New 8-week online program
Learn to Cope with Anything, Anything at All
Resilience – capacities and inner resources to cope quickly and effectively with any crisis or distress - is always needed.
We lose our car keys and our wallet. We discover mold in the bathroom. Our dearest friend moves across country. Our dearest friend gets a diagnosis of lung cancer or COVID-19.
Especially in times of rapid change and uncertainty, skills of resilience are needed more than ever. We need to learn the strategies and deepen the underlying practices that allow us to cope with any disappointment, any difficulty, and any disaster.
And to learn that we can.
The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.
– Bernard Baruch
The new 8-week online program, Resilience 2.0™ offers proven strategies and practices for learning to cope with anything, anything at all, from small annoyances, to the serious sorrows and struggles that break our hearts and sometimes break our spirits, to the utter catastrophes that change our lives forever.
That the birds of worry and care fly over your head, this you cannot change; but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent.
– Chinese proverb

You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf

In the 8-week Resilience 2.0™ online course, Linda Graham teaches you tools and practices to:
Rewire Your Brain for Resilience and Well-Being
How resilience develops in the first place, in your brain and in your being. What derails your resilience; how to use the neuroplasticity, also innate in your brain, to get your resilience back on track in ways that are safe, efficient, and effective.
Move From Distress to Centeredness
Reduce the impact of stress and trauma on your nervous system and return to a stable state of calm and centeredness, not too revved up or too shut down.
Shift From Reactivity to Resilience
Manage surges of negative disruptive emotions and the brain’s negativity bias that would derail your resilience and dump you out of your boat, and…
Cultivate the positive emotions – gratitude, kindness, compassion, awe, joy, delight - that foster more openness to learning, more optimism, more learning and growth, and lead directly to more resilience.
Be-Friend One’s Self
Nourish the self-awareness and self-acceptance that recover your inner secure base of resilience and allow you to (re)claim your own inner strengths of resilience.
Trust and Connect with Others
Deepen the trust and connections with other people who can serve as reliable refuges and resources for safety and healing in times of trouble and tragedy.
See Clearly, Act Wisely
Steady the mindful awareness that allows you to see clearly what’s happening (and your reactions to what’s happening), discern options and make wise choices.
Steady Your Resilience
Learn the dozens of powerful experiential exercises and strategies that create new habits of resilient coping and cultivate the resilience mindset that allows you to transform any adversity into learning and growth.
Sustain Your New Strengths and Skills
Explore the lifestyle choices and practices that maintain your capacities and strategies for resilience over the long haul.
I am no longer afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.

A message from Linda:
For 25 years, my work has focused on helping people strengthen capacities to cope with the challenges and crises of their lives, recover an authentic sense of self, deepen into healthy, resonant relationships, and engage with the world through meaningful and purposeful work.
If you have any interest at all in learning how to move from surviving to skillful coping to thriving and flourishing, I sincerely encourage you to enroll in Resilience 2.0.
The Resilience 2.0 course is based on the research I’ve presented in Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being and streamlined in the course book Resilience: Powerful Practices for Bouncing Back from Disappointment, Difficulty, and Even Disaster. I’ve taught the tools and techniques developed in these books to thousands of clinicians and lay people for almost ten years, throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
These practices do work to help us cope resiliently with challenges and thrive in our lives. I invite you to experience that growth and transformation for yourself.
I invite you to learn how to sail your own ship.
