Balanced Living: Reframing “Challenges” as “Growth Opportunities”

September 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - October 1, 2022 @ 10:30 am UTC-6


German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” Typically, however, we find ourselves retreating to a fantasy about our next beach vacation instead of reaching for the next challenge that ultimately will make us stronger, wiser, and more resilient. Jennifer will explore the synergy that occurs when we combine a growth mindset with mindfulness, meditation, and self-compassion practices. Participants will learn how our thought processes about challenging situations shape our emotional experiences, affect our stress levels, and influence our decisions, and how mindfulness practices help us remain present-centered during challenging times.
