8/25 Community Read: Beyond the Book – Taking Action Toward Resilience

Join Aspen Words for an engaging virtual conversation with Laura Bartels, executive director of the Mindful Life Program and an educator with 17 years of experience in the field of mindfulness, for a presentation on building resilience.

Unexpected change and challenge is part of life, and we face it on both individual and societal levels. From the far-flung extremes of war-torn Aleppo to the pandemic’s effects right here in the Roaring Fork Valley, conflict and disruption are universal to the human condition. We hear that humans are resilient, but it’s not a given. How do we cultivate resiliency for ourselves and our communities so that we can thrive and flourish, even amid unprecedented change and challenge?

Laura will discuss the scientific bases and practical actions for improving resilience, with tie-ins to “The Beekeeper of Aleppo” and the challenges faced by its protagonists. Laura’s presentation will be 45 minutes in length, followed by a 15-minute Q&A period. Afterward, participants are invited to stay on for a 30-minute break-out room conversation to unpack the presentation and interact using guided prompts. Laura Bartels is the executive director of the Mindful Life Program, which brings personal and professional training in mindfulness and skills in living a meaningful life to a wide range of audiences. Her work helping people and communities put values into action offers a valuable foundation and perspective on the importance of inner sustainability.

Repost Michele Cardamone Photography・・・Still one of my favorite portraits. It was the time I drove by this totally cool looking guy and after a minute, swung my car around and asked if I could photograph him. So we met 2 weeks later and he had this extreme ease and comfort in front of my camera. We walked around the town of #carbondalecolorado and got some stunning #moodyportraits. Thank you Quinn for spending a couple of hours with a stranger and trusting me to photograph you! #aspenbusinessconnectmember#aspenportraits#aspenphotographer#portraitphotographerProfessional Photography Program, Colorado Mountain College CMC Connect - Spring Valley ...
