Pacia Life was founded with the intention and passion to fill a gaping void in the education, life skills, grit, resiliency and personal needs for emerging young adults.
The informal beginnings of Pacia Life began in 2007 and kept building over time until it was necessary to expand services and open additional locations in 2013.
At Pacia Life, we aim to assist in answering life’s questions from both parents and their children. Who shows emerging young adults how emotional regulation and integrity are tied together to create ‘grit’? Who teaches us how solution focused thinking works in the real world? Who teaches us how to be more effective in our academic courses? Who teaches us how to manage our money instead of it managing us? Who teaches our young adults about resiliency in real life when there is not a parental safety net anymore? Who teaches our young adults how to select a proper significant other and close friends and how important these people are to our overall success in life? Who teaches you to work on your body and mind together, so you are operating at top performance, getting more done in less amount of time? Who teaches you to be more productive at work, how to build a network of contacts or to build a business or to obtain wealth? Who teaches you to expand your mind or intuition or to live a life with meaning and fulfillment? Who teaches our young adults to stop living in a reactionary state of life and how to access conscience engineering, living with intention and life mapping?
