building events, gatherings etc. In short, we believe in health for the fun of it! So whether we are leading playshops, drum circles, Laughter Yoga, meditations, Humming for Health or playful music making, our intention is to do so in a safe community atmosphere of levity and fun while encouraging freedom of creativity and self expression.
