Rekindling the Spark
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by the spark from another person. – Albert Schweitzer
I have been more than blessed by so many mentors pointing the way to so many resources for recovering resilience and well-being. My updated resilience for right now…and for the long haul links you to many. And because readers often express their thanks for this or that practice, this or that program that made an immediate and substantial difference in their lives, here are a few more….
Rick Hanson, whose Just One Thing posts I have been passing on to you for years (with permission) is hosting a free online Life After COVID summit May 21-23, 2021. Rick has drawn together a powerful group of excellent mentors to help you explore how to recover from the wounds of the last year, calm re-entry anxiety and process grief, connect with your true nature and lay the foundation for a brighter future.
And for a deeper dive, Rick is again offering his online Neurodharma course: the practical science of a steady mind, a kind heart, and inner peace. The course begins May 29 and can be life-changing. (Disclosure and incentive: If you register from this post with the coupon code BOUNCE50, you will receive a $50 discount.)
For clinical trainings, I heartily recommend all of the Leading Edge Seminars programs. LES is especially terrific at hosting presenters at the leading edge of innovations in trauma therapy, so much in demand right now. Two upcoming trainings that will be especially relevant:
Foundations of Internal Family Systems with Frank Anderson, M.D. May 20 and May 27, 2021.
Revolutionizing Trauma Therapy with Babette Rothschild June 2-4, 2021
Both trainings will be available later as video recordings. (Another disclosure: the code LG25 garners you a $25 discount.)
And for recommendations for more superb mentors, I’ve just posted The Best Books on Resilience: Coping Skillfully with Life’s Difficulties and Crises. Part of a new website Discover the Best Books recommending best books about hundreds of different topics; easy and fun.
All in the context:
Do not blindly believe what other people say. See for yourself what brings contentment, clarity, and peace.
