Introduction to The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project

Awakening the Gifts Within

This in-person workshop will be held January 27 - 28, 2024 in Bethesda, Maryland (15 minutes from Washington, DC and 30 minutes from BWI, Ronald Reagan, and Dulles International Airports) 

Learn how to use The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project, a framework to inspire:

  • individuals to live more authentic and meaningful lives
  • families to raise children of compassion and integrity
  • educators to nurture¬†safe, compassionate, and thriving¬†learning communities
  • leaders to encourage excellence and appreciation in the workplace.

This framework has been honored by the United Nations as a model global program for families of all cultures.  Endorsed by the Dalai Lama, it has inspired and mobilized hundreds of thousands of people globally, equipping them with tools and strategies to be of service to humanity.


 As a result of this program, participants will develop skills based on the 5 Strategies of The Virtues Project including:

  1. Speaking the Language of Virtues to build trust, increase hope, improve communication, and strengthen wellbeing.
  2. Recognizing Teachable Moments to strengthen resiliency, self-esteem, accountability, and personal growth.
  3. Setting Clear Boundaries and utilizing Restorative Justice to create more functional relationships and teams.
  4. Honoring the Spirit to elevate well-being and deepen connection.
  5. Offering Companioning to empower others to find clarity and discern their own solution.

 Note: This 2-day session can be attended by itself or as a prerequisite to the 3-day Facilitator Training.
