Presented by Jennifer Begley and Tom Stearns, PhD., CMC/DH Resilient Living Team
Ongoing stress has a negative effect on health, happiness, and relationships. Resilience is the ability to adapt well to stress and to even thrive amidst adversity. In this workshop, you’ll learn why and how your brain and mind work so hard to keep you stressed and everyday exercises to train your attention and interpretations with the intention of decreasing stress and enhancing resilience and well-being. Through four weekly sessions we will dig more deeply into the following areas:
- Varieties and practice of attention training and mindfullness
- Evolving understanding of how our brain/mind works and how that informs practices that build well-being
- How to increase day-to-day positive experience and “take in the good”
- Enhancing capacities that foster positive interactions and connections with others
- Facilitating a sense of meaning in everyday life
- Sessions will include presentation of relevant content, small group discussion and reflection and the creation of personal plan to bring these practices into your daily life. As each session builds upon the previous one we strongly encourage participation in all sessions.
