THRIVE

In this workshop series, we will break down the science of well-being and the key elements known to increase happiness, combat overwhelm and move us from simply surviving - to THRIVING! Each session will include practical and research backed strategies to build resilience in the face of our modern-day stressors and flourish amidst the busyness. Although concepts will build upon one another throughout the series, each session is also meant to stand on its own and attendees can join in at any time.
