The life philosophy | work | sport
of Barbara Edelston Peterson

PROJECT BE MOVED is a platform of educational programs, leadership training, networking, and life experiences encouraging awareness and movement of human brilliance and inspiration for a better world. We provide unique opportunities for individuals who aspire to live well, work hard, and make a positive difference in all ways.

Be Moved.

We are teachers and visionaries who care about moving human beings. We ourselves are inspired by the vastness of life, the massive need for positive social impact, and the miracles that occur when people are informed, energized, inspired, and moved. Our workshops, group presentations, seminars, training clinics, retreats, adventure travel, and expertise exists to energize brilliance, purpose, pursuit, performance, and provide solutions.

Each of our programs begins with the question, “What moves you?” We believein your answer because it reveals aspects of brilliance and energizes your potential for greater happiness, motivation, incentive, performance, fulfillment, and success.

We are committed to the exploration of what moves people, how movement positively effects important aspects of life, and how awareness elevates quality of life and even the impact we have on our surroundings. Are you aware of what moves you or how you move through life? Are you ready to move with us?

To Move The World, We Must First Move Ourselves.

Our Values

Movement awakens the body, opens the mind, and connects the spirit to heighten the experience of life.

Human brilliance, awareness, and a strengthened heart + sense of responsibility to self and others are powerful resources which create opportunities for growth and impact that leads to positive change.

Developing strength of character and owning conviction and responsibility are the underpinnings of empowerment, confidence, success.

Deep fulfillment lies in the connection between self-respect, integrity, sustained momentum, and making a difference for self and others.

Our Programs

Our programs consist of workshops, classes, leadership development, multi-day retreats, epic travel adventures, and private consulting sessions to plan, develop, and support your quest. We work with athletes, artists, scientists, philosophers, explorers, humanitarians, and many more. We know that positive generates positive, and energy builds energy. Move by move.
