research projects

Our research interests include love, passion, peak experience, flow, hope, creativity, peak performance, positive leadership, positive youth development, cultural evolution, and the impact of new technologies on developmental trajectories. We are passionate about cross-cultural qualitative research, and finding out which positive psychology applications, programs, and interventions work for whom, when, and in what context.

In 2013 we embarked on a research trip that took us to 22 countries on six continents. We conducted 150 in-depth interviews from the Navajo Nation to the wild of Southern Africa to the islands of Fiji on the subjects of love, passion, and peak experience. Our findings were published in The Journal of Positive Psychology, and presented in a feature length film, North of Normal, provided below.  We are continuing our research in this area.

community partnerships

We work with community based organizations and schools who wish to amplify their reach and impact with limited resources. We partner with community leaders, education leaders, and boards to identify and apply for suitable grants that could fund their community development initiatives. Additional services include advice, capacity building, workshops, and other activities designed to strengthen and enrich a community. 

We are currently exploring partnerships with a number of community organizations in the Hawaiian Islands. We would be delighted to hear from other community based organizations and schools who are interested in partnering with us.

North of Normal


North of Normal


IN 2013, we embarked on a research trip, that took us to 22 countries on six continents. We asked 150 diverse people:

What do you love?
What is your greatest passion?
What has been a peak experience in your life?

Our trek took us to six continents and 22 countries.  We conducted 150 in-depth interviews over the span of seven months, from the Navajo Nation to the wild of Southern Africa to the islands of Fiji. Our interviews and observations were compiled into a feature-length movie called North of Normal. Our purpose in making the documentary was to translate rigorous, in-context, qualitative research into an accessible blend of science and art. 

Feel free to share the film for personal purposes via email or social media. If you would like to show the film for academic or business purposes, please contact us at director@liveinflowconsulting.com.
