Joy-based relational skill training for thriving relationships!
What makes thrive special?
THRIVEtoday has the vision to develop the capacity of leaders, pastors, counselors, teachers, and ministers, not just improve their tools. THRIVE is created to build these skills and encourage health in all people.
4 Relational Skills Training Tracks
THRIVEtoday offers four skill training tracks that grow in complexity. Each Track starts with a 5-day event where you experience hands-on training that teaches you skills to practice with your training partner for an entire year, so you will be prepared for the next Track.

Thrive: True Identity retrains your brain focusing on:
- Eating: using food to build my joy.

- Praying: interacting with Immanuel (God with us).
- Belonging: keeping relationships bigger.
- Playing: adding play to my life and relationships.
- Giving: giving from the heart Jesus gave me.
Learn How to Share Joy
Joy and Rest – The starting point for partners.
*Online courses are required.
It is important to recognize that the first year of training in joy and quiet can make people quite aware of the missing love and attachment in their lives. We purposely do not try to provide or create temporary bonds and relationships at THRIVEtoday to fill this need. Our goal is to strengthen existing bonds, so bring someone with you! Building joy can trigger pain if you recently experienced loss or feel lonely.
Track One Required Preparation (to be completed prior to attendance):
Recommended (but optional) preparation:
return to joy skills from negative emotions
Here you discover how the painful failure to thrive impacts your life and relationships. Failure to thrive means lives spent in pain, fleeing pain, or rigidly avoiding any risk of pain.
“Living with Men” – This is provided and will be mailed to you after you register for Course 2.
Mastering Joy & Rest Exercise Guide – Provided upon completion of Track 1Recommended (but optional) preparation:
how to pass on the skills to others
Three is our favorite track because it ties together all of the previous skill training, once you discover brilliant solutions to pain. At Track Three, learn how to clearly recognize and address the painful deficits that result from a desynchronized control center.
Training focuses on how to pass on the skills to others, how to enhance your nonverbal skills and how to distinguish and resolve specific pain at each of the five levels of the brain’s command center. At Track Three, you not only practice the 19 skills but you train attendees in Tracks One and Two.
Track Three is for individuals who function primarily at an adult level maturity or higher. We carefully designed THRIVE Training to prepare attendees for this level of training after two years of actively building joy, practicing return to joy skills with the big six as well as complex emotions. Your THRIVEtoday Facilitator will train you in mindsight, heart-sight, resolving the five levels of pain, and more.
Track Three Required Preparation (to be completed prior to attendance):
