Morning Workshops

A Practical Approach to Everyday Resiliency - Marilyn Orr

A Practical Approach to Everyday Resiliency will be an interactive morning workshop with coach and author Marilyn Orr. Marilyn is an executive and leadership coach with Capacity Building Coaching and published author and speaker on resiliency. Participants will receive a copy of her resiliency workbook “How Absorbent Are Your Shocks?”, with her workshop focusing specifically on exercises that increase our resiliency from an emotional perspective.

"What better gift could you give yourself than a chance to increase your ability to be well regardless of what is going on in your life?" - Marilyn Orr


Practicing Mindfulness Speaker - Neil Stegall

Neil Stegall from Mariposa Sangha will lead morning workshops in practicing mindfulness meditation, dovetailing perfectly with Kristin Neff's mindful self-compassion approach that she'll share with us during her afternoon keynote presentation. Neil’s style is warm and exceedingly practical. Participants will leave equipped with the tools to harness the power of the present moment, and be able to incorporate meditation into their daily lives regardless of where they were beforehand.


Afternoon Workshop

The Power of Self-Compassion - Dr. Kristin Neff

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we cared about. Rather than continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect humans and learning to be present with the inevitable struggles of life with greater ease. It motivates us to make needed changes in our lives not because we’re worthless or inadequate, but because we care about ourselves and want to lessen our suffering. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain but letting it in—and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without harsh self-condemnation—are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives. Through discussion and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism; and how to care for others without losing yourself. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.

"The seeds of self-compassion already lie within you – learn how you can uncover this powerful inner resource and transform your life.” - Dr. Kristin Neff
