9:20-9:30 Book Review: Barbara Boldt – Resilient by Rick Hanson

Because it’s hard right now to count on the world outside, we all need to grow strengths inside like grit, gratitude, and compassion—the keys to resilience, and to lasting well-being in a changing world. True resilience is much more than enduring terrible conditions. We need resilience every day to raise a family, work at a job, cope with stress, deal with health problems, navigate issues with others,

heal from old pain, and simply keep on going. In this book, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Rick Hanson shows you how to develop twelve vital inner strengths hardwired into your own nervous system. Dr. Hanson’s step-by-step approach is grounded in the science of positive neuroplasticity. When you’ve developed these 12 strengths, you’ll be able to feel less stressed, pursue opportunities with confidence, and stay calm and centered in the face of adversity, no matter what life throws at you.
