Create a life of strength and positivity.

Every day, we can choose to grow, and to focus on the practices and attitudes that enable us to cultivate and sustain healthy transformation. Through the science of resilience and the study of happiness, we build a foundation for optimal living in times of stress, loss, and sudden change.

You learn

  • What resilience is and how to foster it
  • Why happiness matters and how it increases well-being
  • How resilience and happiness intersect to bring about lasting change
  • Practical tools from Positive Psychology, including mindfulness, happiness boosters, and re-storying
  • How shifts in attitude can restructure difficult moments into positive growth.

Learn to move through challenging times into a more serene life—one in which you flourish no matter what.
