When we tap the innate neuroplasticity of the brain to reduce stress, regain our equilibrium, and restore perspective and resilience, we can avoid compassion fatigue and burnout and recover the rejuvenating creativity and flow of our work.
In this experiential daylong workshop, you will learn empirically validated techniques to calm down the nervous system, take self-compassion breaks, come to clarity and discernment in decision making, heal toxic shame, retire the inner critic, and revive a sense of competency and connection with others. You'll leave with a self-help toolkit to create new neural flexibility in your brain and a fresh sense of well-being and flourishing.
