The IIWE Framework

Home / SDGs

Positive Well-Being is the science of human flourishing.

There is evidence that Positive Well-Being is a good indicator of people's and populations' abilities to function well and thrive.

The IIWE Framework

A Measurable Approach

We created the IIWE framework based on the science of Positive Well-Being, including its three aspects of well-being and nine transformational inner capacities or skills integrated with ancient wisdom and practices. We aim to help people flourish and live purposeful, sustainable, and productive lives.

The IIWE Framework was developed over a decade of R&D which included working directly with thousands of people from all over the world to assist them in overcoming challenges, fostering inner growth, and thriving. The IIWE Framework is fundamental in achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
