IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS

COMPASSION


Take Care, Give Care


 

Participants will learn about the importance of self-care and how to cultivate greater compassion, a critical trait for navigating life’s challenges with resilience.

CONFIDENCE


Be Seen — in Service of Others


 

We all matter, and our unique voices matter. In this session, participants learn tools to combat nerves, summon a sense of power, and speak up at school, work and beyond.

GRATITUDE


Express Gratitude, Increase Resilience


 

Participants learn strategies for cultivating a personal gratitude practice, which can help them bolster resilience to stress and flourish at school, at work and in life.

PERSPECTIVE


Busyness and the Big Picture


 

When we focus on life’s busyness, we risk losing sight of the bigger picture. In this session, participants “zoom out” to gain perspective on their to-dos and discover how they connect to what’s important.

PRESENCE


Putting People First


 

In this session, participants explore what it means to be fully present to those around them and how our presence can communicate the message “you matter.”

PURPOSE


Using Gifts for Good


 

Purpose gives life meaning. Participants will experience an inspirational lesson that helps them identify their personal gifts and talents in order to serve the world’s greatest needs.
