Resilient: Cultivating an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, & Happiness Workshop

May 26, 2018, 10:00 am - 4:30 pm PDT

$75 – $200

Rick Hanson, Ph.D. will facilitate an all-day workshop at Spirit Rock Meditation Center based on his recently released book, Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness (March 2018).

The world is volatile and unreliable. So it’s vital to develop durable psychological resources such as grit, gratitude, and compassion: the inner core that remains unshaken no matter what life brings. This is true resilience, the foundation of lasting well-being in a changing world and at the heart of the Buddhist idea of equanimity.

We’ll explore:

  • Why suffering arises due to craving, and why craving arises due to a sense of deficit and disturbance in the meeting of our needs.
  • How to use positive neuroplasticity to grow inner resources like calm and confidence to soothe, ease, and replace old pain.

Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways that improve patient/client care. Continuing Education (CE) credit is available.
