Conscious Discipline Institute
Join Conscious Discipline Master Instructor Kim Hughes in Columbia, SC July 19-25 for Session B: Institute Satellite.

For over a decade, thousands have been inspired by immersing themselves in the power of Conscious Discipline at our annual Institutes. This seven-day professional development event is not your average workshop. It’s an interactive experience that breathes life into the concepts and principles of Conscious Discipline with real examples, real practice and real connections. Discover the tools you need to break down barriers and experience lasting change.
Here's What You'll Learn:
Learn and experience the transformational skills, powers and structures of Conscious Discipline in an interactive, brain-smart environment.
Brain State Model

Explore the powers needed to change your perception of conflict and help you gain control of life – and how to impart them to adults and children.
Be part of a living School Family throughout this event and learn how to foster a caring, cooperative environment that uses daily life to build character and social skills.
More Information About This Event
Who Should Attend?
The Institute is a transformational experience for attendees at all levels of Conscious Discipline knowledge and implementation. If you’re just starting out, this is the perfect place to begin. If you’ve attended a Conscious Discipline workshop, completed the book study or are already an active practitioner, you’ll sharpen your skills and leave with renewed focus and practical tools.
The more knowledge you have about Conscious Discipline before you attend, the richer your Institute experience will be, and it’s not uncommon for alumni attendees to return to Institute to deepen their knowledge and accelerate implementation with new tools and learnings.
The difference between other Conscious Discipline training and the Institute is similar to the difference between taking a science class and then taking the science lab. The Institute is a hands-on, interactive “lab” experience. You will be part of an active School Family for a week, feel the sense of safety and connection it creates, and allow the information to move from your intellect to your heart. This integrative experience is indeed life-changing. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend, regardless of your previous training with Conscious Discipline!
