Self-Reg Journey Haven

Why & Why Now?

Licensing represents the culmination of years of work by The MEHRIT Centre in our effort to fulfill the dream of seeing Shanker Self-Reg® thriving in communities around the world while also protecting the integrity of the intellectual property and ensuring that we can elevate the voices of our trusted community members.

Is It Right for Me?

  • Are you interested in using your Self-Reg knowledge to help others in your community? 
  • Are you interested in bringing Self-Reg ideas into your current work and helping those you work with?
  • Are you interested in helping to spread the word about Shanker Self-Reg® in your community or context?
  • Do you have a unique perspective or context that could benefit from your Self-Reg knowledge?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then we may just have a licensing journey for you.

Licensing & the Four Self-Reg Journeys

Self-Reg Journey Haven


Stuart Shanker & The MEHRIT Centre

As the Founder & Visionary of Shanker Self-Reg®, Dr. Stuart Shanker and his organization The MEHRIT Centre (TMC) are the Self-Reg Haven tier.

TMC is the hub of Self-Reg knowledge and resources that leads by example and guides licensees through their Self-Reg licensing journeys. All other licensing requests will be grouped into the three other Self-Reg Journeys: Seeds, Sunrise & Quilt (see below).

Self-Reg Journey Seeds
