Lifespring was founded
in 1974 by John P. Hanley, Sr., Ph.D., and quickly grew to
become one of the most successful experiential educational
movements in modern history. In many ways, Dr. Hanley
pioneered a movement which has revolutionized and continues
to revolutionize the ways in which individuals and institutions
think and learn. As a professional entity, Lifespring existed
until 2000, and Dr. Hanley now works in the corporate environment
furthering the work of experiential education. Lifespring
technology and techniques have been incorporated worldwide
by numerous companies and professional expressions. Certified
Lifespring trainers continue to offer trainings in various
formats across the globe.
The Lifespring trainings were
designed to help participants become aware of new possibilities
in their lives such that they could take action in unprecedented
ways to stand for what they valued. Through the various
trainings designed by Lifespring, participants were given
the chance to become aware of how deeply their perceptions
and beliefs influenced their emotions and behavior, such that
they could effectively recognize newer and greater possibilities
for their lives.
The trainings were based on the
notion that something experienced can be learned much more
rapidly and effectively than something presented by lecture
or book format alone. The overwhelming success of this educational
method has been proven effective again and again as experiential
education continues to be embraced around the world.
