Title: Resilience is the antidote to this increasingly chaotic world, but how to we really cultivate it?
Description: There are many psychological theories and meditation practices that promise to reduce stress and bring peace, calm, and even happiness, so why are so many people still unhappy and unable to apply these practices to their daily life? Ashley’s years of meditative practice and work as a licensed marriage and family therapist have lead her to understand how the combination of meditation and psychology are the key to building resilience. When we become truly resilient we can take on our troubles because we know that we can bounce back in the face of adversity. In this engaging and interactive talk, Ashley will share simple ways to to combine both meditative practices on and off the cushion and psychology to cultivate the essential skill of resilience.
