A healthier environment, wiser culture and more peaceful global community -- these possibilities rest in the hands of our youth. Their well-being concerns us all.

At Creative Lives we are working to help children thrive -- to realize their unique potential for learning, contribution and fulfillment. Our work extends to their primary learning communities (homes and schools), and to the natural world which supports us all.

We have discovered a powerful road map for actualizing this vision -- Ellen Tadd's Framework for Wise Education. Based on her book "The Wisdom of the Chakras," Tadd's Framework yields astonishing results--not only for young people, but for the parents and teachers who serve them.



Becoming Fully Ourselves

"When I became a student of Ellen Tadd in 1997, I knew I was embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. For more than 17 years her understandings have helped me navigate my life and realize my dreams for a whole-systems approach to education -- a system that considers and fosters each person's unique potential and purpose.

Tadd's understandings are universal -- they apply to all children, parents and educators -- in all situations. Her approach, based on her practical understanding of the human energy system, or chakra system, is intrinsic to each of us and is waiting, like a map for buried treasure, to be explored and utilized in becoming our best."  Maureen Burford, Director

Adventures in Parenting

In April, we begin a new program for parents and elementary age children in collaboration with THE FAMILY PLACE in Norwich, VT.

Adventures in Parenting: Addressing Root Causes of ADD and ADHD builds on our success in helping children learn Framework for Wise Education strategies that support focus, concentration, good decision making, and success at school -- without the need for drugs. 

Adventures in Parenting begins Wednesday, April 6 in Norwich, VT.
