Tuesday, October 26th, 2021 | 6:30-8:00pm (ET)-- Fully Online Workshop
Loneliness has a nick name: ‘the silent killer’. It slowly destroys people because it is a serious risk factor for assorted health problems, early death, as well as anxiety, depression and addiction. There is also a stigma attached to loneliness; this is why people have a hard time to admit it.
In our workshop, we will view loneliness as a survival mechanism that drives us toward the benefits of human companionship. We will look at the different faces of loneliness and focus on creative paths to connecting.
The sources of burnout are many and varied such as: lack of control, unfairness, work overload, breakdown of community, loss of meaning, etc. Being well equipped in order to successfully handle these storms in our personal and/or professional life is key.
In this multi-day workshop series, we will explore and work on the 4 cornerstones of our well-being: focus, positive self-talk, connection, and meaning. Our approach to this topic also includes an infusion of Ignatian spirituality.
Participants are encouraged to attend all 4 workshops, however, there is no requirement to do so.
