Welcome to the Right Life Project.

We strive to support you in building and maintaining the most meaningful, fulfilling, and healthy life possible. The kind of life that comes from letting go of habits of thought or behavior that have held you in place and cultivating others that promote feelings of freedom and wellbeing. One in which your daily life, whether at home, work, or play, is aligned with who you are at your core—allowing you to thrive, not just survive.

Whether you're just here for interesting reading, or there are some areas of your life that you’d like to work on, or you’d like to make radical changes and don’t know where to begin, we hope you’ll find something that speaks to you.

Neurobiological research is providing an ever-growing body of evidence supporting long-standing psychological theories about the importance of attunement with others, especially in early life. A recent pilot study hints that the same types of connections you need to thrive as an infant and adult may also keep dementia at bay.
