Experience a Whole-Person Approach to Positive Psychology and Optimal Well-Being.

You’re one of the early birds!

We’ve gotten calls from people just like you who want to sign up for the latest and greatest Certificate in Wholebeing Positive Psychology program. It’s not ready for prime-time launch (yet) but consider this your very own private, red-carpet roll-out of the soon-to-be-public, in-depth study of the science of human flourishing—at the lowest price it’s ever been (and ever will be).

Because there are still details to be finalized, you get a special low price. Once all the details are in place (which will be shortly), we’ll open registration to the general public and the price will increase.

See, the early bird does get the worm!

Register for the Certificate today and get half off the prerequisite, a 5-week online course called the Introduction to Wholebeing Happiness. That’s a savings of $247.50.

I’m so looking forward to having you join the course.

Be well,

Megan Signature

A Whole-Body Experience

The course extends the dimensions of positive psychology with a rare whole-person approach. Rather than a cognitive-only perspective on the science of well-being, students follow the SPIRE methodology.
