Apr 8 (Sat)
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Santa Monica
Challenges are inevitable in life. We all encounter them but how we respond can be the difference between more suffering and experiencing happiness.

In this powerful mini-workshop, resilience researcher Michaela Haas, PhD, shares stories and time-tested, empathetic heart practices and tools to transform adversity into a force for greater good.

Together we will explore the new science of posttraumatic growth, featuring tried-and-true methods to turn stress into strength.

Through storytelling, mindfulness meditation, and science-backed skills we begin to reshape the way we think of crisis and learn to thrive even when life seems overwhelming. We leave with a deeper understanding of the strength of the human spirit and powerful practices to transform our life.

Anyone looking to find healing, forgiveness, and happiness in difficult times is welcome.


Michaela Haas, Ph.D., is the author of Bouncing Forward: The Art and Science of Cultivating Resilience (Atria/Enliven, 2015) and Dakini Power(Shambhala, 2013).

She is a resilience researcher, reporter, and consultant who has taught at the University of California Santa Barbara, the University of the West, and internationally. She has been practicing mindfulness meditation for more than twenty years and combines powerful storytelling with scientific research and spiritual depth.
