Shift Happens: Learning to Bounce Back from Disappointment and Difficulty

Dec 18 - 23, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Linda Graham

The ability to cope effectively with the challenges and crises of life is the core of our resilience and well-being. Developing flexible and adaptive strategies for dealing with everyday disappointments – even disasters – is the heart of any personal growth process.
Modern neuroscience illuminates how the brain encodes its strategies for coping in the first place, and informs how we can learn to use our own self-directed neuroplasticity to rewire new strategies that allow us to navigate the twists and turns of our lives with more courage and flexibility.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
