After a loss, the sense of not knowing which way to turn can make navigating the healing journey of transformation confusing and exhausting, often with feelings of despair, anger, fear, loneliness and disbelief. Questions arise:
- How will I make it through the day?
- How can I move forward?
- Who is here for me?
- Am I safe?
- What meaning does life hold now?
- Will I ever be happy again?
- How can I find support?
Resilience is the ability to bounce back in the face of difficulty and adversity, and can be learned. Sue brings years of experience from her chaplaincy, counseling, teaching, and her own grief journey as well as research-based principles of positive psychology, to teach resilience. In this workshop, you will learn how to discover your signature strengths and use them to envision and create a life of meaning and purpose to move forward through your loss, and thrive. Meditation and breathing techniques will be taught along with other coping strategies to take home with you, as well as prompts for journal writing, storytelling, and discussion, offering the opportunity to find the answers to questions from within and create change. All you need to bring is yourself.
