Learn how awe and gratitude can be utilized to facilitate healing, renewal, and transformation toward positive personal and social action in this online, one-day program.
We will examine the science behind how multifaceted layers of awe and gratitude can help make us more resilient to stress, depression, and anxiety, help us resolve conflict more positively and quickly, strengthen the nervous system, and change our primary relationships for the better.
This experiential program aims to retrain each of us to take in the beauty around us, and create space for sustainable renewal. We will learn techniques for managing cycles of rupture and repair in order to build more resilient and robust primary relationships. We will also focus on the importance of connection to our bodies and nature in healing ourselves, and our communities.
Trainees will come away with tools for personal and professional use in clinical, community, and educational settings.
