Parenting is hard -- yet it’s one of life’s most rewarding and fulfilling experience. It’s also, one of the most researched areas in the entire field of social science, yet there is no parenting manual. Current research shows that the most important thing a person can do to be a better parent is to focus on developing him or herself – to look inward. For the past 23 years, Education for Excellence has offered Masterful Parenting Training®, a dynamic growth and development course based on the premise that, as parents, “we teach who we are”. This uplifting and inspiring course supports parents in developing essential life skills they can teach their children by example -- qualities such as: Focused Listening Feeling Valued and Loved Assertive Communication Peaceful Conflict Resolution Forgiveness, Empathy, Acceptance and Joy Taking responsibility Making Conscious Choices It is well known that children thrive in a supportive home environment created by parents who embody, and teach by example. So, join us for this important Self Mastery social and emotional learning program, if you want to know what it takes to develop the essential skills to help your child thrive and flourish. This in-depth introductory class will be lead by Dr. Marc Rosenbaum, founder and director of Education for Excellence.

What is Positive Psychology? According to Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman, Director of the University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center and a leading authority in the field of Positive Psychology:  “Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.” Even when things are going well many of us carry a constant inner dialogue that tends to be self-deprecating. Even if we exercise self-discipline in our diet and exercise, we rarely consider discipline of thought as a way to enhance our emotional health and well being. Yet, much of our personal freedom is blocked by negative thought patterns and beliefs. Studies show that high school students who deprioritize their happiness to gain admission to top colleges are adopting harmful life habits that have led to a "mental health crises" on college campuses.  A 2013 report by the Yale College Council found that more than half of undergraduates sought mental health care from the university during their time there. Numerous studies have also shown that nurturing positive skills can help pull people out of depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts. Using positive psychology as the foundation for this workshop, we will cover the use of positive thinking to help us make peace with the past, seek contentment in the present moment and acknowledge a hopeful future. Some of the happiness habits and tools you will learn:  Methods for controlling and changing our thoughts and behavior to become more positive Necessary steps to creating the balance that is right for us in our lives How to deal with pessimistic people and negative situations How to break negative patterns of thinking that are self-defeating Tips to live mindfully Who should attend: Parents and their high school children Teachers, school counselors and camp couselors Anyone wanting to learn valuable happiness habits Join us as we share proven tools to foster more well-being in your life and at work by being more positive, more engaged, have better relationships, find more meaning and accomplish more. Come explore ways to have a more positive mind-set. “Every business and personal outcomes show improvement when the brain is positive. Training your brain to be positive is not so different from training your muscles at the gym.” –Shawn Achor

It’s In The Cards… Learn how you can manifest and create the romantic relationship you yearn for.  What if relationships could be easier, much easier?  What if you could know for certain who is the right person for you?  What if you could have a massive ‘Aha’ moment to break through the limiting patterns, the icy-resistance and the stubborn confusion to enter a place of romantic clarity, peace and love? You can. Spiritual life coach, Alexander Dunlop, is back at The Academi of Life, and he is joined by his life partner Viki Scudiery. They will both reveal how the Law of Attraction and the mathematics of the playing cards helped them choose each other as life partners, and will also share how we can find the person of our dreams. Following Alexander’s divorce several years ago, he decided to find a better way to select a partner and engage in a relationship. He decided to test out the Law of Attraction.  So, he did something very specific. Separately and simultaneously, Viki also leveraged the Law of Attraction in her own way.  Join us to find out exactly what they both did to attract each other. Alexander also used a mathematical toolkit to give him the answers. This mathematical toolkit is found in the ordinary deck of playing cards. Unbeknownst to most people, the deck of cards represents a mathematical model of life.  It shows us the harmonics of our existence. Once we align our life to the mathematical frequencies that underlie our lives, then we harmonize our lives to what is truly possible for us. It’s how we chose the right partner. In our relationship, it helps us understand each other’s shadow patterns, so that we can have compassion for each other. It helps us understand each other’s love languages. Don’t miss this opportunity to uncover the secret to happy relationships! Join us and learn how to ‘play your cards right’ and find the man/woman of your dreams.

We need to dance … dancing is food for the soul, ‘it’s silent poetry.’ Studies show that dancing is not only good for your physical health it also has an impact on your emotional center and generally enhances your mood and mental well-being when you move your body. Specifically there are three elements in dancing that will improve your mind and body health: it’s social (you meet people) it’s physical (you are getting exercise ) it’s cognitive (you have to remember the steps) When you engage in things that are social, physical and cognitive you will improve your brain.  A recent study led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine revealed that dancing reduced stress, depression, the risk of dementia and increases serotonin, energy, flexibility, strength balance and endurance. In addition to the health benefits…dancing is so much fun….you feel so good after! So grab a friend and COME OUT AND PLAY … COME MOVE YOUR BODY, improve your mind and dance away your worries!
