We explore the miraculous workings of the mind and share a simple yet profound understanding of it’s invisible power.

We focus on looking at how the mind works …. and how it doesn’t.

We learn how our moment to moment experience of life is not created by the world around us. It is created only through the remarkable, invisible power of Thought.

It’s what we call a constant.  If we think it, we feel it. If we think it, it’s our reality.

Thought as the constant, creative and causational power behind our psychological system is a life-changing discovery. When we understand that this is the way our minds work, we are ok within ourselves – even when we think that we are not. When we suffer with uncomfortable feelings such as stress or feeling down, it is not because anything is wrong with us ….or the world. It is because we have lost sight of the fact that we live in a world of Thought.

We might think that other people, events, and other things cause our bad feeling. But this is not actually possible.

Feelings are brought to life by the power of Thought in the moment.

This is the inseparable connection between Thought and feeling. 

This simple but often overlooked fact has enormous implications: it realigns us with our common sense, creativity, and wellbeing. As we see for ourselves that our reality can only ever be created this one way, so many things in our everyday lives begin to make sense and fall into place.

And we live life in touch with our natural resilience and innate wellbeing more and more of the time.


  • We work in schools and with families; in academies, organisations and communities.
  • We place young people at the centre of their own community.
  • We build a common resilience language and culture across entire school communities, families and organisations.
  • We train teachers and organisational leaders in delivering the inside-out resilience approach.
  • We provide workshops for teachers and educational leaders on managing burn-out and challenging situations.
  • We provide workshops for parents so that they can join in with their children in creating a healthy and resilient family unit.

Young Person-Centred Community Model


This unique educational offering is thoughtfully designed to engage young people with a structured and dynamic programme in an educational environment, the curriculum creates sustainable and wide reaching benefits. Each participant is empowered with the built-in knowledge that they can manage their challenges and difficulties, accelerating an increase in wellbeing and resilience in all aspects of personal, social, family, school and communal life.

Consisting of a series of interactive lessons creatively designed to be stimulating and appealing to young people (aged 11-18), the curriculum takes students on a 10-week journey towards understanding how to access their innate resilience and wellbeing form the inside-out.

Trained facilitators run in-classroom sessions consisting of a mix of interactive discussions, activities, self-reflections, animations, videos, group exercises and multimedia clips.

social media are not personal; rather she understands they simply
reflect the thinking and state of mind of others in the moment

The curriculum is divided into 2 parts:

In Establishing the Foundation, students to discover how their minds are intelligently designed to deal with whatever life brings by learning about:

  • How the mind creates all of our realities, feeling states, moods and behaviours.
  • How there is a crucial connection between thought and feeling.
  • How they can have the confidence to make positive changes.
  • How they can navigate challenges with greater ease and success.
  • Why they feel and behave the way they do.

In Exploring the Implications, students practically address the following issues from the fresh perspective of understanding how we operate from the inside-out.

  • Stress, pressure, anxiety and low moods
  • Self-image, identity and self-esteem
  • Addictions and compulsive behaviours
  • Difference, tolerance, respect and diversity
  • Prejudice, judgement and conflict
  • Bullying and anti-social behaviour
  • Social media overload and addiction
  • Barriers to learning and motivation

“Talking to my friends about the connection between thought and feelings is really important because then we all understand what it is going on when we get upset with each other”

Simmy, 13


In addition to the in-school programme, participants can receive one-to-one/follow-up sessions with a trained practitioner when requested.

Sessions do not set out to give young people better “coping strategies” to deal with problems, which are often unsustainable and difficult to replicate in real life situations. Our focus is on the realisation that wellbeing and resilience is always available, achieving a lasting sense of self-authorisation for participants.


Core to our vision is training young people to co-deliver the IHEART curriculum and support them taking leadership roles in sharing this understanding with their peers. As the logic underpinning our approach is easy to understand and relate to, students often become passionate about sharing the benefits of what they are learning with friends and peers. This a very effective means to embed this learning in the school environment and the culture of social groups and communities in which young people circulate.
