The Wholebeing Weekend will be held at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
This on-site Wholebeing Weekend is all about busting out of a small story, and living into a bigger picture—learning to live in expectant openness to what’s happening now and holding hope for what’s to come.
This event is open to all those interested in:
✲ Nourishing hope and creating space for possibilities
✲ Engaging tools that strengthen resilience, to be more nimble and fluid as you ride the waves of life.
You are not alone. This is a shared journey. On opening night, Megan McDonough will create a context for connecting with your fellow travelers, getting a sense of togetherness as we embark on the weekend experience.
In the afternoon, we move to the science and application of learned hopefulness, taught by Dan Tomasulo, author of the new book Learned Hopefulness. Hope gives you something to hold onto and look forward to as you live with the difficulties of today. You’ll learn and explore experientially how hope interventions are used in different timelines, mentally moving between the past, present, and future.
In the evening, you’ll take everything you learned and connect in community through exercises, dialogue, and good old-fashioned play—integrating, deepening, and celebrating lessons learned today about stress and hope.
Life gives you many opportunities to pick yourself up … again and again. Life calls for perseverance. In today’s session, Maria Sirois will introduce you to the paradox of resilience—a new and slightly different take on resilience that integrates with hope.
In the evening, we’ll have a campfire (weather permitting) and savor our learnings and time together.
In our closing session, we will reflect on the journey, integrate key learnings, and tap into an openness to meet the unknown that is inherent in this human experience.
