Dr. Zelana Montminy
Forget Happiness – Master Resilience Instead
10:00 a.m. Coffee & Check-in
10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Presentation
Carlson Family Theater
Our unrelenting quest for lasting happiness is leading us and our families astray. We anchor our goals in a fleeting feeling that sets us up for failure. Research shows lasting success and contentment aren't about happiness after all – truly thriving in today's world requires resilience. The good news is that resilience is a skill we learn, not something we're born with or without. We know resilience is important, but we have not been trained to access it in our day-to-day life. How we actually become resilient is left out of the conversation. Until now. In this talk, Dr. Zelana will explain what it takes to create a resilient mindset for our children and ourselves, how to shift perceptions, and deliver tools we can use to flourish.
Dr. Zelana Montminy is a renowned behavioral scientist paving the way for mental fitness with a fresh perceptive rooted in the latest research. As a prominent figure in Positive Psychology and one of Maria Shriver’s Architects of Change, she is the author of bestselling 21 Days to Resilience (HarperCollins). Dr. Zelana speaks around the world and is a go-to authority in the media.
SSALA also is offering this presentation on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at New Roads School, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Look for RSVP details for both presentations in the Weekly Mailer.
