Let's reimagine loss, adversity, and mortality and transform life's challenges into meaning and growth.
Each month we’ll explore a theme through the lens of post-traumatic growth, a body of psychological research that suggests the hard stuff of life can lead to the discovery of strength, optimism, more meaningful relationships, heightened spirituality, and purpose.
Pain to Purpose: Redesigning Our Careers and Lives
In this transformative three-part series, we’ll delve into how loss, adversity, and mortality can profoundly shape our personal and professional lives. Coaches, mental health professionals, and design thinkers will guide us in taking these challenging experiences and channeling them into new pathways of purpose and growth.
From Collective Trauma to Transformation
In this three-part series, we’ll understand what seemingly disparate collective traumas have in common. And through the stories of mental health professionals, activists, and survivors, we’ll explore how creative expression, acts of service, and various forms of spirituality can help us navigate a pathway forward.
From Suffering to Spiritual Growth
This is for people of all faiths and no faith—and everyone in between. Together, we will learn about fundamental spiritual concepts and rituals to enhance our personal journeys; we will experience the inspiring stories of leaders who have found spirituality to navigate grief and loss; and, through participatory peer-led breakout sessions, we will be guided by a pastor, a Buddhist monk, and a rabbi to take action in our spiritual growth.
Climate Grief & Growth
When experiencing eco-anxiety about rapid changes in the natural world, what steps can we take – both large and small – to move forward? Topics for discussion and practice will include regulating feelings of despair and finding purpose in acts of service and civic engagement.
Food as Medicine: From Adversity to Abundance
In this series, we’ll reimagine food as a prescription for wellbeing, nourishment, and spiritual growth. Guests will share how transformations in diet, preparation, and food service can allow us and those we love to experience wholeness and healing.
Grief, Growth, & Money
Explore how to transform financial troubles and trauma into new pathways. How can we build healthier relationships with money? How can we plan for ourselves and our loved ones from cradle to grave, in sickness and in health? And from a broader perspective, what small steps can we take to close the racial wealth gap?
The Natural World
Nature is a source for growth and transformation, a wellspring for medicine that can help us raise our consciousness, relieve anxiety, and heal our souls. This series introduces plant medicine, psychedelics, and energy practices to aid us in a search for comfort, connection, and self-knowledge.
Values, Wishes, and Intentions
Planning is a toolkit for self-knowledge, empowerment, and a shield against anxiety and fear. We will learn about building care teams for the dying; managing “love and stuff”, i.e., the material objects belonging to our nearest and dearest; and avoiding missed opportunities for end-of-life planning among underrepresented communities.
Explore how grief and loss can evolve through imagination, artistic practice, and ceremony. We spotlight visual artists and performers who share rituals and reflective practices to move through adversity.
