Thriving in the Face of Adversity

We will all experience severe adversity at some point in our lives. In the face of profound loss, some of us eventually open up to life, becoming kinder, wiser, happier, freer, and more loving. Yet others remain trapped and blocked, never getting past it. The majority of us –a sad statistic.

But why only some and not others? Why do some of us keep evolving and others stay stuck?

Post-Traumatic Growth sheds light on these very questions and helps guide you through the dark. It tracks the process of proceeding from immobilization and suffering to healing and emergence…to thriving and actually flourishing. It’s about coming to life, no matter what.

Join our upcoming Power Boost with best-selling author Brenda Ungerland to learn about the commonalities shared by those who managed to evolve against all odds. Leave this presentation with insights, strategies, and skills for facilitating your own process, managing the catalysts and impediments to thriving along the way.

Nothing is more empowering and uplifting than directly experiencing meaningful growth toward your best vision of yourself, unencumbered by inner obstacles. Be guided by a proven, practical blueprint for staying on track while progressing from crisis to flourishing through seven stages.
