You have all the answers you are looking for within you. You just need to listen for them.
In our busy lives, many of us have become disconnected to our higher selves, and with that comes a sense of uncertainty about life and its direction, or feelings of unhappiness or as if something is missing.
If you are feeling uncertain, discontented, or stressed about life, you don't have to go far to find the answers. You just have to invest time to look inward and connect with your highest self.
“At the centre of your being you have the answer. You know who you are and you know what you want.”
At the Joyful Journey Retreat we teach participants how to reconnect to their higher self by getting out of their head and into their body and by reconnecting with nature - your sacred portal to your highest self.
Discover the tools that will enable you to:
Tap into inner wisdom and unleash your joy
Find clarity of purpose
so you have more energy to do what you love
Connect with what really matters
so you have less stress & more time
Step into who you are meant to be
and fall in love with your life

I'm Anita Adams, founder of Joyful Inspired Living
and the Joyful Journey Retreats. I have been teaching people
the art of creating a life they love since 2014, after investing a year in the South of France where I began to deeply understand
the power of going within oneself to find clarity.
Once I learned how to tap into inner wisdom, my life aligned itself,
I found greater purpose, meaning, clarity and a wonderful sense of joy.
I am excited to connect with you on your Joyful Journey, to introduce you to The Wisdom Way of finding clarity, and to welcome you to our seaside cottage on Bowen Island for this magical retreat experience!
"The Joyful Journey Retreat [is] such a wonderful experience... The activities, meditations and conversations were engaging and did a great job of facilitating my own personal discoveries and exploration. The group discussions were dynamic and there were fantastic women to connect with to share laughter and tears. Anita offers her unique perspective of her journey and does it with great courage and vibrant enthusiasm. She is a wonderful kind host and I would recommend the Joyful Journey Retreat to many along their own path of discovery."
"The Joyful Journey Retreat was a beautifully insightful weekend hosted by Anita Adams in her lovely sea view home on Bowen Island. Over the course of the weekend Anita shared her philosophies and practices for tapping into your Inner Wisdom and creating a life full of purpose and joy. Together we enjoyed yoga, breath-work, meditations, forest reflective walks and many opportunities to share and be present with a great group of women. I would recommend this retreat for any women wishing to experience some serene "me" time dedicated to getting in touch with their inner selves and creating a practice of reflection." C. Kyllo
"Joyful Journey Retreat was an amazing experience. The environment was so pleasant, the meals and hospitality so warm. I can’t say enough about your kindness. A lot of favourite memories, but walking (hiking) through the forest for me, created an incredible sense of awe. I felt like I was greeted with peace listening to the sounds of nature because I was surrounded by it, Thank you so so much Anita for the most wonderful weekend getaway!" S. Laqua
"Anita is a master in finding and connecting with amazing people and creating magic. I was lucky to join her first Joyful Journey retreat and found answers that I did not know I was looking for. She is a gracious, kind, patient, and insightful host and finds ways to make her guests feel comfortable and open up. I admire how grounded and connected to nature Anita is, she left me inspired"
"Anita's full life is perfect fodder for an inspired and inspiring podcast. She has been a lightning rod for striving for excellence and has never once rested on her formidable laurels. What's uniquely Anita about this chapter is that as she has matured she has opened her heart to a wider audience, and the world is better for it. To know Anita is to feel safe to be yourself in her presence, and now she encourages her listeners in the same authentic way. Bravo Anita! To her audience: Finding joy is perhaps the reason we're all here, and if you're not already on that path yourself, listen to an episode from Anita, and you'll be hatching your joy plan before she signs off." K. Benz
"Anita is truly in tune with her bliss. Adams outlines the series “about finding clarity in who we choose to be” with a strong opening story about her own journey ... Her presentation is first rate [and] the initial episode offers insight into what Adams regards as the keys to accessing our highest selves which includes the usual nature bathing and listening to your inner voice. The podcast comes complete with a website, blog, the requisite social media links (including TikTok), and even offers virtual and physical spiritual retreats near Adams home turf on Bowen Island. … We will stay tuned for more of her Joyful Journey to “heighten the collective consciousness” - indeed a noble objective." - P.
