Graceful Resilience: Empowerment through Wellness

We are living in an unprecedented time! More than training, education, or experience, our resilience determines success in all areas of life. When faced with challenge, ambiguity, and adversity, those who practice skills that focus and calm the mind and body refuse to let fear hold them back. They literally break through the barriers keeping them “stuck”, to not only survive, but thrive as a result.

Prepare to experience a unique, integrative approach and increase resiliency through your investment in healing and wellness. We will engage, learn, and empower self with tools and strategies that are certain to optimize satisfaction at work and in daily life. All will be inspired, energized, and ready to explore possibilities and integrate practical ways to optimize health, perspective, and resilience as a result of our time together.

Resilience is not a personality trait or a genetic gift; it’s a set of learned skills, beliefs, and behaviors that we can integrate and cultivate. It is the ability to overcome adversity and move forward. Learn how to reroute the need for control, release stress, and cultivate a resilient mindset. Tap your innate ability to reset with strategies that can be applied immediately in all aspects of your life.

I’m excited to work with you!

  What Organizers Are Saying

One of the goals for our wellness committee this year was to provide support to our team members in the area of mindfulness. We are so fortunate to have developed a partnership with Mary to help us deliver on this. She took the time to get to know us and the type of culture we have. We launched a series about this and kicked it off with a presentation about Resiliency and Balance. The presentation Mary offered was excellent! The subject matter was very relevant and her delivery was flawless. We followed this with an experiential class on Yoga. Our team members enjoyed both presentations and look forward to additional classes Mary will be offering in the coming months. Mary is a valuable partner to our organization in this area. We would highly recommend Mary to any organization who is looking to deliver this type of material.

Mary was a delight to work with as a Women Lead Change conference breakout session presenter. Her topic – “Resilience” was a perfect addition to our line-up of professional leadership development for women. The conference was virtual and Mary’s style, warmth, and expert knowledge resonated with our attendees – at a time that they most needed it! Attendees voted her session number one in a post-conference survey! We would work with her again and recommend her to others. You won’t regret it!

Mary was a wonderful addition to the IPA Annual Meeting agenda! Incorporating a movement break mid-day and sunrise stretch (gentle yoga) in the morning was a great way for our attendees to feel invigorated and learn how to incorporate mindfulness and resilience tips into their busy, often stressful, days as pharmacists.
