About the Workshop | SEPTEMBER 6, 2019 | 8:30am-3:30pm


We are aware of the importance of being resilient, of changing our approach, expectations and assumptions as circumstance change. Business books emphasize the value of being able to adapt — “to reinvent strategies as circumstances change, to have the capacity to change before the case for change becomes desperately obvious.” (Harvard  Business Review). Articles on successful aging discuss that it is essential to be flexible and to accept change. Being resilient is vital to a happy and successful life.

But, what does resiliency “re-imagined” mean?

Dennis Coyne, our primary presenter during this Day to Experience, states: “Too often being resilient is spoken of as simply a cognitive choice.  Seldom does a discussion of resiliency mention practices, seeing the body as a source of wisdom.  The body is the internal GPS by which we navigate the inevitable disruptions we experience.“ He believes that we not only resolve to be resilient; we practice being resilient.

The Cycle of Renewal model developed by Dr. Frederick Hudson views life as cycling through chapters and transitions. This model enables you to know where you or a client is in the cycle by identifying the feelings and situations that characterize different times of life. Using the whole person - mind, body and spirit - you and your clients will learn to be more resilient. 

Through experiential participation you will be provided the tools and practices needed to wisely and whole-heartedly author new life chapters.The theory and practice of resilience, as informed by the genius of Dr. Hudson and Richard Strozzi-Heckler will be presented by experienced coaches who studied with Hudson and Strozzi-Heckler.

Sylvia Hutton, recording artist and coach, will bring her voice and music to our gathering as a support and inspiration to our exploration. She knows personally how music can be a powerful vehicle for expanding our capacities for change. In her words: “We can grow our capacity for resilience by creating practices that open us into more right-brain-based experiences by using our imagination, music, play, and spontaneity.”
