Discovering the Neuroscience of Wellbeing
By tapping into the innate neuroplasticity of the brain to reduce stress, regain equilibrium, and restore perspective and resilience, we can avoid compassion fatigue and burnout and recover the rejuvenating creativity and flow of our work. In this experiential workshop, you’ll learn empirically validated techniques to calm the nervous system, come to clarity and discernment in decision-making, heal toxic shame, retire the inner critic, revive a sense of competency and connection with others, and cultivate the courage to take growth-enhancing risks in your life. You’ll leave with a toolkit that includes:
- Doable micro-practices involving exercise, sleep, nutrition, learning, play, and social interactions that foster brain health
- Ways to access positive emotions—gratitude, kindness, joy—to counterbalance the brain’s negativity bias and build resources for resilient coping
- How to turn regrettable moments into teachable moments that transform mistakes and losses into opportunities for enhancing learning and resilience
