Positive Neuroplasticity: How to Grow Resilient Self-Worth and Happiness

July 21, 2019, 8:00 am - July 26, 2019, 5:00 pm PDT

$675 – $6252

In these volatile times, it’s more important than ever to build an unshakable internal core of resilient, confident well-being. By growing the good inside and coming home to our true nature, we can find lasting happiness, self-worth and inner peace.

In this experiential workshop, you’ll use recent neuroscience findings to tap into and grow inner strengths like grit, gratitude, self-respect and compassion. Each day in the morning, you’ll learn effective ways to release anxiety, hurt and anger; to heal from past painful experiences; and to rest in an open-hearted happiness. In the afternoons, we’ll apply these methods of positive neuroplasticity to help increase confidence and self-worth.

Drawing from self-affirmation theory, you’ll be shown new tools to identify the many good things already inside you, let go of harsh self-criticism and feelings of inadequacy, and understand, accept and appreciate yourself. Throughout, we’ll apply these insights to important relationships in your life. You will learn how to be both appropriate and authentic, and both kind and assertive. As you deepen your sense of the good inside yourself, it’s easier to listen to others — and to grow the good together, in a wonderful upward spiral.
