The founders of Journey’s Dream have invested more than one million dollars of private funding to design, develop and implement a state-of-the-art, multimedia educational experience called the Optimal Being® program. The core idea of the 14-week program is that human beings are innately brilliant.  Through an interactive, innovative online platform, the Optimal Being® program delivers practical tools that guide participants to fully access their intuitive guidance system and align with their inner brilliance. Upon completion of the program, participants report greater mental and emotional clarity, higher levels of trust in self and others, stronger connections, reduced stress, and increased joy and productivity.

To get a brief sense of the tools offered by  the full program, we are providing a free self-paced “mini-course”.

The Program

The Results

Initial results of the Optimal Being® program inform us that there is hope for restored wellness. Here are  some examples:
• 92% improvement for participants’ #1 challenge
• 87.8% improvement for participants’ #2 challenge
• Participants experienced double digit improvement in all 10 categories
• Personal mentoring and peer support provide a framework for ongoing success



Society is best served by collaboration among people and organizations with similar visions, bringing all the best resources to solve global issues. Our founders developed the Optimal Being program as a scalable model to support a global audience. This allows us to use the program in collaboration with foundations who support mental health for vulnerable populations, such as the following:.

Those Diagnosed with Serious Mental Illness

According to NAMI, approximately 1 in 25 adults in the U.S. (11.2 million) experiences a serious mental illness in a given year that substantially interferes with or limits major life activities. Approximately 1 in 5 youth aged 13–18 experiences a serious mental disorder at some point during their life. The Optimal Being program was built on the foundational tools that supported Journey’s Dream co-founder, Mark Hattas, in sustaining full recovery from Bipolar I Disorder. We are partnering with other experts in the mental health field to bring this program to the millions who suffer with mental illness today.

Survivors of Human Trafficking

The trafficking and trade of humans is one of the greatest tragedies in our world today. There are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking. We are bringing light to this darkness in our society, and restoration to those who have experienced its atrocities. In partnership with with experts in the field, Journey’s Dream offers the Optimal Being program for adults who’ve been liberated from human trafficking.


According to the 2018 US census, there are 18 million veterans. Over 40,000 of them are homeless on any given night. On average one veteran completes suicide every day. (National Coalition for Homeless Veterans). Society’s ineffective response to veterans’ suffering is unconscionable. Veterans, service members and their family’s need a tool set that empowers them and illuminates a path forward. In collaboration with other veteran support organizations, Journey’s Dream provides this tool set through our Optimal Being program.
