The science of positive psychology gives us the perspective and tools to increase our happiness. But it’s also more than that. This study is about building the capacity to see ourselves and the world through a more grounded, optimistic lens, so we can manage life’s up and downs with greater ease and wisdom.
In the Certificate in Wholebeing Positive Psychology (CiWPP), we explore positive psychology and also examine who we are when we are at our best. This clarity about what is true and good and strong within us provides us with options that support impactful, positive change.
CiWPP is a nine-month in-depth study of flourishing taught by leading researchers and thought leaders from the fields of positive psychology, resilience, coaching, and leadership. With seven online modules, which you can view when convenient for you, and two one-week immersions at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, CiWPP immerses you in both learning and experience—a necessary structure to create lasting change.
Whether you seek to launch or reinvigorate a career, build better relationships with yourself and loved ones, increase your daily experience of happiness, or navigate transitions with greater resilience, the skills and tools you learn in this course will help you craft a sustainable path forward.
I invite you to join me to explore who you are at your best.
