This is a discussion group that explores the human capacity and potential for well-being and resilience no matter what.
How do you become immune to the ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?’ Is it a question of just becoming tolerant of pain and suffering or is it about being clever? Is it a question of personality and the ‘luck of the draw’ or is it something else entirely different that when understood leads to a deeper experience of your true nature and what it means to be human?
If you have ever started laughing in the middle of experiencing intense pain or sadness or survived the worst moment of your life and lived to tell the tale then you have already accessed your innate resilience and well-being. But where does it come from in the first place? Why is it more available to you at some times rather than others? How can you get more of it so that you can weather life’s inevitable personal and professional storms?
This discussion is grounded in the work of Sydney Banks who uncovered three principles that are at the core of our human experience.
