Start Here
Welcome to The Flourishing Center® Where the science of happiness fuels the art of thriving.™

Discover how to apply positive psychology to help your clients, students, family, friends, children—and yourself—lead more fulfilling lives.

Our mission is to train the change agents of the world® to create  measurable positive change in their lives, organizations and communities.

Did you know that only approximately 17% of the population is flourishing? Nearly half are “just okay” – not depressed, but not thriving. Be a part of the movement that’s uniting for a world of greater happiness, wellbeing, resilience and engagement.

We are the first to offer

A comprehensive training in the factors that enable people to thrive.

Students ready to use tools to apply the science.

Strategies to help people create sustainable work for themselves.

What is Positive Psychology? It’s a scientific and professional movement that brings together the latest research in neuroscience, mindfulness, contemplative studies, and holistic medicine. Here at The Flourishing Center we teach people how to incorporate that data into their personal and professional lives. Armed with these tools, our change agents help others thrive.
