See how 7 simple steps — taught online —
can improve your mental wellness in just a few minutes.

Stress doesn’t come from life directly. It comes from your thoughts about life.

Disruption is constant, and for most people it’s taking a toll.

The Resilience Academy is based on a simple but revolutionary premise: Stress doesn’t come from life directly. It comes from your thoughts about life.

On this site, you learn a new way to think — about relationships, body image, discrimination, social change, and more — with no jargon, stigma, or “touchy-feeliness.”

It’s not therapy or meditation (although it can complement both). It’s a simple 7-step technique that “flips a switch” in how you think, without your saying a word.

The result is greater peace of mind, and a renewed ability to lead change.

Experience this new approach for yourself.

When Resilience Academy founder Andy Bernstein was a teenager, his father and little sister died unexpectedly. Andy spent much of the next 20 years exploring self-help tools, including three years working closely with bestselling author Byron Katie.

In 2004, Andy created a new 7-step process called Active Insight™ that makes real breakthroughs simpler. Since then, he’s taught this at dozens of Fortune 500 companies, helping thousands of leaders live happier lives.

Now this toolkit is available online so it can help you.
