Healing and Discovery Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its mission is to inspire, grow, and empower youth to triumph over adversity with techniques that are sustainable and useable throughout their lives. We empower students, parents, teachers and professionals of all ages by teaching them a unique mindfulness tool, The Paradox Process (TM), designed to identify, communicate, and change negative feelings, perceptions and beliefs.
Young people are especially vulnerable to neglected emotional education and negative feelings, which impact an individual’s anxiety levels, creativity, self-esteem, relationships, and academic performance. Healing and Discovery Foundation, Inc. is working to change the conversation about feelings by making emotional education the norm, and equipping young people and the adults in their lives with an understanding of feelings and practical methods to manage them.
Because we believe that a person’s pursuit of their goals should not be inhibited by misunderstood or mismanaged feelings, Healing and Discovery envisions a world where every individual has access to emotional education. Our goals are to equip young people with 1) an understanding of their feelings, 2) practical methods to manage their feelings through our mindfulness curriculum, and 3) to change the conversation about emotional education so that mastering your feelings is considered as commonplace and critical as mastering reading, writing and math.
