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

May 5, 2019, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

$75 – $200

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.

In this day retreat, 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.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.

Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public.
