Restore & Revive: Cultivating a Resilience Practice

Date: 18 April 2023
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Bayside Resort (240 Dogwood St, Parksville, BC)

It is impossible to get through life without varying degrees of adversity.  Some of our challenges are byproducts of our choices, like moving to a new community or changing jobs, while others come into our lives like unwelcome house guests.

Like a sailboat that is prepared for all conditions, what if we could trust in ourselves to weather the storms?  With a healthy resilience practice, this is possible.

Why do you need resilience?  Resilience is the ability to “bounce back” or recover from challenging events.  A resilience practice is critical for maintaining our mental health and overall well-being.
Over the past two years, Cindy Thompson has been studying resilience and learning from the lived experience of her guests on A Resilience Project podcast.  Drawing on 30 + years in the counselling field and the distilled practices of her guests on the podcast, Cindy will introduce you to evidence-based resilience practices to help you thrive.

Topics that will be covered include:

  •         The value of having a resilience skill set
  •         The difference between “white-knuckling it through” and thriving
  •         Getting clear on our values can serve as a guide in the decisions we make
  •         How to revive and restore your sense of well-being
  •         Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable
