What is our intention for Rewire and Growing Resilience?

"Emotional intelligence is the ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions 

as a source of human energy, information, connection, and influence."

-Robert K. Cooper, Ph.D.

Our hope and intention for both the Rewire workshops, as well as Growing Resilience, is to empower people through the tenets of positive psychology. We all struggle as we live our lives. However, suffering can diminish with more knowledge about our emotional and cognitive life. We all know what it is like to feel overwhelmed by intense emotions as well as hijacked by troubling thoughts.

As our life unfolds, we have experiences that shape our beliefs about ourselves and the world at large. Sometimes these thought patterns can make change difficult.

Evidenced-based skills, when practiced and integrated into our lives, can help us change unhelpful thinking and experience more emotional balance. As we grow in resilience, we move from a reactive stance to one where we are responding with more effectiveness. Awareness about past experiences is often

inadequate to implement and experience positive changes in our lives. Each of us is capable of learning new skills, thereby enjoying a happier and healthier path through life. Ultimately, change can begin in the very moment we are in.
