COST: $125

DATE: Fall 2020


Resilience has been defined as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress.

Resilience is NOT a personality trait, it’s not something you adopt. Resilience requires a practice (actual behaviors, thoughts and actions). Fundamentally being resilient is something we learn to do. Let’s call it learned resilience, or even better ‘earned’

resilience…requiring time and intentionality


Be your primary constituent

  • Connection to others (allies and confidants)

  • Physical health & Emotional well-being

  • Compassion for self


Reflective practice

  • Be present

  • Be retrospective & prospective

  • Be self curious (Bennis -you need MORE info if you put this there)


The Serenity prayer

Scientific research shows that an increased number of things (events, occurrences, situations) that we cannot control contributes to poor emotional adjustment; making it more important that we are supple in identifying the things where we do have some control, and that we act on them accordingly to our values and preferred outcomes.


Developing a keen "controllability perspective requires time, practice, and honesty with self." What can I control (I will or will not wear a mask), where can I have influence (my spouse wearing  mask), what must I accept and appreciate as the way things are (The pandemic).
