Has your life ever taken a challenging turn that you didn’t see coming? Dealing effectively with the challenges and crises of life is the core of our resilience and well-being. Developing flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with everyday disappointments and extraordinary disasters is at the heart of any transformative process—and essential to recovering from any trauma.
This workshop draws on the evidence-based tools of relational psychotherapy, is informed by neuroscience, and emphasizes mindfulness and self-compassion practices to show you how to shift brain functioning and coping behaviors. It includes presentations, guided meditations and visualizations, group discussions, gentle movement, and written reflection.
You will gain tools to deepen the self-compassion and empathy that connect you to your inner resources for thriving and flourishing.

Linda Graham has been an ardent practitioner and facilitator of personal growth and self-transformation for more than 20 years. She integrates the paradigms and practices of modern neuroscience, Western relational psychology, and Eastern contemplative practices in order to help people shift out of old response patterns into flexible, adaptive patterns that lead to authentic resilience and well-being.
Drawing on her own experience as a seasoned clinician—integrating mindfulness practice, experiential psychotherapies, and findings from neuroscience—she has published numerous articles in national publications, as well as Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being, a book offering groundbreaking tools and techniques for rewiring old response patterns.
In helping and guiding others, she sources her own experiences of healing and awakening, as well as more than two decades of integrative study, practice, and teaching of transformational psychotherapies, vipassana meditation, life coaching, and facilitating groups and workshops.
