Resilience Is For Thriving, Not Just For Surviving!

About The Course

This course is a series of 8 friendly, weekly meetings that provide an opportunity for a group of likeminded people to come together and support each other in working through 'Resilient', the highly acclaimed personal development program created by leading psychologist, meditation teacher, and neuroscience expert, Dr Rick Hanson, Ph.D.

(Dr Rick Hanson is a celebrated figure in the field of psychology and personal well-being. He is a Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley and a New York Times best-selling author. Rick is noted for his ground-breaking work in identifying and teaching the core skills required for human well-being, healthy personal psychological growth, and beneficial meditation practice. All his work is grounded in Mindfulness and non-religious Buddhist principles.)

The 8 weekly course sessions will enable participants to meet together and explore the course work (and meditation exercises) in convenient, easy-to-digest weekly segments – and to also discuss, share and reflect on the experiences they've had over the previous week while actually putting the course work and meditations into practice in their daily lives. These group sessions will also include supplementary material and additional teaching that gives extra context, background and explanation to the core course themes. 

The weekly meetings will be hosted by Shaun (a highly experienced group facilitator and trained Mindfulness teacher who runs our other weekly Mindfulness sessions) and all the course materials (including a copy of the'Resilient' handbook and a CD of all the meditations used during the course) will be provided, with everyone receiving their own, personal copies. 

The weekly meetings will be held over 8 Monday evenings at 6.15pm in the heart of the Nottingham city centre. The first session is on Monday 15th October with the final session on Monday 10th December. (There will be no session on Monday 5th November which is Bonfire Night.)

The weekly sessions themselves will last approximately 2½ hours and are designed to be friendly, welcoming, informal and supportive. In addition to attending the weekly meetings, participants in the program should expect to also undertake approximately 30 minutes of home meditation practice (plus some light reading and other short exercises) every day over the period of the course.

'Resilient' - 12 tools for transforming everyday experience into lasting happiness

Your key to self-love and inner peace

In Resilient, Rick Hanson explains how to build the very foundations of well-being by harnessing the power of positive experiences to build an unshakeable core.
      Dr. Hanson poses that anyone can build up resilience, the key to a positive mindset, unshakeable sense of self and the ability to get back up again and withstand anything life throws your way. He has distilled 40 years of clinical work and teaching into 12 practical, highly effective tools to help you build your resilience. Working with these tools allows you to enter a positive feedback cycle, which creates a sense of well-being, which in turn establishes resilience, and ultimately powers itself to strengthen you.
      Developed from his incredibly popular online course called The Foundations of Well-Being, here is the groundwork you need to meet any challenge in life head on and to live with an open heart.

Important - Mindfulness and other forms of meditation are safe and appropriate practices for the vast majority of people and they are proven to offer a wide range of benefits, including the lowering of stress and deep levels of relaxation. However current research indicates that all forms of meditation (including Mindfulness) may be unwise for people with bipolar vulnerability or those who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), unless it is conducted under clinical supervision. If you are currently receiving treatment for any form of mental health issue (or have received such treatment in the recent past, or have reason to believe that you might need such treatment), you should consult your doctor or health care professional before engaging with Mindfulness or any form of meditation.
