The Resilience through Joy workshop is inspired by my own experience as a child refugee and years of dancing with refugees. We use evidence-based techniques to explore orienting towards what is pleasing in the moment through the portals of the imagination, the five senses, memory, drawing, and movement. This type of meditative exploration helps us become more resourced so we can access deeper wells of creativity and problem-solving. Participants have the opportunity to devise a customized action plan to integrate the learnings and incorporate simple daily strategies to cultivate resilience, bolster the immune system, and improve quality of life.
*The workshop will be offered on Saturday morning.
