Our 5th Anniversary Celebration

Thank you to everyone in the Resiliency Center community for making the past five years so successful and special.  It was a joy celebrating with many of you on September 18. We look forward to continued growth and resiliency in the coming years.
During our gathering, attendees were invited to express their thoughts on resiliency and here is what they said.

Resiliency is:

  • Strength through adversity
  • The ability to stay centered in crisis, always trusting your gut intuition and acting on it.
  • Reworking yourself continually, a work in progress.
  • Bounce, bounce, bouncing back!
  • Breathe in love; release fear.

When asked to share activities done to promote personal resiliency, here is what we learned:

We dance, laugh, walk, journal, talk with friends, hang out with children, pray, meditate, cook, do yoga, help others write, stay centered, exercise, walk the dog in the woods, bicycle, chant, sing, make art, stay positive, have a sense of humor, stay connected to loved ones, make time for new experiences and social connection.

A Golden Hammer

By Dean Solon 

the Master said:
   "i bless the connection,
     i disdain the attachment."

forgetting His words for a moment,
i dozed for many years,
i slept for many lifetimes.

then a golden hammer
tapped me
on the forehead.

in a moment
that opens
as eternity
i hear the Master say
   "i bless the connection,
     i disdain the attachment."

Please note: Meditation with Dean has been canceled on Thursday, Oct 3, 7:30 pm and Monday, October 7, 8:30 am.

Resiliency Through Managing Anger

Monday, 10/21, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

One of the many ways that we can increase resiliency is to learn how to control anger and express it in healthier ways.  Improving anger management can elevate self-confidence, decrease feelings of victimization, improve relationships with others, boost self-control, and heighten overall joy and satisfaction in life.  Each of these things in turn contributes to higher levels of personal resiliency.  Led by Kim Vargas, LCSW, this session will focus on better understanding the root causes of anger and finding practical ways to manage it.

Nutrition is an important and foundational approach to resiliency. However, it is a very individual process to determine if your specific nutritional practices contribute to resiliency or not.

Edman, DSc, FACN, CNS, Clinical Nutritionist and Integrative Medicine Consultant, for an informative discussion of the range of nutritional issues that could be essential for you in developing an effective nutrition and lifestyle program that strengthens your resiliency.

Upcoming Events & Programs

Infant Massage

New Series starts in October!
6 Consecutive Tuesdays
Starting Oct. 15
10-11:30 am

The focus of this series is to support you and your little one during your transitional and amazing first year together!  The class encourages parents to trust to their own parental instincts while exploring their baby’s cues and emotional responses to touch.  It is great for new parents; babies that have touch sensitivities or colicky symptoms; and moms who had a difficult pregnancy, childbirth, or are struggling with the transition into motherhood.  Parents massage their own babies and learn different strokes each week that aid in tension relief, colic and gas discomfort, increase spatial awareness, and promote bonding and better sleep.

Classes are taught by Brittiney George and Shannon Haughey, certified educators through Infant Massage USA.  Class size is limited! Registration required.
