This course is more than a training in positive psychology—it’s a learning journey that will forever transform your personal and professional life.
Course Dates

March 28 to December 3, 2023 

What started as a deep dive into a new professional journey became so much more than that. Never did I think that this was going to benefit me personally, and in such deep ways. Never did I realize I was going to become happier, stronger, and more of who I am. I am not sure I have ever felt this understood, nor have I understood myself so deeply and compassionately.

Positive Insight

As a psychologist, people came to me because they felt miserable. After a traditional session, they were less miserable. It wasn’t until I took the Certificate in Wholebeing Positive Psychology, and applied it in my practice, that I was able to help others (and myself) be happier.

Sharon Saadia, PhD

Of the many personal and professional benefits I realized, two stand out: First, I learned how to be braver than I ever imagined possible. Second, the science behind positive psychology now informs all of my coaching and corporate workshops in a powerful and compelling way.

Immersive training based on the unique SPIRE model of
Integral Happiness and Well-being,
created by the founders of Wholebeing Institute

At Wholebeing Institute, the SPIRE model of Integral Happiness and Well-Being, developed by Tal Ben-Shahar, Maria Sirois, and Megan McDonough, is the basis for the study of positive psychology.

SPIRE presents a vision of the individual as a whole, considering the spiritual, physical, intellectual, relational, and emotional dimensions. Through these five dimensions, we study the science and tools that transform our personal and professional lives, creating more well-being and happiness for ourselves as well as our loved ones, clients, organization, and society in general.
