Genius often comes from finding a new perspective.

In 1975, Patricia Rose Upczak started a highly successful integrated program for learning disabled adolescents in Boulder, Colorado. After teaching for twenty-three years, she retired in order to write books, teach workshops, facilitate conferences and offer retreats for teachers and writers in the secluded Rocky Mountains and founded Synchronicity Publishing. Her company works to enlighten the spirit of the individual through the publication of books as well as through the presentation of conferences, workshops and trainings.


Watch the “Six Thinking Hats” by Edward de Bono in action:

Ms. Upczak’s philosophy can be summed up in two quotes:

“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The teacher as a person is more important than the teacher as a technician. What he (or she) is has more effect than anything he does.” – Jack Canfield
