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.
