Lesson Library

Each lesson below contains a section for teens, kids, and littles and is backed by the latest academic research and the world’s wisdom traditions.

Use them in a 20-minute weekly sit-down, at mealtime or bedtime, or in an impromptu moment during the day. We add one new lesson, game, activity, or set of wisdom tales per week. Follow our weekly Thursday emails to see what’s new.

Those who want to follow a set program can see our 2022 calendar program, which uses nature’s rhythms to organize a year’s worth of selected lessons from the lesson library below. (The Uplift annual membership gets you access to this full library + the program.)

We recommend starting each lesson with a simple ritual that works for your family — lighting a candle, saying a prayer, singing a song, etc. For more insights, see how to guide an Uplift lesson, which includes a lesson on getting started.
