The Science & Practice of Resilience Workshop

March 30, 2018, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm PDT

$115 – $159

This day-long workshop with Rick Hanson, Ph.D. for the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley is about developing lasting resilience using the power of positive neuroplasticity.

Mental resources like determinationself-worth, and kindness are what make us resilient: able to cope with adversity and push through challenges in the pursuit of opportunities. While resilience helps us recover from loss and trauma, it offers much more than that. True resilience fosters well-being, an underlying sense of happiness, love, and peace. Remarkably, as you internalize experiences of wellbeing, that builds inner strengths which in turn make you more resilient. Wellbeing and resilience promote each other in an upward spiral.

The key to developing lasting resilience is knowing how to turn passing experiences into lasting inner resources built into your brain. This is what Rick calls positive neuroplasticity.

At this full-day workshop, Rick will outline his unique, step-by-step program for growing the inner strengths of true resilience, and hardwiring them into the brain.

You will learn that:

  • Resilience is for every day of your life, not just for surviving the worst day of your life.
  • Resilience comes from having inner strengths such as grit, motivation, and compassion.
  • Resilience is not static – you either have it or you don’t – but in fact something you can develop.
  • Resilience fosters well-being and well-being fosters resilience, in a wonderful upward spiral.

The workshop is also available via live webcast. Register here.
