Mindfulness & Resilience: Developing Sustainability in Stressful Times
March 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm PST
Resilience is a key quality for dealing with stress of modern life. Mindfulness meditation and wisdom teachings have been taught for millennia to offer profound support to stay grounded amidst the challenges of life. Mindful awareness can help develop clarity and insight about the causes of inner and outer stress as well as how to work with them.
On this experiential day of meditation, reflection and inquiry we will explore mindfulness practice as a key support for resiliency. We will inquire as to what allows us to stay centered, responsive, and how to draw on the wise compassionate heart that lies within us all.
