Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
How is it possible that the worst moments in life, when seen through an appreciative lens, can become the seeds for the greatest growth and even, in some cases, a deeper capacity for joy or peace? And why might positivity be exactly what is needed in the darkest times in order to survive those times well…even as happiness is the last expected approach? We explore these questions, integrating story and poetic wisdom with the science of positivity psychology to craft a rich understanding of resilience that is applicable to our daily lives, no matter how hard they may be. Attendees will leave with data to support the application of practical tools and perspectives, providing us a greater skillfulness in crafting our days such that we experience rising, even in the presence of our suffering.
