What You’ll Learn In This Webinar
If you are feeling stress, worry, or anxiety as the new school year gets underway, you are not alone. In the face of adversity, trauma, and threats to our wellbeing, we react with a flood of emotions, triggering a sense of uncertainty and fear. How can we calm our nervous system down and build our inner resilience? In this webinar, we’ll explore approaches to cultivating resilience through connectedness with others and variations that reflect personal and cultural differences. You’ll leave with greater peace of mind and the capacity to re-center in the present moment, strengthening your ability to move from surviving to thriving.
