Friday and Saturday Breakout

Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Resilience and Well-Being Linda Graham, MFT

When we tap into the innate neuroplasticity of the brain to reduce stress, regain our equilibrium, and restore perspectives and discernment, we strengthen the inner resources and natural resilience that support well-being and flourishing.In this workshop, you will learn more than a dozen tools and techniques drawn from the intersection of brain science, relational psychology, and mindfulness practices to reduce the impact of stress and trauma, deepen self-compassion and self-awareness, revive a sense of competency and connection with others, and broaden perspectives, possibilities, and sense of purpose. You will learn how to:

  • create the “left shift” that counter-balances the brain’s negativity bias
  • heal toxic shame and retire the inner critic
  • strengthen the executive functioning of the prefrontal cortex to build resilience and coherence
  • harness the mental play space of the default network to allow insights and ahas! to break through
