HMHB helps kids helps themselves through practices in self-awareness, meditation, erasing negative emotions, and character education. HMHB curriculum has application and benefit beyond any one system such as traditional mindfulness models, law of attraction, positive psychology, TM (Transcendental Meditation), Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Hatha Yoga, or QT (Quiet Time). 

THE PROBLEM WORTH SOLVING: Negative emotions are public enemy number one on the planet, as they are the root of all pain and suffering.

Our solution:Our tools and practices effectively erase negative emotions at the root, permanently, and allow people to consciously evolve all on their own.

Special projectS:  There's some special projects & properties we've had our eye on. For example, there is a shut-down school in Ventura country we'd like to renovate, as well as a large piece of property in Casitas Springs that can be used as an incredible retreat & learning center. Each of these projects have a varying range of investment. We are in contact with the people in charge of these properties, and can get more exacting financials easily. We would need approximately $2-3 Million for each project.
