This accessible, user-friendly platform benefits people at the most vulnerable times in their lives when they are grappling with a wide range of challenges such as illness, trauma, grief, and the implications of living through a global pandemic.
Soaringwords collaborates with municipalities, health and human service agencies, community organizations, and companies to create substantive change.
No other organization has amassed such an extensive lineup of leaders in the field of Positive Psychology in one comprehensive initiative.
Our goal is impact – the greatest impact possible. To that end, we have developed a number of powerful programs based on our SOARING into Strength Model which has been presented at 16 scientific conferences around the world.
Since 2000, Soaringwords’ interventions have been shared with more than 500,000 people. The SOARING into Strength Positive Health Initiative includes 23 virtual workshops led by Soaringwords’ CEO & Founder Lisa Buksbaum, integrating the latest science from leading Positive Psychology experts who are featured in each session.
After three life-changing encounters with death and illness occurred in Soaringwords’ CEO & Founder’s family in the span of ten months, Lisa Honig Buksbaum knew that she had to do something to help millions of ill children, families, and adults to “Never give up!”
One day while walking along the ocean during the height of her son’s catastrophic illness, she had a calling and heard the name “Soaringwords.”
Suddenly, she knew why she was born and was determined to create an organization to provide healing tools that could bolster the physical, emotional, and mental well-being for people facing challenges.
Since she was a child, Lisa wanted to help. Whether it was rescuing a blind duck at a park or defending her younger brother against bullying when he experienced severe asthma attacks—Lisa always found herself in the role of a helper during times of crisis.
As an adult, a phone call at four o’clock in the morning launched a trifecta of trauma that changed Lisa’s life forever. Three experiences with death and illness occurred in her family in just 10 months. Her beloved brother died suddenly of an asthma-induced heart attack, her father was battling lymphoma, and her son became catastrophically ill. When her family’s world imploded, Lisa felt as if she had become irrevocably damaged.
Instead, she discovered her calling during a sunrise walk along the beach at the height of her son’s illness. Lisa heard the word “Soaringwords,” and suddenly knew why she was born. She channeled her passion and resilience into a global movement that would inspire millions of people to never give up.
Her lifetime of experiences helping others through trauma, grief, illness, and setbacks—combined with her own personal experiences—led her to found Soaringwords, a not-for-profit organization with the mission of inspiring children, families, adults, seniors, and health care professionals to take active roles in self healing to experience greater physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Today, Lisa is an internationally recognized Positive Psychology thought leader.
