Program Details

Resilience leads to a happier, calmer and more potent life. Through the science of resilience and the study of happiness, we can choose to enhance our capacity and to focus on the practices and attitudes that enable us to cultivate healthy transformation. As we do, we build a foundation for optimal living in times of stress, loss, and sudden change.

Maria Sirois is the master teacher I have been looking for. Whether you are a novice or an expert, you are sure to learn something extraordinary about your life and the meaning of your work. If you have the chance to learn from Maria, don’t think twice, just go.
