Publisher's summary

Do you ever wish you could just get rid of all of your problems?

Recent research shows that we grow into our best and most joyful selves not when we avoid our problems but when we embrace them, confident that we are resilient enough to work through them to an appropriate resolution.

Resilience is our ability to physically, emotionally, and mentally bounce back from adverse circumstances. In fact, our capacity to thrive in life depends directly our resilience. Without it, we would be down for the count every time we ran into a problem. In Building Your Resilience: Finding Meaning in Adversity, you’ll learn how our challenges, and even our traumas, can become gifts that bring wisdom and growth. In the 17 fascinating classes and 7 “hands-on” practice sessions of this course, you’ll learn about and experience the process of building the inner calm and clarity of mind that create greater resilience.

The great news is that you can proactively improve your resilience to better face any adversity ahead. In fact, we know more about how we can boost our resilience now than we ever have before. In this course, you’ll not only learn about the components and importance of resilience, but you’ll also be working hands-on to increase your own resilience. In addition to 17 fascinating classes, seven 30-minute guided practices give you the opportunity to experience active and relaxing yoga poses, breath work, mindfulness, and how to evoke your body’s natural relaxation response, among other techniques. Whether you’re a trauma survivor or someone who is reaching for a more fulfilling and joyful life, your life will be enriched when you proactively increase your resilience.
