Cultivating Resilience in Challenging Times with Linda Graham

abril 4, 2018

Linda Graham shares practices for cultivating resilience in challenging times in this inspirational and very informative Peacemaker Forum talk.

According to Linda, resilience is our innate capacity to flexibly face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters.  In the video, she shares a short but powerful practice to connect with our inner resources of compassion, clarity, confidence, and courage. Resilience training helps you connect with the external resources of people and logistical support to help you re-group, recover your response flexibility, no matter what level of disruption you are experiencing in your current life.

Linda's acclaimed book, Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being (New World Library, 2013) integrates the paradigms and practices of modern neuroscience, Western relational psychology and Eastern contemplative practices to help people shift out of old patterns of response to life events – neural “swamp” or neural “cement” – to more flexible, adaptive coping strategies that lead to more authentic resilience and well-being.
