WELCOME to Week 5 - Resilience (Part 1)

< Compassion Part 2 | Course Home | Up Next: Resilience Part 2

Ever wondered how you can increase your emotional bandwidth? That’s what this topic is about.
Resilience refers to the ability to thrive or grow in the face of challenges and difficulties, rather than crumbling. The good news is that through use of various practices, including the ones discussed in this module, we can improve our resilience. We will learn about the field of positive psychology, and experiment with some of the tools. To understand more about resilience, please first check out the video below. 

Now explore the head, hand and heart sections for this module. We’ll be focusing on building positive emotions. To get more benefit from these practices, it is really good to do them regularly, particularly the meditations. To increase the potential benefits, see if you can challenge yourself (or gift yourself!) with doing a meditation practice daily.

Sharing our experiences is a way we can support each other, build community, and deepen our understanding.  Please consider joining the private Facebook page for CARE course participants.  Here we will be able to connect with each other, and share our experiences.  Click on the button below to access and join the group, then respond to the posts about this week’s adventures with awareness, if you’d like to!
