Embodied Positive Psychology Summit: Leadership in Education
June 23–26 Sunday–Wednesday

For educators, counselors, parents, administrators, coaches, and workshop leaders.

Learn from leaders making a positive difference in education at all levels—K–12, higher education, adult learning, and coaching. Drawn from the teachings of positive psychology and social and emotional learning, this summit explores

The importance of meaning to create connectedness that deeply sustains and enlivens the learning environment

The science of character education for transforming individuals, groups, and cultures

The energy of whole-person engagement when lessons are designed with embodied learning in mind

The RISE model of stress resilience, and how it has impacted educator engagement and work longevity.

This summit is for anyone who wants to create more flourishing in their own life—and that of others—through education and the practice of evidence-based tools.

Through keynote lectures, small-group discussions, movement exercises, poster sessions, and case-study sharing, you experience firsthand the latest science supporting mindfulness, resilience, strengths, and positivity for learning that sticks.
