Got food, got water, got skills? Great! But do you have emotional resilience? Taking the topic of the previous night's talk much deeper, this workshop will offer concrete tools for building emotional resilience for living in turbulent times.

We will be holding this workshop at the home of Michael and Winter Robinson on the banks of the Saco River in Buxton, about 30 minutes from Portland.

Contact hours can be certified for helping professionals who participate in this session.

Workshop cost is $40 early bird until April 1 and then $50 from April 2 onward.


About the workshop:

We are living in uncertain, turbulent times. Many of us are anxious about how we will navigate through our lives amidst increasingly unstable economic and social structures, or how we’ll prepare ourselves and our loved ones for an era unlike anything we have ever experienced as humans.

Through a combination of mythical storytelling, discussion, mindfulness practices in nature, and practical “inner tools” for cultivating resilience, you’ll:

Empower yourself to feel resourceful and grounded in a future characterized by uncertainty. Create a sense of inner peace and forge a contemplative relationship with nature. Connect meaningfully with other like-minded people who share your concerns and passions about the state of the world. Carolyn Baker, Ph.D. is a storyteller, drummer, and a student of myth and ritual. She is the author of Navigating the Coming Chaos: A Handbook for Inner Transition, and Sacred Demise. Carolyn maintains a Transition Counseling/Coaching practice.
