Building Resilience for Better Mental Health


We all experience stress, but during trying times it’s important to remember that we’re not powerless in how we navigate the challenges ahead. Having the right tools to meet moments of adversity can help us not just survive, but thrive. Anchored in the science and practice of mindfulness and positive psychology, beloved Kripalu Faculty member Sam Chase leads this immersive popular program—now online.

RISE™, Kripalu's mindfulness program is evidence-based and packed with nearly 50 years of Kripalu wisdom alongside 15 years of peer-reviewed research that demonstrates statistically significant increases in self-compassion, life satisfaction, and resilience.

In this live and recorded six-week program, you will

  • Recognize the physiological symptoms of stress as they arise
  • Discover the physical, mental, and emotional building blocks of resilience
  • Train in evidence-based mind-body tools shown to reduce stress and foster well-being
  • Design a personalized plan for supporting your resilience beyond the program.

Finish the program with the skills to respond to critical moments with intention rather than reactivity, and a transformed vision of stress that helps you see not only its challenges but also its opportunities for fostering creativity and meaning.

Note You will have access to the video recording(s) for 30 days after the program ends. All recordings will be available within 72 hours of the end of each session.
