Training Services

Dr. Dennis Embry, president of PAXIS and it’s senior scientist, delivers keynote addresses for organizations, governments, businesses, universities, and other entities. Dr. Embry is a dynamic speaker who inspires people for action to protect our communities, schools, families, and neighborhoods for the future using powerful, proven strategies. He often presents with major colleagues on important challenges of the day. 

Speaking Engagements

Our consultation services are about helping others create effective solutions to increase PAX (Peace, Productivity, Health and Happiness) in political jurisdictions, governmental programs or services, scientific projects on new problems, non-governmental organizations, as well as private entities.

Consultation Services & Licensing

We have multiple training efforts and are constantly developing other partners. The aim of our trainings is for the people to leave with practical tools they can use the very next day. That is not enough, though. We also want participants to understand the multiple layers of science for those practical tools, how to be an “everyday scientist” of the effects and processes, so that they can adapt or innovate for continuous improvement, and become part of a larger learning community to grow the knowledge, practice, and success.
