Program Description

Do you ever feel overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed? Now more than ever, our lives are a juggle of challenges—in relationships, career, parenting, health, and life events of all kinds.

Join author, clinical psychologist, and mindfulness expert Melanie Greenberg, PhD, to learn unique and efficient skills to calm your mind and body at the height of anxiety. Create spacious awareness, clarity, and focus in everyday situations, whenever you need to.

Together you will explore a proven, practical approach to the science and art of rewiring your brain for resilience and well-being—with applied mindfulness, neuroplasticity, and positive psychology tools. At this workshop you will practice how to:

  • Calm “fight, flight, freeze” triggers with emotional awareness and self-compassion
  • Stop trauma and chronic stress from making you overreactive or hyper-vigilant
  • Utilize brain-based strategies to navigate major events and daily stressors
  • Pivot fear and avoidance into hope, engagement, and curiosity
  • Establish a growth mindset that can endure stress and reframe failure.

If you balance multiple responsibilities at home and work, slowing down and taking care of yourself are a must. In this dynamic and interactive setting including presentations, hands-on experience, and one-on-one sharing, gain the necessary tools to master your brain’s automatic stress responses and maintain peak levels of health, hope, and self-esteem.
