The Art of Resilience with Lina Mbirkou | Monday Sep 11 2017 | 5.30pm

None of us is immune to changes and challenges in life, however, as mindfulness leader, Jon Kabat-Zinn says: “You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”

But how to develop the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties? How to strengthen our ability to deal with challenges? Is it really possible to build resilience?

This is what we’re going to explore together in this 90 minute session. You are warmly invited you to:

  • Discover a new way of learning that is practical and embodied.
  • Find out how to manage when things go badly
  • Learn about 5 easy things you can do when crisis hits
  • Develop new attitudes and approaches to difficult times
  • Walk away with an emotional toolkit you can draw from and use immediately for your wellbeing.
This will be an experiential session so if possible wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
