THE MODEL

EMPOWERMENT EDUCATION

Based on a social-ecological framework and Dr. John Travis’s Wellness Wheel, the EE Model includes principles pertaining to the Self, Empowered Partnership, Community Collaboration, World Sustainability and Peace, and the Universal Field. 
All 5 levels are focused on and integrated when shifting into a healthy and empowering system of learning and educating students. 

4 Pillars of Empowerment Education

Wellness

The continual process of developing, practicing, and balancing 11 life-enhancing dimensions in order to thrive rather than attempting to minimize conditions of illness just to survive.

EMpowerment

An internal process of positively influencing your own thinking, feeling and behaviors to move through challenges with resilience taking personal responsibility to attract what you need to feel safe, significant, loved and successful.

Leadership

Becoming more accepting of yourself as you take action towards your goals, while authentically modeling, expressing, collaborating and enrolling others in a positive vision for yourself, your relationships, your community and your world.

Legacy

Unleashing and sharing your core purpose, passions, values, and talents to bring personal fulfillment, appreciation and joy to your life and others, in the present moment in fun and inspiring ways.

THE SHIFT

Empowerment EDUCATION Principles

THE OLD PARADIGM - R>S>P

In the old unhealthy and disempowering paradigm, the system and rules dictate what skills everyone learns. The skills are then taught in a vacuum and are prioritized over the individual person’s talents, needs and motivations. The person is virtually invisible.  This is the fastest way to high levels of boredom, lack of focus, misbehavior, avoidance, quitting, sickness and a bad attitude.

THE NEW PARADIGM - P>S>R

In the healthy and empowering paradigm, the principles put the person truly at the core of learning, and the skills reflect the needs, goals and passions of each student. The system and rules are a reflection of the needs and desires of each person and their community.  This is the fastest route to high levels of creativity, innovation, engagement, health, well-being and fulfillment.
