ABOUT DR. JOI LEWIS

“Dr. Joi” Lewis is CEO and Founder of Joi Unlimited Coaching & Consulting and the Orange Method. Her work is deeply informed by growing up in East St. Louis, Illinois, and is grounded in healing justice. As a “bodyworker” for the collective body (systems) and individual bodies (self), Dr. Joi (as many fondly call her) holds space for the discovery of critical pressure points for liberation and healing from trauma through radical self care.  Dr. Joi is a highly sought after mediator, coach, community healer, and facilitator of liberation locally, nationally and globally. After a 20+ year career in higher education, she now describes herself as the “Artist-Activist formerly known as Dean Lewis.” She is an unapologetic joy instigator, a certified kemetic and hot vinyasa yoga teacher, and a facilitator of meditation and mindfulness. Dr. Joi believes in interrupting oppressor patterns (including her own) with loving kindness so we can reach for our own humanity, and each others’. She has a daily practice of trying to “live” fully in her own body. She claims St. Paul, MN, as her adult home in the Frogtown neighborhood. Her debut book entitled, “ Healing, The Act of Radical Self-Care, “ is due out in December it can befound here www.joiunlimited.com/healing.  You can stay connected with her work at The Radical Self-Care University (RSCU) on facebook.

ABOUT RADICAL SELF CARE

Radical Self-Care is a centering process of transformation and healing that reminds us of our inherent brilliance and goodness.  It is the core value that underlies our coaching and consulting strategy: the Orange Method (OM).

“Radical Self-Care requires your ultimate health not just your ultimate sacrifice.”
Dr. Joi Lewis

ABOUT THE ORANGE METHOD (OM)

Created by- Dr. Joi Lewis, Founder & CEO of Joi Unlimited

  • Why Orange? It is the sacral chakra color. It is located in your lower abdomen and is the most important emotional center; transformation starts at this centering place. Furthermore, the color orange is amazing!
 
  • Why OM? It is a sacred sound and spiritual icon in Dharmic religions. It means self within and the entirety of the universe. I expand OM in this context to also mean transformation and liberation and to remind us of our need for therapeutic spaces, healthy eating, conscious movement and emotional liberation, and our ability to transform against the back-drop of oppression induced trauma.

ABOUT RADICAL HOSPITALITY

Radical Hospitality, a core value of the Belonging Establishment (BE), is the practice of going out of our way to welcome people and create a sense of belonging. It not only assists organizations in their efforts to recruit and retain members of historically underrepresented groups, but also helps strengthen relationships among those who are already connected.  

“Radical Hospitality requires that we extend the ultimate welcome, not just our practiced politeness.”
-Dr. Joi Lewis

ABOUT THE BELONGING ESTABLISHMENT (BE)

BE was created as a vehicle for community-based cultural onboarding, particularly for people of color and other underrepresented populations. BE asserts that Radical Hospitality is not a luxury but rather a necessary act to interrupt oppression. The result creates a deep sense of belonging, central to disrupting both historic and current patterns of isolation that keep us from being fully connected and present with ourselves and others.
