Overcoming adversity is what produces character. And character, even more than IQ, is what leads to real and lasting success.

Youth "Success" Starts with Wellbeing, Not Intelligence

The story we learned and usually tell about childhood and success is about intelligence. Yet, without happiness and knowing one's life is valuable, nothing is possible. On this path to safeguard mental health and emotional well-being,  educators, researchers, and scientists in psychology and neuroscience uncovered qualities that sages have known for centuries: What matters most with "success" has to do with what within.  Humanistic strengths such as kindness, perseverance, gratitude, conscientiousness, optimism, and many more can help your child achieve amazing things, even in the most painful circumstances.

Helping Your Child Express the Beauty and Magnificence You See

Your child was born from love and, therefore, made out of love—  perfect, whole, and complete. But somewhere along the path—through familial imprints, societal expectations, and cultural conditioning—many of our children lose their sparkle. Yet, neither our academic nor health systems support inward growth or holistic healing that addresses the root cause, avoids popping pills, and empowers them to be the medicine. As a result, our children never flourish and often are not prepared for adulthood. For youth growing up in the constraints of poverty, the chances are even slimmer.

 

We exist to solve this gap. Soul Seated Journey emerges from the foundation of compassion and altruism research to deliver a new youth development program and model to effectively help youth express their true magnificence, like the way you know them to be.

We address four root causes of individual barriers with scale

Our research and investigation with youth reveal four root causes that present barrier to their mental and emotional.  The core components of our solution are based on addressing this new understanding of individual barriers, creating an environment to help them develop the capacities to succeed, and putting new research into practice, at scale.

Young people growing up in difficult circumstances lack the experience to navigate some of life’s most common yet critical challenges, like self-confidence, relationship management, mental stress, or interpersonal issues. Many don’t have a solid support system, tools, or knowledge base to lean on in trying times or to help clarify, outline, and navigate their path of wellbeing. 

Consistent, continuous practices will strengthen muscles in different areas so youth get seasoned at handling life’s challenges long term. Peer learning circles provide safe spaces to engage specific topics, share and receive advice, achieve targeted growth, and make powerful connections.

Most young people facing adversity lack the clarity and courage needed to captain their own developmental success. Particularly at a time in life when they are forming their self-image and confronted with the practical and emotional realities of unwittingly exchanging the innocence of youth to the responsibilities of adulthood, many feel lost and alone, unable to chart an intentional and empowered course forward. 

Healing comes in the form of relationships. Youth will find our Journey Guides to be loyal and trusting, and our experts to be compassionate, unbiased, and heart-centered, making it easy to be open, honest, and vulnerable. Earning their trust is at the core of everything we do.

Cultivate Supportive Relationships

Young people growing up in difficult circumstances lack the experience to navigate some of life’s most common yet critical challenges, like self-confidence, relationship management, mental stress, or interpersonal issues. Many don’t have a solid support system, tools, or knowledge base to lean on in trying times or to help clarify, outline, and navigate their path of wellbeing. 

Your initial assessment will provide a clear picture of your current state and ideal starting point. From there, the youth's Journey Guide and dedicated team will outline a specific plan for achieving their unique wellbeing goals.

Many may know their goal, but don’t have the skills, experiences or know-how to turn their goals into reality. They may excel in a particular area but lack what’s needed for execution in others. Even if they’re fortunate enough to seek and find trusted outside support, their advisors generally lack the deep, big-picture understanding to unpack and resolve the core issue.

Each youth has a Journey Guide and a dedicated team to support them through the process and answer questions that arise. It’s like having Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday team as your personal board of advisors! They will never be alone in their journey. If they need additional support, their Journey Guide will find the Soul Seated network local practitioner who’s right for them.

We have their back.
