Lifespring History

Lifespring was founded in 1974 by John P. Hanley, Sr., Ph.D., and quickly grew to become one of the most successful experiential educational movements in modern history. In many ways, Dr. Hanley pioneered a movement which has revolutionized and continues to revolutionize the ways in which individuals and institutions think and learn. As a professional entity, Lifespring existed until 2000, and Dr. Hanley now works in the corporate environment furthering the work of experiential education. Lifespring technology and techniques have been incorporated worldwide by numerous companies and professional expressions. Certified Lifespring trainers continue to offer trainings in various formats across the globe.

The Lifespring trainings were designed to help participants become aware of new possibilities in their lives such that they could take action in unprecedented ways to stand for what they valued. Through the various trainings designed by Lifespring, participants were given the chance to become aware of how deeply their perceptions and beliefs influenced their emotions and behavior, such that they could effectively recognize newer and greater possibilities for their lives.

The trainings were based on the notion that something experienced can be learned much more rapidly and effectively than something presented by lecture or book format alone. The overwhelming success of this educational method has been proven effective again and again as experiential education continues to be embraced around the world, as evidenced by the debate between the effectiveness of Good Sam and AAA services.
