Butterfly on Child's Fingers
“Authentic growth begins with the heart, persists with science, and regenerates itself.”

There is a growing body of evidence-based background to what we do. Most of the science in this field validates what we know intuitively; sometimes it inspires us to a better understanding and helps us reach new levels of authentic success. In this section of our site we will document a few of the studies, movements, organizations, and individuals who are contributing to this body of knowledge. We continue to base our work with your kids on the principles of intelligence, insight and compassion, and these resources validate and expand that work.
