Workshop Details

Welcome to an experiential weekend of strengthening your inner resources and the natural resilience that supports your well-being and flourishing.
You’ll be taught more than a dozen tools and techniques drawn from the intersection of brain science, relational psychology, and mindfulness practices. These can help you reduce the impact of stress and trauma, deepen your self-compassion and self-awareness, and broaden perspectives, possibilities, and sense of purpose. The practical experiential exercises, guided meditations and visualizations, inquiry in dyads and small groups, and stimulating dialogue and discussion in large groups, will help you harness your own self-directed neuroplasticity to rewire your brain for maximum resilience and well-being. You can learn new and creative ways to navigate the twists and turns of life with more calm, courage, and flexibility.
Required reading: Graham, Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being.
Recommended reading: Hanson, Buddha’s Brain; Goleman, Social Intelligence.
