"I’m no longer afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship". ~Louisa May Alcott


No matter how you may have been impacted by stress and difficulties in the past, you can learn new and creative ways to navigate the twists and turns of life more flexibly and resiliently now.

In this weekend workshop you will:

  • Learn practical exercises to help you learn to use the power of positive emotions to put the brakes on negativity, broaden your perspectives, and create a “left shift” in your brain toward more optimism and exploration.
  • Cultivate the mindful awareness that can help you reflect on your experience, shift perspectives, discern options and choose actions wisely. 
  • Strengthen the resonance circuit in your brain that allows you to connect skillfully and intimately with others.
  • Practice the self-compassion that leads to genuine self-acceptance and self-care. 
  • Not only get through hard times but thrive in their midst.

Through exercises imaginative designed to help you rewire your brain, you’ll learn to harness the neuroplasticity innate in your own brain that encodes the learning of new capacities, immediately and permanently. You’ll  leave the workshop with new skills to chart your course with confidence across the great seas of life.
