Space and time for exploring what personal resilience is (and perhaps isn’t) and how this relates to the community we find ourselves in.
The evening will provide and opportunity for personal reflection to enhance resilience and wellbeing. A chance to interact with the ComingUp4Air model of 4 positive postures and the evidence-based practices which accompany them and to provide some practical takeaways for sustaining resilience in one’s self and the community.
