Joyland Initiative

"a regular place to meet and support one another - whomever"

A Community Center Concept Note
By Imran Ali Namazi, Jul - Sep 2019

Joyland is a place both virtual and physical where people get together, interact and make one another happy.

We exist to promote wellness in all aspects with ourselves, our friends and family and ultimately the whole world.

background ^

I built a self growing repository of information called and managed to seed it with 100 odd articles of various use to mankind.

It's network encourages educators, writers, healers, philanthropists and their teams to collaborate in a close knit social experiment for the larger good.

We promote good health and healing through a series of articles, specialists, videos, programs, thought and healing systems, people, institutions and movements.

All content and programs do not originate with us, rather we repost information from the internet and slowly include the thoughts and topics of interest from our ever growing community.

I've only developed a proof of concept over the past 6 years but the whole orchestration seems ready to try to get off the ground.

At its core is the information bureau which keeps growing as we learn and add new content to it. We refine it and add a science of prescription as we try using its nuggets of information and activities to the use of individuals and groups who can come in with any kind or problem or niggle.

I am trying to include people who have a wealth of experience and knowledge about what works practically. Some with programs and organizations of their own.

We're looking to promote physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, professional, financial, social and environmental wellness via a free information portal. Individuals who volunteer for us to man a "Joyland Center" will be encouraged to freely help out but not all will be able to do so.

Some specialists will request us to promote their businesses or activities. Volunteers may want help in return for themselves or family members. Love and service for humanity being the driving or motive force, we want to establish an "Emotional Favour Bank" where money, time, skills and resources are exchanged freely in a true spirit of oneness.

This sort of values based interaction works well in quasi utopian remote communities like ashrams and retreats like Auroville but I'm not sure if it's been tried in chaotic, stress riddled city community centres, which is precisely what I would like to discuss trying at your facility on OMR.

What I've been developing for some time now is an integrated discovery, discussion, interaction, teaching, consulting, practice and rejuvenation center where no distinction is made between caregiver / patient (think k-pax). All are learners, teachers, healers and philanthropists just at varying levels of skillset development and healing.

These are just the broad outlines of my proposal. It takes much effort and planning. Readers are requested to join the WhatsApp group to contribute.

Looking forward with much excitement,

IT companies large and small would vastly benefit from a small recreation room where multiple things can happen. We call these multi rooms and the following can take place in them.

Employees engage in co-curricular activities like pet projects and skill/professional development where they work with others from other teams.
A counsellor can help them sort out their troubles and has a record of each person's needs and progress.
Support groups are formed
A day care can be run, also a kitchen.
Workshops can be taken by educators and healers. Family members of employees can be invited.
A library of personal and professional development articles is made.
A digital library for movie nights and jukebox is slowly legally accumulated.
Charity work to neighbouring orphanages, old age homes etc is organised.
Ideas, content and lessons learnt are shared with other centres in the Joyland network via the hub, its originator.

All this depends on the interests of the decision makers in the company and their commitment to maintaining a family atmosphere and including actual families of their employees.

For example, this is a TODOLIST!

Please do the following (JLC Todolist)

1. Call your loved ones and tell them you love them, support them, and live for them.
2. Tell yourself 10 amazing things that make you you.
3. Take your wife out for dinner.
4. Call your brother and tell him you will call him more often.
5. Listen to a song that motivates you to become stronger, kinder and more confident.
6. Send an email to your boss about how your going to improve, what changes you can achieve and how your going to help the other staff.
7. Once that is done, tell him you need a place to make this happen in a more systematic way.
8. Once you have that place, use it to heal and educate employees, their families and the general public.
9. Create or expand your civil support reach and work for the needy, once again, involve your families and the general public.
10. Work this way all your life and die rich in the coin of spirit.
