This workshop has been cancelled.

Sometimes we are uncertain about what to do in a difficult or challenging situation. In this workshop, guided by experts in resilience, we learn how to master the art of accomplishing anything in any situation, circumstance, and condition.

We explore how to break through the paralysis that can occur when life brings us to our knees, understand how to make thoughtful decisions, keep our focus on what we want to achieve, and leverage each moment as an opportunity to live our lives to the fullest.

Through lectures, experiential exercises, and group discussions, we find out how to navigate challenges in the areas of professional reputation, financial hardship, legal issues, job loss, health concerns, relationships, divorce, loss of a loved one, and other life situations.

We return home with greater awareness of the options available to us and methods to handle some of life’s greatest struggles with ease, clarity, and understanding.
