I work for a private, not-for-profit mental health organization. I train educators and others about social and emotional learning, i.e., the process of acquiring foundational social emotional skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in school and life.
I was invited to the Foundations Weekend by a woman I met at a workshop who said it might be useful for my job. When the training began, I wondered if I were in a network marketing meeting, which I had experienced before and wasn’t interested in. But the content kept drawing me in. I was hearing about concepts that were already familiar to me, but were being presented differently and more deeply than what I was used to. I went home Friday night totally intrigued; by Saturday night I had signed up for the Year of Transformation.
What I realized in the Training was that it was about my work on one level; but it was so much more about my life. I was being exposed to an opportunity to learn how to live life more fully, to become more of the person that I envisioned myself to be. The fact that the content would inform my job so directly was a bonus.
Following the Foundations Weekend, I jumped into the Wright experience with both feet, and feel so fortunate to have found it. In less than a year every aspect of my life has been positively impacted by what I’m learning at Wright. I am absolutely on a journey of personal transformation – I am discovering who I am, what is necessary for me to become the best version of myself, and how to use that self to make a difference it the world. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
