Mindful Resilience and Post Traumatic Growth Beyond the COVID Crisis
Even as the pandemic winds down and we enter a “new normal” how can we ensure that we and our communities emerge from this time more resilient than ever? Join Dr. Chris Willard as we explore the foundations of resilience and post traumatic growth, looking to positive psychology, spirituality, neuroscience and mindfulness as we explore tools that have boosted human resilience in the face of adversity for generations.
