iRise For Me


Does your mind feel like a pinball machine of bells and lights and chaos? It feels completely unpredictable and all of the sounds and visuals can be overwhelming and can feel out of control!

The good news is that we can re-program this pinball machine with mental fitness training - it's how we chill out the ping, zap, zoing, whoop” of our mind and create a place of calm and stillness.


Mental Fitness is based on the work of Shirzad Chamine. His book, “Positive Intelligence” lays out the research and framework for achieving high levels of Positive Intelligence or Mental Fitness. It is training just as you would train at the gym, for a marathon or even a new job. It takes more than reading or learning.


“Sustained transformational change requires 20% insight and 80% muscle building.”

Your brain is your frenemy


i Recognize. i Inform Myself. i Strategize. i Emerge. 


Truth is, your mind is the ultimate example of a “frenemy”. Most of us spend far more time interacting with the “enemy” side of our brain than the friend side. How do you know in each moment if you are in BFF mode or enemy mode? 


Shirzad Chamine and his groundbreaking research has developed an assessment to identify where we stand with our brain as friend or foe. He refers to this as a Saboteur Assessment.

Take The Assessment


The 7-week program builds a solid foundation of the PQ® Operating System. The formal program ends and yet, this is the beginning of the next phase. 

Just as Winter ends and Spring emerges, the iRise Mental Fitness journey both ends and begins. Upon completion of the 7 week program, you are ready to continue in different ways. This is where you really can tailor the program to your needs and your life! You can continue using the app, you can choose to access more in the app, and you can continue group or 1:1 coaching as some considerations.

Where can I use this PQ® Operating System in my Life? 

Consider what happens with planting one seed, it then develops an intricate root system, a trunk, branches, and leaves-all from one seed! Consider that PQ provides three seeds with the Sage exercises. And you nurture these seeds with repetition and application of the exercises. The PQ operating system allows you to keep growing and flourishing. PQ has limitless possibilities!


This is the beautiful thing about PQ. It is a simple framework with broad applications (think: chronic pain, health and wellness, stress management, happiness, leadership, parenting, conflict management, relationships, performance, and more) - most importantly, it has the ability to transform yourself and your life.
