Using Forgiveness and Mindfulness to Foster Resilience and Flexibility  

Join Dr. Fred Luskin, best-selling author and director of Stanford University's Forgiveness Projects, for workshop focusing on positive psychology as a prescription for better health and happiness in life and business.

You will learn how choosing emotional wellness and positive coping can reduce anger, depression, stress – and even blood pressure — and lead to greater feelings of optimism, hope, compassion, and self-confidence.  Mindfulness, forgiveness and positive psychology practices will be highlighted.


Workshop Overview

The workshop is offered in either an online or face-to-face format. There will be discussion and guided practice on:

  • What is positive psychology and why are mindfulness and forgiveness so important for our well being
  • Why forgiveness is good for people’s emotional and physical well-being
  • Why happiness predicts success more than success predicts happiness
  • What is mindfulness and how can one embed simple practices in a busy life
