Resilience: Bending Without Breaking

Even in the best of times, we can experience financial hardship, relationship difficulties, and health challenges. And then there are times when we get thrown into a storm of uncertainty and change.

In nature, we define resilience as the ability to bend without breaking. In human beings, it’s the amount of flexibility and adaptability we can call upon in any given situation.

Resilience is the capacity to encounter difficulty without getting lost in it. It gives us confidence and allows us to trust that change, stress, and loss won't destroy us—and that we can handle whatever comes our way. 

As much as we’d like to, we can’t insulate ourselves from misfortune. The paradox is that how well we do in life depends not on the number or severity of our hardships, but on how we meet those difficulties.

So, how do we meet the inevitable challenges of being human without breaking? 

The good news is that resilience is a skill that is developed. Through practice, you can bolster emotional flexibility, optimism, connection to your body, and a sense of purpose to become the courageous, resilient person you were meant to be!

In this class, you will learn:

  • What resilience is and how to build it
  • How to develop habits that increase perseverance
  • Practices to enhance emotional flexibility
  • Exercises for your optimism muscle
  • Practices to face your fears and turn them into strengths
  • How to discover and align with your meaning and purpose
