Sobras Institute is a private research
and teaching institute, founded by Kleopatra Ormos, M.D. in 2003 in Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The Institute offers
experiential workshops and private coaching about the effects of thoughts and emotions on professional performance, personal
efficiency, relationships, mood and identity. Our course participants learn to make lasting changes by developing
practical self-support skills of sustainable mental, emotional and physical well being even in highly streesful environments.
Sobras Institute aims to develop affordable, high quality educational
methods, which help in learning the kind of skills that are rarely taught in schools: first our students learn to achieve
their highest levels of mental and emotional efficiency. Then they learn how to maintain these
skills for the long term in the face of increasing complexity and stress.
"Sobras" comes from
the word "szobrasz", which means sculptor in Hungarian. We consider our students as artist scholars, who engage
in re-sculpting themselves in very specific ways: they learn to work with conditioned mental, emotional and behavioral habits
and how to change them. For these old habits, engrained sometimes by upbringing and other times by sub-optimal prior experiences,
most likely inhibit their professional progress and their personal satisfaction.
Through working on themselves
they leave no stones unturned: the new paradigms they build shall manifest in every aspect of their lives.
Sobras Institute recognizes
- the need to improve public health education
through promoting individual and corporate responsibility;
- the importance of a clean, sustainable, and safe environment for all
species of the ecosystem;
- each sentient being is an integral part of the whole universe: none could exist without
