Find out how to creatively Age?

In my twenties I co-founded an organization called Creative Aging. Not much has changed in the last 35 years  – people are still not excited about growing older.

Training The Therapist

THDC will soon begin to open our doors for qualified coaches, counselors, psychologists, and psychotherapists. A comprehensive certification program will teach professionals to integrate the Continuum Theory into their work and credential them to teach the theory and HDC programs in schools, colleges, corporations, and fitness centers.

National School Program

Emotional Intelligence EI curriculum program for grades 3 to 12. The course applies the tenets of the Continuum Theory of human development and focuses on Awareness – Envisioning – Communication – Unconditional Behavior. The program benefits a child’s self-esteem, as well as school performance and home life.

Our Books

THDC has undertaken the publishing of a series of books based on the Continuum Theory’s applications. Their purpose is to enrich our ability to love unconditionally, to parent effectively, to age powerfully, and reach our life goals in a remarkably effective and unique way.

National Relationship Fitness Program

This innovative program continues the progress that fitness clubs have shown with regard to meeting the needs of their members. In addition to merely having fitness equipment and trainers, fitness clubs today offer nutritious foods and snacks, yoga, meditation, talks and workshop in order benefit the whole person. The one area fitness clubs have not addressed is what we call “Relationship Fitness.”
