Join behavioral economist Nathalie Rachel Sinyard to explore themes of rebuilding and renewal after personal disaster, crisis, or burnout.
“The only thing tragedy gives us is the opportunity to rebuild our life.”
~ Paulo Coehlo
When working with people who have experienced a burnout or crisis, one of the more daunting parts of recovery, beyond feeling better, is rebuilding and renewal with purpose. How to reckon with the trail of destruction left by the crisis? How to rebuild with integrity after potentially months of poor judgement, poor habits, and a depleted personality that has affected our relationships, work, health, and reputation? Where do we even begin to rebuild a life we can be proud of?
Fortunately, people who have successfully made it through this process can emerge on the other side with a newfound pride, clarity, and gratitude. How?
Some questions and topics we’ll explore during the salon:
- What are the practical steps to take when you’re building from rock bottom?
- What can we observe from others who have crashed, burned, and yet come back stronger?
- Even if we have never experienced anything so drastic, what can we learn about flourishing and fresh starts from those who have?
- Why are some people able to come through the darkness while others remain stuck?
- How do you rebuild trust in yourself? How do you regain the trust of others?
- How do we integrate these new experiences and emerge with more knowledge, strength, and power than before?
We’ll use a few public case studies to discuss what is happening to someone physically, psychologically, and spiritually when they experience a crisis and need to start over.
Let’s dive deeper into humans’ incredible resilience and learn how to apply this to be wiser, stronger, more compassionate and authentic.
“Never be afraid to fall apart because it’s an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along.”
