The Simple Care of a Hopeful Heart
~ Strengthening the Inner Life of the Parent in Challenging Times ~
One of the greatest gifts we can share with our children and others is a sense of our own inner peace. However, we can’t share what we don’t have. By discussing psychological and classical spiritual approaches to maintaining a healthy perspective and enhancing resilience in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others) and author of Perspective: The Calm within the Storm, Bounce: Living the Resilient Life, Night Call: Embracing Compassion and Hope in a Troubled World and Riding the Dragon offers insights into how we can remain strong and, in turn, extend our warmth to our children and others without losing our own inner fire in the process. Topics will include: maintaining a sense of perspective, chronic and acute secondary stress, developing a self-care protocol, knowing the “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life, depth self-awareness, inner darkness, and strengthening your own framework of reflection and mindfulness.
We hope you are able to set aside this time for yourself to receive this practical, illustrative, lively, rich presentation that will provide essential information on resilience as well as personal well-being.
AdventHealth Foundation DeLand has graciously offered to buy each family one of Dr. Wicks’ four books.
