From Loss to Resilience

From Loss to Resilience

Loss is a part of life that we all face, in many forms: relationships end; loved ones die; we move homes, change jobs, and shift identities. When loss threatens our sense of safety, we often experience anger, fear, and/or sadness.

How can we navigate life's inescapable transitions, tend to our grief, and restore our center? 

Resilience enables us to move through loss with self-awareness, courage, and grace. Blessedly, we are all born with the resilience we need to get through everything that comes our way. In the wake of loss, we not only can draw on our innate resilience to cope--we also have a unique opportunity to nurture and expand it.

In this workshop, through somatic practices, meditations, discussion, ritual, and narrative medicine, you will explore personal experiences of loss and leave with your innate resilience awakened!

The Art of Listening: An Evening of Narrative Medicine

The Art of Listening: An Evening of Narrative Medicine

"Listening is not a reaction, it is a connection."

- Ursula Le Guinn

Listening is an act of love—it is the greatest gift we can give each other. Yet how often do you find yourself only halfheartedly present, distracted, or trying to figure out what you "should" say?

The simple but profound act of being completely present to another person—without judgments or an agenda—takes practice and commitment.

In this 2-hour workshop at Maha Rose Center for Healing, Annie will guide you in this practice of presence using meditation and narrative medicine --a deep discussion of a poem, after which we pour ourselves forth onto a blank page, writing to a prompt related to the poem.

You’ll leave with awakened confidence in your listening skills and a clear understanding of how to:

• Tune into your own body, mind, and heart

• Deeply receive what you hear, and mindfully respond

• Develop intimacy through generous listening

• Navigate the challenges that arise in offering complete presence
