Emotional Resilience with Mindfulness

In person in Bow

3-hour workshop

Feeling overwhelmed by emotions? Challenged by your relationships? Have a desire to understand your feelings more? Through cultivating mindfulness and compassion, we’re able to know our emotions more fully, respond to strong emotions more wisely, and cultivate and strengthen positive emotions — all of which builds resilience.


This workshop will include:

  • A 22-page workbook with exercises and resources for building your resilience
  • Supportive guided meditations
  • Mindful journaling practices (please bring a notebook & pen or pencil)
  • Small and large group discussion
  • Practical tools for difficult moments in everyday life

In this three hour participatory workshop, you’ll learn techniques to help you recognize and respond to difficult emotions with both mindfulness and compassion. Explore a variety of practices, learning simple tools to reduce stress and anxiety, increase joy, and weather life’s difficulties with greater ease.


You’ll learn to:

  • Know your emotions more fully
  • Respond to strong emotions more wisely
  • Cultivate and strengthen positive emotions

So soothing. You will give yourself a gift by attending. I came away refreshed, with a couple new ways to help myself on a day to day basis.

Carolyn is an excellent teacher. She always empowered me to also be my own teacher and modify practices as needed. Her warm presence, wise teachings, and encouraging energy made me feel supported, and I got so much out of the experience thanks to her guidance.
