Empowering Resilience Class

Written by: Julia Smolucha

 

Is it possible to suffer a shattering loss or struggle with a major life crisis and ultimately bounce back with resilience?

And further, is it conceivable that such suffering and anguish can eventually lead to positive change? The answer to both questions is a resounding yes.

Please join me Tuesday evening, February 26 as I teach building resilience and finding growth in the face of grief. Based on my book, The Four Facets of Grief, we will explore how to find acceptance and even joy following a crisis, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, financial or relationship struggles, or any of the myriad ways we are challenged throughout life.

We humans typically feel altered by our life challenges — we suffer tragedy, endure upheaval, and know that life will never be the same. And yet, trauma of any kind doesn’t necessarily lead to a continuing damaged and dysfunctional existence.

I’m committed to the value of resilience learning. I know what it’s like to have to accept the unacceptable, and so my calling is to help you through and beyond your distress. You will learn strategies to help you fully inhabit your reality and to move forward.

I hope you never experience a major loss or crisis, but most of us eventually do. Come join this fascinating discussion to help yourself or someone you know.

All are welcome to attend this interactive class and you don’t need to read the book to participate!
