Three Principles Living

Judith A. Sedgeman, EdD


This is a list of sites that I think will start a journey of discovery. There are hundreds of 3P sites and Facebook pages from around the world. These are key sites, but the list is a starting point, not meant to exclude or limit the value of any of the others.

Three Principles Foundation: This is the organization originally set up by Sydney Banks on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada, where the Syd Schools, which draw people from all over the world, take place.  It offers a rich array of original materials.

Three Principles Global Community (3PGC): a non-profit organization that is committed to bringing an understanding of The Three Principles to people globally. Links to Sydney Banks video and audio can be found here. It also provides a list of 3P Practitioners around the world and many valuable educational services to practitioners.

Elsie Spittle, Three Principles for Human Development: Elsie Spittle has been an internationally recognized trainer and consultant for over four decades. She is one of the few people who knew Sydney Banks, originator of the Three Principles, before he had his profound insight, and who stuck by him, despite her own early strong resistance.

Hawaii Counseling & Education Center: HCEC is one of the first Centers established for teaching and practice of the Three Principles.  Through the leadership of Christine Heath, its founder, it has trained many new practitioners as well as offering a broad selection of programs and services.

Pransky & Associates: This is a LaConner, Wa-based group founded by George and Linda Pransky, among the first psychologists to recognize the breakthrough significance of Sydney Banks’ work. It offers professional training on-site and on-line, and many other learning opportunities, as well as intensives and individual coaching. Dr. William F. Pettit Jr. is one of the earliest teachers of the Principles who brought this understanding into his practice of psychiatry exclusively shortly after meeting Sydney Banks in the early 1980s.  Dr. Pettit offers unique insights into the mind-body-spirit connection and the way the Principles inform current Neuroscientific research.   His wife, Linda Sandel Pettit, EdD, is a psychologist who is a powerful teacher and mentor in the Principles. They offer many programs, both on-line and individually.

Three Principles Institute: Mark Howard, PhD, has been a 3 Principles practitioner for nearly 40 years. He offers a variety of programs and services. Based in California, he has a global outreach through webinars and work online.

Joe Bailey & Associates: Joe Bailey is one of the first practitioners of the Principles. He specializes in substance abuse issues, but is also a teacher and mentor generally.

Ami Chen Coaching and Education: Roger Mills’ daughter, Ami, is a powerful educator and mentor regarding the spiritual nature of the Principles. Ami is working to bring the Principles alive in the Climate Change movement.

One Thought Institute: International training, on-line and in-person, for people pursuing understanding of the Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought.

One Solution Global: This organization is dedicated to bringing the Principles into some of the least peaceful places in the world to demonstrate how understanding the Principles can bring Peace, no matter what.

The Spark Initiative: A full-service Principles Center, its focus initiative is the S.P.A.R.K. Mentoring Curriculum, especially designed for at-risk youth, ages 6-22, and offered through schools.

Rebels for Peace: A group of young people in Chicago dedicated to sharing the Principles with their peers to eliminate violence and break the cycle of poverty and division.
