Supporting Resiliency in our Community
Resiliency requires on an ongoing commitment to a mindset and practices that strengthen and support us in times of need. We hope all of you are having a wonderful summer, filled with every good thing imaginable. We also recognize that life is filled with ups and downs, fun new adventures as well as sad disappointments. Resiliency is our ability to weather the inevitable storms of life. It is our mission here at The Resiliency Center
to offer healing, educational programs, and community gatherings that support the resiliency of everyone in our local area.
The community of practitioners at The Resiliency Center
meet on a regular basis to share our work and interests, support one another, and explore how we can best serve our mission as a group. This regular time for connection is one aspect of how we stay resilient. In our meetings, we also brainstorm and experiment with new ways to creatively meet the needs of the greater community. To that end, we have decided to mark our anniversary this September with a free series of workshops on resiliency!

Find It Now by Dean Solon
a birthday. #63.
am noticing, am FEELING, a loss, a grieving, a sensing of changing, and of being older in this life. An almost-seeing---isn't this what much of seeing is?---of long linking chains of lives, lifetimes unwinding undulating unfolding in and with and through, over under sideways down.
there is this life "on top" of all the lives....filled and filling with a wisdom of experience, a strange and sacred concoction of anything and everything under the brilliant blazing sun that sits in the center of the Big Sky, I am depth, am breadth, am full and am empty with loss, with love, with grief, with grace and gravity and gratitude.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy
Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized
The most useless day is that in which we have not laughed
Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, “I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.”
