Resilient Wisdom

The Art and Science of Rising

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Life is difficult and, at times, terrifying. It is also wondrous and surprisingly beautiful. Navigating these two realities requires deep resilience—the capacity to ride waves of change while holding fast to what is good and strong within and around us. This is the art and science of rising

Join Maria Sirois, PsyD, as she weaves together research, story, humor, and clinical anecdotes from the fields of resilient leadership, positive psychology, and mind-body medicine.

Over the course of five days, you will explore:

  • The intersection of happiness and resilience
  • Tools and practices to nourish you during challenging moments or times of chronic stress
  • Golden wisdom from those who speak to us through the centuries about resilience and well-being: artists, poets, philosophers, and the everyman
  • How to unlock a deeper sense of meaning, authenticity, and efficacy by understanding how post-traumatic growth functions and expands your life
  • How to shift daily stressors at home and work into opportunities.
