22 Jun Proud to partner at Cheltenham School District

I am so proud to be affiliated with with Cheltenham School district since September 2015. Many wins since then, including: adding mindfulness and positive psychology to pillars of the strategic plan; launching positive parenting and teaching workshops for adults; facilitating a "mindfulness month;" and inviting 20+ teachers into our certification program. It's been a healthy and vibrant partnership this year and I look forward to our next steps for student, teacher, and community wellbeing.

02 Sep What I learn in teaching positive psychology + gratitude to CAPP6 Philadelphia

I am so in awe. Awe ô/ noun 1. 
a feeling of reverential respect We just completed the first cohort of CAPP in Philadelphia. Wow, what an amazing bunch of extra-ordinary hu/man be~ings. Really. Wow. I always knew they were special. In fact, when we started the class in March, an intuitive told me that many of us traveled together in former lives. For some of you, this sounds funny. For us, though, it resonates. Just imagine the good travel buddies (I hope) you have in this life (you know, the ones you have that make “vacation” easy breezy and funnnn) and multiply that...

19 Feb To my nearly 4,000 Facebook friends Re: My Entrepreneurial Passionate Plea

I post on Facebook a lot -- especially about my work. Maybe it’s too much for some of you <insert my sisters shaking their heads in agreement >, but for me it’s what I have got to do right now to survive as an entrepreneur. The way I figure is that I’ve got 4K people who have chosen to be friends with me on here. Maybe it’s because we went to third grade together—or danced at the Roxy one night long ago. Maybe it’s because you like my view of the world or share conviction that we can make a difference. Entrepreneurs...

Actually, the City of, well, Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection) is an optimistic hot-bed of positive thinking research. That’s thanks to the happy presence of Dr. Martin Seligman, a Penn professor and the director of its Positive Psychology Center (PPC), and his merry band of cohorts.

Promoting what he termed “positive psychology,” he asked practitioners...
