Welcome to the Being Institute!

actively engaging across difference

I fundamentally believe in social change and that social change happens both through being in relationships with other people and primarily (based on the work that I do), my own self-work. So the questions that inspire my research are questions like, Who am I? How did I come to believe what I do about the world and how does what I believe align or misalign with who I want to be in the world?


who we are

We teach skills to increase awareness across differences, promote trust and collaboration, and maximize insights that come from different ways of viewing the world. Learn more about Dr. Sherry Watt, founder of The Being Institute.
