The University of Pennsylvania has defined Positive Psychology as: "The scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play."

Dr. Ryder is the Founder and President of the PSC. He is a thought leader in positive psychology and explains his perspective as the search for what gives us  VALUE in life.   Happiness usually lasts only a fleeting moment.  In contrast, when you discover how to feel valuable to yourself and/or others, you are able to maintain a positive flow of energy throughout your life and be empowered to contribute to your community.  This creates a cycle of desirable events between yourself and others promoting greater well being and progress.

This website is dedicated to become a major resource for the public of the practical skills, techniques and theories that help people apply the science of positive psychology to improving their life and the community around them.  So, do join us!

Below are our initial programs and events: Besides the growing online resources we will sponsor workshops, lectures, competitions, educational summits, etc.

The following is a list of programs that we are planning to sponsor in the near future.

The Imaginarium

The Imaginarium

This is a computerized virtual reality system that covers every surface of the room.  This allows the room to transform into any visual image, so when you walk into this cube you can be anywhere.  We intend to produce immersive experiences that transport the individual into another world to create a tremendous impact.  This is an entirely different level of virtual reality, both fun and amazing. The purpose is to explore what imagery will create the most positive and lasting health benefits for the observer. 


Refocus on Optimism - How to Keep the Glass Full?

This is a special program to reveal the best ways to keep your world optimistic and positive.  It will also define the differences between an attitude and a life style.  Learn what is most important beyond a good attitude to reach your goals and enjoy greater progress.

Manifesting Miracles

This is the process by which extremely unlikely events are truly realized although we often refer to them as miracles, in reality we can make them happen more often if we know how to set our mind to achieve these goals.

The key to manifesting miracles is to have a very clear idea of what you want to achieve, then develop a detailed specific strategic plan, and then get mobilized.  Every miracle begins in your mind.  First it is a thought, then it becomes a plan and then if everything else aligns it can become a reality.  This workshop is how to create and accomplish those special goals in your life.


 More details will be provided soon.
