Across the globe, individuals, communities and organizations are facing unprecedented challenges. The future looks just as uncertain. Now more than ever we need to cultivate greater resilience. Ecopsychology has a pivotal role to play in generating the very adaptability and rootedness we need to weather life’s winds and waves.
This training provides you a robust tool kit you can draw upon to remain strong, open and engaged regardless of what is happening around you. Using our unique curriculum, you will become more resilient, capable of not only navigating adversity but thriving within it.
This training is designed to empower you with the practices, qualities and skills needed to cultivate greater resilience. These principles are flexible and easy to integrate into your life, while also proven to generate meaningful results. The core tenets of this program can be applied across many disciplines, from our inner life and relationships to work and community engagement.
The focus of this training is providing practical and meaningful information that is easy to apply across diverse circumstances. This training is therefore suitable for anyone who seeks to empower themselves with greater knowledge and strategies for becoming more resilient, regardless of whether you just want to apply this to your personal life or also to your community or workplace.
The training begins in late Fall and will last about six weeks. Each module will last approximately two weeks; at the start of each module you will receive a pre-recorded and downloadable lecture based on the content for that section. These recordings will be approximately an hour. Additionally, you will also receive lecture notes, reading resources and optional practices and reflections. Because this class is self-paced, you can engage with this material when you have time and interest.
Before the class starts, all registrants will be asked to complete a poll of dates and times they can attend live webinars (provided they are interested). Based on the times that work for the largest number of people, we will schedule our biweekly, live webinars. These will be optional, and also recorded and shared for those who can’t attend. These webinars will last between an hour and a half and two hours.
We offer an early registration–through the middle of November–for a discounted price of $39.
Additionally, there is scholarship available for those who need it. Please email us for more information.
