Joyce Golden Seyburnâ€™s love for children has been the central theme in her life. She received a B.S. in education from Wayne State University and proceeded to teach kindergarten and first grade. While her three children were young, she worked on her masterâ€™s degree in early childhood development and also wrote articles for The Detroit News and various magazines.
After volunteering at the Center for Mind/Body Medicine, Deepak Chopraâ€™s first West Coast well-being center, she found out that she was soon to become a grandmother for the first time. Searching for mind/body parenting books to share with her children and finding none, she decided to write her own. She then began Seven Secrets to Raising a Happy and Healthy Child, the first book on the mind/body approach to parenting. Currently, she speaks on mind/body issues for parents.
