Dear Educator, Parent, Community Member,


We know how challenging navigating the waters of life and education has become. We stand in the present, and look to the future with hope for the restoration of healthy, happy people, and for inclusive caring, supportive communities, and societies. We have developed social emotional learning techniques,and tools, and are implementing instructional modules. The Center can also support with our Certified  Social Emotional Learning Trainers from the Center for Advancement, as well as, specialized instructional options via  classes, workshops, teacher certifications supporting professional and personal development for all.

Let us navigate and support our children, youth, and each other. 

We are happy to announce that The Center for Advancement In Social Emotional Learning is ready to support. Here is a short description of our modules and our trainings:



Week 1: Self-Love in Education : Self love is something that we cultivate within ourselves and as educators in others. The landscape of education is transforming along with us. We realize the importance of Social Emotional Learning. Through understanding self, family, community and the world, focused on our own personal self love, we begin to create a different landscape that works for us individually and because of that, works for others. Based on the basic principles, guidelines, and ethics of Social Emotional Learning, this module/certification explores tools and techniques that have been crafted over 25 years of Social Emotional Learning experiences that inspire and enhance a deep connection to self. Let us be happy in our bodies, as we cultivate resilience, inner peace, breath work, mindfulness, feeling like we belong, with empathy, compassion, and a skill set to navigate challenging times with grace and ease, still loving ourselves and each other. Complete with assessments of written and video components. We lead with the heart. Additionally you receive year long support from our trained mentors. 


Week 2: Mapping Out Self: Connection to our inner guidance system is something that we cultivate within ourselves and, as educators, in others. The landscape of education is transforming along with us. We realize the importance of Social Emotional Learning. Through understanding self, family, community, and the world, focused on our own personal exploration and discovery, we begin to create a different landscape that works for us individually and because of that, works for others. This module/certification is a guide to and through embodiment practices, tools, and techniques that have been tested and proven effective over the past 25 years in education settings internationally, for all ages and beliefs. We have spent many years training bodies and minds. It is time to focus on the inner guidance system, and our deep connection with self. Through mapping all things become clear. When we actively participate in our healing, through written and creative work, we can literally see what we are thinking, feeling and addressing with self. The Center for Advancement has a unique and age old tool of utilizing the medicine wheel to understand, explore and determine what is important to us. As we design and commit to our lives and what we are cultivating, natural healing occurs. The companion manual for this module is Be The Medicine, The Medicine Wheel Exploration Technique.Utilizing a technique based in mapping, participants will be guided into exploration and cultivation of personal dreams, hopes, and goals, while exploring areas that are necessary for our health and wellness, wholeness, and success. We will explore and come to understand self, family, community, and the world, while witnessing and experiencing what it feels like to ‘hold safe and brave space’ for self and others. 


Week 3: Identity: Who are you in actuality? How did you form your opinion of self? What areas do you wish to cultivate or transform? This module is about discovering the greatest you, and what fuels and inspires you. What is yours to do and to be? Our identities can be confusing at times. As families, societies, and the media tell us who we are or who we should be, the real work and creativity here is in self exploration into how we as individuals really work and who we really want to cultivate. Here we explore choices and options, and make some solid decisions based on what brings us joy, happiness, and a sense of well being. 


Week 4: Self in Relation to Community: When we have deeply explored and rooted our self love, our inner guidance system and our understanding of our personal identity, we have set a foundation that is empowered and centered, balanced and whole to move out into the world. We have embodied techniques of resilience. Through social emotional learning we realize the importance of what we cultivate within ourselves and, as educators/community members, in others. How do we fit in with our community? How do we fit in with Society? What are the points that work to support us being “a part of” and “included in?” How is it that we come to feel included, and like we are contributing? What would we like to bring forward more readily and embody more often in these areas? Participants will seek to understand, cultivate, and embody their best sense of self in relation to community. Explore what it is to feel a part of, to feel connected with others, and work within a healthy and balanced body, mind and spirit. 


Week 5: Self in Relationship with the World and Universe: Being a part of something greater than ourselves. Is it love, compassion, and kindness, or perhaps higher power, spirit, or creator? How about your ancestral relations? Grandmothers and Grandfathers, whether physically present here or not -- we are all connected. What is the concept of WE or oneness? How can this activity exploration into exploring and embodying these concepts support us on our journey?


Week 6: The Classroom as a Social System: How do we work SEL into a classroom or community setting? What is the social setting? How can it progress? How are you setting up your classroom or education space?  How do different personality types and people types play off each other? We will explore the classroom within the larger framework of schools, education systems, and communities. Participants will learn embodiment practices, tools, and techniques to foster a solid foundation of self in relation to the classroom, and how we foster that space for others.  As well as be introduced to “Restorative Circle Practice”. 


Week 7: Creating Safe and Brave Spaces: Safe and brave spaces are designed and cultivated. How can we create those spaces to foster the learning outcomes in SEL that should be cultivated within ourselves, in our students, and in our communities? What type of classroom do you want to foster? What are the boundaries in SEL which keep you and your students flourishing, safe, and brave? Cultivating your safe and brave space guidelines are the main focus of this certification. Participants will determine what that looks like, feels like, and sounds like, as well as drafting their safe and brave space guidelines to be implemented. 


Week 8: Chart and Launch Your SEL Journey: This module/certification is all about you. What have your learned? Come to terms with? How would you like to continue to foster your development moving forward?  Participants will determine goals and design the implementation to successfully accomplish those goals. This is creating your SEL Action plan, or your education plan, life plan, dream plan. Whether it is your own program, or moving forward in community, or with your family or classroom, or perhaps to become a certified SEL instructor/educator with The Center for Advancement in Social Emotional Learning, we lead with the heart.

Beginning in the first time zone in New Zealand, the wave flows from heart to heart across the world, culminating in Kuai, Hawaii. This year we have two waves running. One at sunrise and one at 1;11 PM in your heart and time zone. We collectively, consciously choose to cultivate love, care and respect and send it forth.
