The world is increasingly volatile and uncertain, so we need to develop psychological strengths such as grit, gratitude, and compassion. This unshakable core is the essence of resilience and the foundation of lasting well-being in a changing world. During this workshop, we’ll explore how to use modern neuroscience informed by ancient contemplative wisdom to turn everyday experiences into powerful inner strengths hardwired into your own nervous system. You will be introduced to effective ways to steady the mind, cool stress and reactive emotions, communicate resiliently, and heal from past painful experiences. We will also discuss research-based nutritional neurochemistry. As you train your brain in these ways, you’ll meet the next moment feeling already centered in happiness, love, and peace. This workshop is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions.
