Resilience is a built-in capacity in the human brain that helps us face, and cope with, challenges and crises that come with being human. Meanwhile, the practice of compassion - toward self and others - is a powerful agent of brain change as well; it helps to shift our responses from rumination and fear over our own, and the collective, human condition to a more empowering mind-state that enables positive action. Whether you’re facing an ongoing personal challenge or simply find yourself discouraged and overwhelmed by the state of the world, cultivating some simple resilience and compassion skills is a worthwhile investment in your emotional and physical health. This four-week short course will introduce you to user-friendly, accessible practices - involving movement, compassion-based meditation, and practical mindfulness skills - to nourish your inner resilience and capacity for compassion.
