Event description
Learn how to grow your resilience and expand your capacity to hold onto centered calm in the face of disappointment, distress or disaster.

About this Event

Everyone is knocked off center during stormy times and sometimes we feel so broken depression, anger, and fear overwhelm us. Resilience helps to stay grounded enough to stand firm yet flexible enough to stretch and grow. This workshop will review some of the neuroscience of resilience and offer participants evidence-based contemplative practices that can support treatment and prevention of mental distress or disorder. Based on the book, “Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being”, by Linda Graham, MFT.

Who is leading?

Dale and Shelly Suggs are spiritual directors with a long personal history with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and suicidal thinking. Their journey has included many twists including broken-heartedness and burn-out as well as healing and hope. Cofounders of Beloved San Diego, a new church in North Inland San Diego, they hope to offer healing and wholeness in an authentic and meaningful way to others who struggle with mental health who are seeking clarity, connection, and compassion.

Who should come?

Anyone and everyone who has ever struggled to bounce back from difficulty, distress or disaster.

Cost?

Donations in the range of 5-20 dollars are encouraged but not required.

Resources: Dale and Shelly will facilitate the conversation and lead activities based on the book, “Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being”, by Linda Graham, MFT.
