Sowing the seeds of emotional intelligence
Open Path has created a library of helpful, easy-to-use online wellness courses for people looking to gain greater self-awareness and emotional resiliency. We’re proud of what we’ve assembled, and we’d like to share this work with as many therapy clients as possible. In an effort to give back to our mental health community, we offer unlimited access to our coursework for only $79 per mental health clinician. After signing up, the therapist is emailed a license key. This code can then be given to an unlimited number of interested clients. Each client will have their own unique account where they can work on the material as they see fit.
Our courses offer students the tools necessary to live more balanced lives, while cultivating healthier relationships with their friends, coworkers, and loved ones. Using evidence-based approaches and tested outcome measures, our coursework integrates educational and mindfulness-based principles to build psychological resilience.

Open Path’s Three Pillars
Three pillars define Open Path’s Wellness Solutions’ philosophy and guide our course design:
A Strong Emphasis on Science
Advances in brain-imaging technology have ushered in a new cultural awareness of how our brains affect our lives and relationships. We believe, in accordance with evidence-based research, that a basic understanding of the neurological underpinnings of our emotional landscape help students build self-resilience. All of our courses begin with a scientific exploration of the subject we are addressing, and we translate that knowledge base into strategies for modifying problematic behaviors. We see our newfound knowledge of how our brains and nervous systems function as an extremely optimistic development in helping students shape healthy patterns and behaviors, and we communicate this optimism throughout our coursework.
Allegiance to Mindfulness Awareness Practice
Open Path operates from a belief that paying attention to our minds, our bodies, and our experiences is one of the first foundations to creating resiliency from within. A deeper, clearer, conscious understanding of our thought patterns and behaviors allow us to develop healthier ways of being in the world. We create courses that consistently ask students to slow down, pay attention, and become curious about their experience and how it affects their lives. What is it to live in the present and what is the point? In a non-dogmatic, invitational way, we ask students to actively explore these questions.
We ask our students to own the material in our courses by taking written and physical exercises designed to provoke awareness of unhealthy patterns and offer ways to reset, reshape, and revitalize. Through journaling exercises, evidence-based, brain-based learning techniques, and instructional online videos, students are introduced to a world that may have remained in sight, but just out of reach until now. We are acutely aware that resilience-based learning improves academic performance and Open Path makes it our primary goal to help students achieve a strong level of emotional well-being.
