Cultivating Resiliency: Harnessing Your Body’s Adaptive Response to Stress

Stress is part of our body’s natural and automatic response to meeting life’s challenges. Whether we meet those challenges with the depletion that comes from chronic stress or with resiliency can play a large role in our health and happiness every day. The more resilient we are, the quicker we can rebound from setbacks and adversity, whether they be everyday stressors or seemingly life-altering ones.

With an estimated 70% or more of physician visits attributed to conditions that are related to stress, it is clear that our ability to cultivate resiliency and harness the body and mind’s adaptive response to stress can help to mitigate the negative consequences of chronic disease, as well as to strengthen the body’s immune system for long-term health and well-being.

This two-day experiential course is designed to be a practical, hands-on combination of information, skills practice, and guided discussion. As a participant in the course, you will:

  • Explore your current dimensions of stress and resiliency
  • Learn practical, easy-to-use tools to support your adaptive response to stress
  • Practice mind-body techniques that reverse the physiologic stress response and induce the relaxation response naturally and easily
  • Identify personal health resiliency goals and action steps
