Soul-inspired people start with changing themselves, and the world benefits as a result in immeasurable ways.


If you are open and willing, embodied wisdom profoundly transforms your life.


You may gain the fortitude to follow a dream, speak up, forgive, open your heart for deeper intimacy, or find more compatible and supportive relationships. You might start new health habits or let go of an addiction. 

Change happens when you utilize not only your mental capacities, but your intuitive, emotional, and spiritual natures as you read. Embodied learning involves all of you.

I invite you to put your heart front and center, know your shadows, and be freed from their hold on your life. I invite you to awaken your wisdom from within.

I wrote Inspired in 2018, and the principles it outlines will forever be relevant and applicable to anyone desiring a more joyous and meaningful life. 


Forward By Marci Shimoff

"I believe in Inspired for two reasons.

First, I know in my heart that nothing is more important than living a life aligned with your soul’s inspiration. It’s essential not only for your own happiness but also for a better world. Imagine what our planet would look like if everyone lived a soul-inspired life.

Second, I believe in this book because I believe in Joy Taylor.
She’s an emphatic “Yes!” for the highest and best for every
person. She is generous, creative, open-hearted, and filled with integrity. Joy lives this message daily, as inspiration is her calling and authentic gift."

- best-selling author of Happy for No Reason and creator of Your Year of Miracles Program

antidote to the growing sense of fear that we live in an unsafe world."

to re-choose your dream or discover your dream, this is a perfect book to enlighten your soul to live an inspired life!"

You don't just hear inspiration; you feel inspired."

Create a Soul-Inspired Life

“Inspiration will take you where you want to go. It will provide more pleasure and peace than you could have imagined. It will show up in ways better than what you have dreamed and more playfully than your mind could have directed. But the kind of inspiration that comes from your soul center requires a paradigm shift in how you see the world and yourself. Indeed, the path of soul inspiration is right in front of us, but so few of us see it. Even fewer act on it.”
